Study: Computer can determine whether you`ll die from Covid
Using patient data, artificial intelligence can make a 90 per cent accurate assessment of whether a person will die from Covid-19 or not, according to new research at the University of Copenhagen. Body mass index (BMI), gender, and high blood pressure are among the most heavily weighted factors. The research can be used to predict the number of patients in hospitals, who will need a respirator and determine who ought to be first in line for a vaccination. The results of the study were published in the journal Scientific Reports - Nature.
Artificial intelligence is able to predict who is most likely to die from the coronavirus. In doing so, it can also help decide who should be at the front of the line for the precious vaccines now being administered across Denmark. The result is from a newly published study by researchers at the University of Copenhagen's Department of Computer Science. Since the Covid pandemic's first wave, researchers have been working to develop computer models that can predict, based on disease history and health data, how badly people will be affected by Covid-19.
