Nanotechnology May Lead Human Life Longevity
New studies suggest that human life extension may become a very real possibility by the year 2029.
Ray Kurzweil, a longtime advocate of the creation of artificial intelligence and the eventual merging between man and machines, says at the present rate of development of new innovations in human life extension and anti-aging therapies, we will be able to see this longer lifespan within the next few decades.
The present state of such technologies is focused primarily on warding off the negative effects of aging and Kurzeil says: “I believe we will reach a point around 2029 when medical technologies will add one additional year every year to your life expectancy”.
He theorizes that nano-robotic implants will be able to replicate the effect of the human immune system and hopes that one day.
“We could have a nanobot programmed to deal with all pathogens, and could download new software from the internet if a new type of enemy such as a new biological virus emerged”.
