The Future of Longevity

Dmitry Kaminskiy, Partner, Deep Knowledge Ventures, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim. 

In this conversation, they talk about What is longevity and why does it matter if we live longer? Health span v. Lifespan. The Intersection of AgeTech, WealthTech and FinTech. The silver tsunami (of aging). Quality-adjusted life-year (QALY). Scenarios. Rise of policy scene for longevity. Biomarkers on the path to population health. How AI intersects with longevity. P4 (Preventive, Precision, Personalized and Participatory) Medicine. Who will first reach their 123rd birthday? A Manhattan project for longevity. The Longevity Industry 1.0 and 2.0—towards the next trillion dollar industry.

The takeaway is that longevity may indeed be the next trillion dollar industry and may perhaps be the most complex industry as well. Staying in good health is an important shared goal across the globe, and our health is constantly under threat from diseases, including aging. However, there is a drastic difference in the goals of increasing healthspan v. increasing life span. To my mind, there might even have to be a significant ethical debate whether life span is worth increasing on a general basis. Do we really need to live that much longer? Is there an optimal life span and does it depend on the available resources or the available meaning of life that the individual has at any given time? These are complex questions without obvious answers.
