Podcast #51: The Longevity Dialogues Part 1, The Long View, with Sergey Young, David Wood, and Jose Cordeiro

“What I’m after is not living to 1,000. I’m after letting people avoid death for as long as they want to.”–Aubrey de Grey

It’s all so complicated. Back in January I hosted a panel entitled The Dawn of Superlongevity: Scenarios for a post-aging future. I hoped to address many of the issues involved in getting to radical life extension–and dealing with it. We barely scratched the surface. In that light, this is the first in a series of Longevity Dialogues. In this installment, we explore some of the challenges and logistics involved in implementing radical life extension, as well as the implications for the very meaning of human life, should we attain it. Our panelists:

  • Sergey Young–XPrize innovation board member, founder of the Longevity Vision Fund, and author of The Science and Technology of Growing Young.
  • David Wood–Chair of the London Futurists and author of The Abolition of Aging
  • Jose Cordero–Author of La Muerte de las Muerte (The Death of Death) and former candidate for the European parliament.

Podcast Special Edition: X Prize Future of Longevity Impact Roadmap

“The challenge is that the day before something is truly a breakthrough, it’s a crazy idea. And crazy ideas are very risky to attempt”–Peter Diamandis

 

Peter Diamandis addresses the Future of Longevity Impact Roadmap workshop at the X Prize Foundation, April 29, 2019.

If you want to know the raison d’etre of the X Prize, you need go no further than the Peter Diamandis quote above.  It’s all about pushing the boundaries of science and technology.  It’s about achieving the heretofore unachievable.

The Future of Longevity X Prize Impact Roadmap workshop was held at the X Prize Foundation headquarters in Culver City, CA, April 29-30. 2019.  It brought together dozens of diverse thought leaders across science, industry and longvity advocacy.   Sponsored by X Prize board member, and Longevity Vision Fund founder, Sergey Young, its aim was to brainstorm ideas for a longevity X Prize.     This Seeking Delphi™ special edition podcast features interviews and commentary from the workshop.
