Researchers at the University of East Anglia have begun to create software that will be able to predict a person's lifespan.
According to scientists, this will help people better manage the remaining time, in particular, redistribute finances and, if possible, get rid of bad habits that affect life expectancy.
The project is called Big Data. It contains generalized anonymous medical information about 3.4 million Britons for many years.
“Big Data is a large-scale project, ” says its coordinator Richard Siov. "Many pharmaceutical companies and food distribution organizations use its data to shape general trends."
In turn, one of the leading researchers of the project, Elena Kulinskaya, believes that doctors, thanks to such software, will be able to better serve their patients, comparing them with centenarians who have taken certain medications. People will become more rational in spending their retirement savings, having an idea of how long they have left to live.
