What can we expect to see regarding advancements in extending the expectancy of human life?

Michael D. West, Ph.D., CEO of AgeX Therapeutics, discusses how average life expectancy has increased from about 45 in the early 1900’s to the mid- 70s today due to advancements in antibiotics and surgical techniques, among other things. He posits that the revolution in artificial intelligence (and approaching singularity) is already impacting science and will only increase the rapid advancements from the laboratory to the clinic. Those advancements, Dr. West believes, will result in an increasing lifespan for humans which we need to start thinking about and preparing as society adapts to humans living a longer and healthier life. This video is part of a series from AgeX on research into aging and human longevity. For more information on Agex Therapeutics, please visit http://www.agexinc.com.
