Genetic studies have now firmly established that ageing is regulated by specific genes conserved from yeast to mice.
We can now improve the lifespan of C. elegans, more than double the lifespan of flies and mice, and improve the lifespan of rats.
David Sinclair is an Australian biologist and Professor of Genetics best known for his research on the biology of lifespan extension.
If you could improve by implanting a chip in your brain, 'update yourself' and partially become a machine, would you?
Quantum machine learning techniques are likely to have far-reaching effects on many of the technologies we have become accustomed to.
Being weak and fragile, it stands to reason that sending AIs to do the looking for us saves both time and blind hope.
The inflection point at which computers, ‘thinking machines’ and AI may become infinitely powerful is no more than 20–25 years away.
Humans are not an end, but a beginning. They need not fear imaginary gods, but need instead to create minds more powerful than the gods.
Counter intuitively, the primary obstacles are not technical. Rather it is government inaction, in both funding and regulation.
Entrepreneurs are flocking to the final frontier, where Moore’s Law has unleashed massive, enduring opportunities.
