  • Simple Blood Tests could tell Age of Blood Donor

Simple blood tests could tell the age of the blood donor in a jiffy. Deep Neural Network is the name of the game.

The majority of us know our age thanks to the birthday we celebrate each and every year. Yet there are poor orphans around the world who have their birth date shrouded in a mystery.

Some of them would love to know when they were born in the first place. A new form of blood test may predict with 100% accuracy what the blood donor’s chronological age is. 

AI is being used to test blood and find out the age of the patients who have had samples of their blood taken for analysis. Via deep learning algorithms, the scientists have estimated the age of anybody within a 10 year time span.

Right now the accuracy rate is 83.5% but in the future it could easily be 100%. Such elements in the blood as blood urea, sugar levels, RBC count and the presence of albumin could allow the age of the donor to be determined with promptness. It is an exciting field indeed. Via the analysis of biomarkers, the age of an individual could be easily determined.  

In future times, any anti-aging efforts will involve this age-determination via a blood sample. The AI methodology employed for this procedure is termed Deep Neural Network.

This acts in a similar manner to the human brain which is a miracle of Mother Nature. Machine learning is old hat and this artificial intelligence process goes the whole hog by extending into a number of applications.

If a person is older or younger than he or she is thought to be, a simple blood test will determine the truth with little or no doubt in the future. Refugees and children who have been separated from their parents could benefit from this future blood test. 

Several children who have been kidnapped can also know their ages via this method. The blood tests will be basic in nature and simple to administer and analyze.

In the future, these blood tests can have their results shown online after being tested on an online basis as well. Deep Neural Network is the latest cutting-edge system of determining results of blood tests among other conundrums. It will make things easier for human beings in the future. 

This research has been published in the journal Aging.
