Kao Corporation (Head Office: Chuo-ku, Tokyo; President and CEO: Yoshihiro Hasebe, "Kao") and MILIZE Inc. (Head Office: Minato-ku, Tokyo, President and CEO: Toru Tanaka, "MILIZE") agreed to launch the new project that both commit to run Kao's "Virtual Human Body Generative Model" on the MILIZE's developing "AI Health Visualization Tool". The tool, slated to be released in 2023, estimates and visualizes the future medical expenses and encourages behavior modification for the sake of satisfying increasing desire of staying healthy for long.
・The tool converts health status and behavior information into monetary values and display them. It estimates future medical expenses based on health check data and information of behavior and physical conditions related to daily health data (such as the number of steps, body weight, sleeping hours, amount of exercise, intake of healthy food, and changes in lifestyle) input by the user.
・Taking advantages of Kao's Virtual Human Body Generative Model, the tool estimates health items, possibly related to diseases, from various behaviors, habits, and physical conditions*1 . It utilizes these data for daily encouraging behavior modification to help the user maintain healthful habits and improve their physical factors that may cause diseases. By regularly collecting data of health status and lifestyle, the tool can advise personally for the user's better behavior and lead to better health, as well as estimate more precisely future medical expenses.
・The tool can also be used for the employee health cares of more corporations and enterprises. Checking health data, simply inputting data of employee, and visualizing the estimated health conditions of employees, will help improve employee's health and reduce medical expenses in the future. MILIZE is to add to the tool the functions of "milizePro,"*2 its financial life plan simulator service for corporate customers and occupational fields.
・The service is to be offered, via API, to companies with employee health data and those providing healthcare applications and web services.
This statistical model, co-developed by Kao and Preferred Networks, Inc., covers a comprehensive set of over 1,600 attributes related to the body obtained by health checks, lifestyles (diet, exercise, sleep), and daily keenly interested topics such as personality traits, preferences, stress and menstruation, and provides these attribute patterns. Inputting data enables the model to statistically estimate extrapolated data of other items. Third-party developers can freely define input and output data points.
