Personally, my opinion is that the most basic prospects of the 21st century are at the intersection of biotechnology, personalized medicine and artificial intelligence. I think, that next fundamental task in artificial intelligence development is to exempt progressive businessmen from the routine work of making money.
I foresee that progressive businessmen will begin to use artificial intelligence (AI) and that it will give them a fundamental advantage over traditional businesses. I’m absolutely sure that in 5, maximum 10 years the average oligarch will not compare the length of ocean yachts or popularity of their football clubs, but will compare powers of their financial AI, access to technologies of personalized medicine and their level of ability to prolong their own lives.”
Speakers during the event included Dr. Alex Zhavoronkov, CEO of Deep Knowledge Ventures portfolio company InSilico Medicine, who explained “By bringing together class-leading researchers, pensions experts, financial heavyweights and science communicators at meetings like this, we hope to facilitate collaboration across disciplines and produce the next generation of projects that will take longevity science from the bench to the clinic”. InSilico Medicine recently announced that Dr Charles Cantor, former Director of the Human Genome Project, had been appointed Chairman of their scientific advisory board, placing the company at the vanguard of efforts to apply bioinformatics to longevity research. Dr. Zhavoronkov also made available complementary copies of his new book ‘The Ageless Generation: How Advances in Biomedicine Will Transform the Global Economy’.
Participants of the event were extended invitations to attend the International Symposium on Geroprotectors meeting on 'Practical Applications of Ageing Research for Drug Discovery', at the MipTEC conference in Basel, Switzerland September 23rd - 24th 2014.
