There are currently 1 billion retired people worldwide, and this number will continue to increase. We will have more and more elderly people and this will put pressure on healthcare systems, pension funds, and social security systems especially in countries with the highest number of elderly people". There are many companies working with advanced technologies and artificial intelligence to devise ways to help people stay healthy as they age.
FDA approved treatments that promote healthy longevity are expected to be available in 5 to 10 years.
The field of longevity medicine is growing. The focus is not on the treatment of diseases, but how to prevent disease over the course the individual's life so that age related disease can be avoided. It will be possible to carry out interventions that act deeply in the programming and revitalization of the immune system. Early interventions may delay aging and prevent people from developing cancer, Alzheimer's, osteoporosis, among other diseases. People will be able to live well in good health at the age of 80. Researchers have already understood that it is possible to control aspects of biological aging.
The Use of Artificial Intelligence will enable innovations such as designing customized medical treatments for patients, creating new specialized remedies to treat diseases, and accelerating research cycles in the pharmaceutical industry that traditionally take years. This will allow people to have access to treatments much faster.
Several companies focused on longevity already use AI to develop longevity biomarkers that can be used by insurers to assess people's biological age. This will allow people with good health to obtain less expensive insurance. A company has developed a psychological aging clock that measures a person's psychological age and determines how their psychological age is impacting their biological age.
