MyLongevity app developed by U.K researchers

Techstination feature for Friday, October 9, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      They had been working on this long before the pandemic….but researchers at the U.K.’s University of East Anglia have created an app called Mylongevity….designed to forecast your life expectancy.   They have used anonymous data from electronic health records…including social demographics….and health characteristics…to produce the estimates.   Lead researcher…Professor Elena Kulinskaya…

“About five years ago, we obtained funding from the institute and faculty of actuaries to look at how various health factors affect life expectancy.  And we are working on this project with a very large database of primary care data.”

The professor says she believes the app is more accurate than what has been available before.  You can check it out at
