Nanotech To Bring Radical Life Extension
Peter Diamandis, founder and executive chairman of XPRIZE and cofounder and executive chairman of Singularity University believes that nanotech will bring the possibility of radically extended life.
Nanotech And Life Extension
This week, in an onstage Q&A at Singularity University's Global Summit, Diamandis elaborated on his vision on how nanotechnologies can lead to techniques to spot disease and even regenerate the body, interface with human mind and bring radical life extension.
As time progresses, the entrepreneur see humans and technology interacting to ultimately link the human mind up to machines and bring longer lifespans.
SingularityHub reports that Diamandis said at the Singularity University Global Summit that nanotech will help identifying risk factors in human genome in order to stop disease before that occurs. The health company founded by him, Human Longevity, aims to combine key health information with comprehensive data about a person's genetics in order to determine their risk profile for various diseases.
Future medicine will also help replenishing the body's stem cell population so everyone will have a restored regenerative engine throughout their entire life. According to the online publication Inverse, another interesting development in the near future is the interface mind-machine.
Diamandis explained that the focus of his research is nanotechnology that would allow machines to interface with human brains. This is getting closer to reality since researchers at the University of Southern California have been already working on neural implants able to enhance cognitive functions.
According to Diamandis, the technology is slowly progressing to the stage where humans will actually be able log on through the mind. These developments open the possibility of radical life extension. Humans will be able to live centuries in the same body, as well as uploading their consciousness to a computer
Diamandis is collaborating with various companies pursuing brain-machine interfaces and nanotechnology. According to him, the time horizon on these technologies may be 20 years or 30 years away.
