Roadmap to Immortality – Artificial Intelligence

Roadmap-5-AI

I’d like to present the last part of the Human Physical Immortality Roadmap, which is devoted to Artificial Intelligence. There’s a good chance this technology will be the game changer for the humanity at large. It may define our future.

We can write a book about the evolution of different technologies and how they are going to influence human condition and help achieve immortality. This Roadmap can serve as an illustrated table of contents for this book. The only problem that we have is we don’t know which publishing house to go to. If some of you have any contacts at a publisher that might be interested in such a book, please, let me know.

Third International “Genetics of Aging and Longevity” Conference Featured Research on Multiple Ways to Combat Aging

Genetics of aging and longevity conference

More than 200 participants from North America, Europe and Asia met in post-Olympic Sochi for five days this April, as world-famous anti-aging researchers exchanged ideas at the third International Conference on Genetics of Aging and Longevity. They discussed progress and remaining obstacles, in their efforts to deepen our understanding of this complex phenomenon and develop strategies for interventions.

The central themes of the conference included (1) identification of molecular targets for lifespan-extending drugs, (2) understanding the protective genotypes of centenarians and exceptionally long-lived animal species, (3) the complex roles and interactions of genetic determinants, epigenetic regulation, metabolism, gut microbiota, lifestyle and environment in shaping the aging process, (4) developing technologies for artificial growth, cryopreservation and transplantation of organs, and (5) new technologies, including gene-editing nanoparticles and artificial chromosomes, as prospective anti-aging tools.

The doors opened on April 6, 2014, to the 3rd International conference Genetics of Aging and Longevity, organized by the Science for Life Extension Foundation in collaboration with the Institute of biology of the Komi Science Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS). Scientists from many fields of biology, medicine and informatics, and from 19 countries (Russia, U.S., Canada, Ukraine, UK, China, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Israel, The Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Israel, Italy, Estonia, Azerbaijan, Sweden, Uzbekistan, and Jordan) met in Sochi and were unified by one common goal – the ever-growing importance of understanding the mechanisms of aging, to develop ways to prevent and possibly reverse this debilitating and deadly process that underlies virtually all age-dependent diseases.

Roadmap to Immortality – Cyborgization

Roadmap-7-Cyborgization

Here’s a completely different approach to immortality – not thinking about how to restore damaged organs, but replace them with new artificial ones.

Roadmap to Immortality – Cryonics

Roadmap-3-Cryo

A person is not a transhumanist if they don’t support cryonics. Cryonics is plan B for that case when it doesn’t work out to defeat aging within the person’s lifespan. Cryonics is the best possible action in the worst possible circumstances. It doesn’t make any sense to bury the body after a person’s death when the body can be stored in liquid nitrogen until the point of time in the future when reanimation might be feasible. The way how to make cryonics effective is described in the 3rd part of our Human Physical Immortality Roadmap.

Roadmap to Immortality – Digital Immortality

Roadmap-6-Digital_Immort

We have created the Human Physical Immortality Roadmap to persuade people that radical life extension is possible within our lifetime. The only thing needed is larger scope of scientific research in favor of longevity. Here’s another part of the Roadmap for you.

Roadmap to Immortality – Regenerative Medicine

Roadmap-2-Regenmed

The Roadmap consists of 7 parts. This is the second one. Any comments and edits are more than welcome. Please, let me know what you think.

Also, if you could suggest a way to publish it somewhere in a nice journal that would be great. Thanks!
