Never underestimate the power of the selfie – expert can now apparently use it to tell when you’re going to die.
Science and tech firm Lapetus has developed a “scientifically proven” method of forecasting mortality, based on the rate a person is ageing.
And it does this by analysing your selfies.
Lapetus marketing chief Janet Anderson, told Global News:
[The consumer] uploads a selfie and answers a few questions and then we take that info and analyze it and are able to produce an output of a life expectancy.
Taking a look at 350 points on the face, and thousands of regions, we assess for BMI, gender and are able to… detect if there was smoking [in a person’s history]
Insurance advisers even say they can see insurers using the technology, due to its efficiency.
You can go through our platform in less than 10 minutes and during that time we can provide that info to an insurance carrier
We can't think of a better excuse for filters.
