About us

Lapetus Solutions Inc. (LSI) integrates science and technology with machine learning to develop tools and platforms that enable industries relying on life event prediction to reduce and replace their dependence on traditional assessment methods with faster, more cost-effective and increasingly accurate results.

By combining Life Sciences, Sensory Analytics and Dynamic Questioning to provide real time insight into an individual’s health status and longevity, as well as to examine risk within specific groups, our tools also combine to form the basis of three breakthrough customer engagement platforms, delivering fully customizable, end-to-end solutions for the life insurance and financial planning industries.

Our team is comprised of internationally recognized scientists in their fields, including Biodemography, Facial Analytics, Health, Aging and Data Science. Working together and drawing from the data and research of thousands of global experts, they leverage the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to more accurately predict life events in real time, including mortality, morbidity and healthy lifespan.

Our Name & Logo

Lapetus was the Greek god of mortality.
Our first platform, Chronos, is named after his brother, the Greek god of time.

The panels represent the three phases of life according to evolution biology: childhood, adulthood and old-age, through which a mortality curve runs, reflecting the fundamental linkage between biology and duration of life that is at the foundation of Lapetus biodemographic thinking and methods.

Life Sciences

Combining decades of longevity research with biodemography at the core, specific covariates linked to lifespan are identified and predictive algorithms are generated.

Through the compilation, distillation and analysis of complex and constantly evolving data from thousands of global researchers, our scientists assess and identify market-specific trends, linking specific questions to mortality risk and survival prospects.  

All of the following are taken into account in calculating results: anthropology, ecology, embryology, epidemiology, evolutionary biology, genetics, molecular biology, pathology and population genetics.

Our Life Sciences tools can be used to provide:

  • Life Expectacy (LE) and Healthy Life Expectancy (HLE) estimates 
  • Trend analysis on blocks of insured populations
  • Mortality trends using Live Life Tables

Sensory Analytics

An emerging science-based technology that uses digital images to examine an individual’s physical features to determine longevity, health status and disease susceptibility.

LSI scientists use machine learning techniques to build sensory analytics algorithms that provide real time results. They are currently researching the enhanced information that sight, voice and skin-based analytics can provide and will continue to develop new algorithms and corresponding tools based on their findings.

From just a simple selfie, our Facial Analytics technology examines 100’s of points and 1000’s of regions on the face to instantly provide:

  • BMI calculation
  • Estimated Age
  • Gender
  • Smoking Indication

Dynamic Questioning

Scientifically formulated questions that change according to responses provide more insight and accuracy into individual longevity than standardized questionnaires.

For years, traditional methods of predicting life events have relied on asking the same types of questions. The Lapetus platform uses a range of highly predictive and variable questions based on aging science that change dynamically based on initial responses, providing results that are unique to each individual.

Dynamic Questioning enables us to identify people who are likely to live exceptionally long lives, even in the face of potentially harmful behavioral risk factors.

Not all smokers are equal

By combining Life Sciences, Dynamic Questioning and Sensory Analytics, it is now possible to identify smokers who are likely to live longer, as well as detect when someone has not been truthful about their past and present smoking habits on an application form.
