Deep tech disruption can change life expectancy and mindset – author Guy Perelmuter explains how.

Guy Perelmuter is the award-winning author of Present Future, a book about understanding how technology has shaped the world and the constant changes we experience as a species. It is about making sure we understand the origins of some of the key technologies that are transforming the modern world and their impacts on society, the economy and the environment.

And, of course, an enormous disruptor of society is the quest for longevity – living longer and living more healthily, with the debilitating diseases of aging consigned to the history books.

Guy joined me to discuss the nature of change and the future of technology – check out the fascinating interview:

Guy Perelmuter on…

The change of pace

Technology has always been the key driver for civilization to move forward. The biggest difference that we are experiencing in our lifetimes is not that change is happening, because change has always happened, but the speed, the pace with which we are experiencing that change.

The future of longevity

Life Sciences is sitting at the intersection of a number of converging technologies – machine learning, big data, a deeper understanding of how biology is working at the cellular and molecular level. There’s an explosion of new companies and a massive convergence of technologies that are going to continue to push Life Sciences into the future.

Future longevity tech

We are going to witness, going forward, a flurry of developments in the medical world, from robotics in surgery to telemedicine, and from AI and computer vision doing drug discoveries to senolytics going into the treatments for longevity. I expect that a lot of the hype is actually going to be able to differentiate between the technologies that are still in their infancy and that have to be tested and validated, versus the ones that are already accessible.

Zero click healthcare

When you look at most of the diseases that are going to be our worst enemies for the forthcoming decades – neurodegenerative diseases, cancers, heart problems – those are diseases that are going to be perfectly suited for that particular technology where you’ll be constantly monitoring your body, trying to listen for the signals that are going to trigger a specific treatment … and hopefully further increase our life expectancy in the next few decades.
