The implementation of Deep Learning (DL) Prediction techniques for Human Age Prediction (HAP) has been widely researched and studied to prevent, treat, and extend life expectancy. While most algorithms rely on facial images, MRI scans, and DNA methylation for training and testing, they are seldom implemented due to a lack of significant validation and evaluation in real-world scenarios, low performance, and technical challenges. To address these issues, this paper proposes the Data, Classification Technique, Prediction, and View (DCPV) taxonomy, which outlines the primary components required to implement and validate a deep learning model for predicting human age. By providing a common baseline for end-users and researchers, this taxonomy offers a clearer view of the constituents of deep learning prediction approaches, enabling the development of similar systems in the health domain. In contrast to existing machine learning methods, the proposed taxonomy emphasizes the value of deep learning practices based on performance, accuracy, and efficiency in predicting human age. To validate the DCPV taxonomy, the study examines 31 state-of-the-art research journal articles within the HAP system domain, assessing the taxonomy's performance, accuracy, robustness, and model comparisons.
