Scientists have trained an artificial intelligence tool to predict sex and estimate age from electrocardiogram readouts. They suggest that, with further development, the tool could soon be helping doctors to assess the overall health of their patients.
An electrocardiogram, also known as an ECG or EKG, is a painless, simple test that records the electrical activity of a person’s heart.
A recent paper in the journal Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology, describes how the team developed an artificial intelligence (AI) tool to predict sex and estimate age from ECG data. If you want to know more about this news, click here.
