The robot eye of AI
January 19, 2021
A group of scientists has created a neural network that identifies senescent cells by their morphology and can be used for senolytic drug screening [1]. Image recognition is a showcase triumph of artificial intelligence. While this problem was considered extremely hard to crack in previous decades, algorithms have now exceeded human abilities in multiple cases....

In this presentation given at Ending Age-Related Diseases 2020, Dr. Ronjon Nag of the R42 Institute discusses his company's endeavors into biotechnology investment along with the nature of artificial intelligence and how it can be used to defeat aging. He discusses the myriad forms of artificial intelligence, including machine learning systems, and the achievements that...
CGI of protein structures
December 08, 2020
Alphabet's subsidiary DeepMind has all but solved the problem of predicting a protein’s shape from its amino acid sequence. DeepMind’s program AlphaFold reached close to 90% average accuracy, which is comparable to experimental structural analysis. Proteins: life's multitool Proteins are the primary tool with which organisms do stuff. They are indispensable for most biological processes....
Live Longer with AI book
November 10, 2020
Artificial intelligence is the next big thing in medicine, or, using Silicon Valley's jargon, the next big disruptor. Not a thing of the future, AI is already here, changing our lives, and soon our healthcare, beyond recognition. Given how rapidly AI is invading the field of longevity research, it was only a matter of time...
Interview with Hanadie Yousef
February 10, 2020
At the recent Longevity Therapeutics Conference in San Francisco, we had the chance to interview Hanadie Yousef, the co-founder and CEO of Juvena Therapeutics. Juvena is isolating proteins from embryonic stem cells that promote tissue regrowth. Can you describe in more detail Juvena's approach to developing protein therapeutics that promote tissue regeneration in the elderly?...
Robots discussing
December 05, 2019
A type of artificial intelligence technique is now being used to develop new drugs and therapies and could perhaps even help to solve aging. An urgent need for aging biomarkers There has long been an urgent need in our field to develop increasingly accurate biomarkers of aging so that the efficacy of interventions can be...
