Artificial intelligence filters are often a hit on TikTok with the 'AI Manga' "ghost hunting" filter trending earlier this year - but now there is a new AI filter on the platform that's gone viral.

The AI stairway to heaven filter works by taking a photo of you and/or your surroundings and the technology then utilises this image and turns it into a set of stairs that appear to lead up to heaven.

But people are interpreting the meaning of the images in terms of how close they are to death - and so if you have a long and winding set of stairs it means you have a long life.

However, if you're AI-generated set of stairs is shorter - or in some cases just a door or even a descending set of stairs- it means that your life span will be shorter.

Here are some examples of the most viral videos from the trend:
