One of the tech guru, hoping to live to the ripe old age of 200, are used to invest in the “immortality of science.”
The Russian expert, who allegedly worked as an adviser to Roman Abramovich, has spent about $100 million (£80 million) in the field of biotechnology, to extend the human life span.
Sergey, Young is a self-made multi-millionaire investor, who wants to change the lives of a billion people.”

In order to do so, he is pumping millions into anti-aging technology with long-Life Vision Fund.
He will have bionic body parts, 3-D organ printing and the “avatars”, for example, people can extend their lives considerably.
“Today is the day, no one knows what it is to live out of the 122 that,” said Young, speaking to the Telegraph.
“As the oldest person on the planet, was a Frenchwoman who died in 1997.”
Young is now spending money on a wide range of technologies, including robotics, to the replacement of organs are cultured in bioreactors in the body, and the AL-led research.
“We are trying to get a human avatar, and replaceable parts of the human body, a 3D body printing,” he said.
“We are willing to invest in such things as early cancer diagnosis, artificial intelligence in the development of medicinal products.
“I have met with has more than 100 businesses per year. It’s an exciting area.”
A backup project is a uk based company called Juvenscence, that is, the development of senolytic drugs.
They are designed for the removal of the degradation of the cells of the body, rejuvenate the tissues damaged by age.
Another company funded by a group of Young, it is LyGenesis, who is trying to regenerate the organs in their own bodies.
“The biggest problem with the replaceable artificial parts of the body, your immune response,” the multi-millionaire explained.
“So, when you put it in your body, the body will think that it is a foreign object and they will do anything to get him to deny it.
“But if you increase the size of your liver at in your body, right, in your lymph and this is a way to solve the problem].”
And then there’s the Freenome, a Silicon Valley firm that makes use of machine learning to cancer early on is to track it down.
The training of COMPUTER-based systems, Freenome hopes to spot colon cancer at an early stage where the treatment can still be effective.
“Seventy to 80 years ago, the average life span on this Earth 43 years,” said Young.
“Now, in countries such as the united kingdom and the united states, it is somewhere between 75 and 80 years of age.
“So we’re going to continue to expand [it]. We’re going to break the barrier.
“And we’re going to have a much more sophisticated technology, changes in lifestyle and in the health care system.”
But, even if he is, it greatly increase the service life of a man, Young, not afraid to admit that he didn’t really want to be immortal.
“To be honest, I’m against immortality,” he said.
“I think that when you get out of the death of a human life, and we forget what’s important.”
Young is not the only one who thinks that we can have eternal life.”
Last year, we spoke with a renowned futurologist, Dr. Ian Pearson, who said that anyone who lived till 2050 would be likely to be able to get an idea.
“There are a lot of people who are interested in your life,” says Dr. Pearson.
“It has always been there, but the main difference is that the tech is improving so quickly, a lot of people believe that they might actually be able to do that.”
He says that it is a way of life, and to extend the use of bio-technologies and medicine in order to “refresh the body and age it.”
“No one wants to live forever”, at 95-years-old, but a rejuvenation of the body, 29, or 30, you might want to do that.”
This can be done in a number of ways, including genetic modification, that prevent (or reverse) the aging process of the cells.
But Dr. Pearson thinks that it is much more likely that we will prolong our life in a different way: the gameplay.
“For a long, long time before we see a solution to our body and feel each and every time, we feel, we can control our mind to focus on the machinery of the world, so we will have to effectively live in the cloud,” he says.
“The spirit shall be, in principle, be done in the cloud, and can be used in the game that will give you the feeling of living in the real world.”
He says that in 50 years ‘time, we might be able to rent one for android anywhere in the world, just like a car rental”, and the uploading of your consciousness into it.
“By 2060, people will like you, and I will be in a position to buy it, and by 2070, people in low-income countries and on low incomes will be able to buy it.
“Everyone is going to have a chance for immortality, as a kind of electronic immortality.
“After 10, 15, 20 years ago, and the price will come down in hundreds instead of millions.
“It should be able to be provided as part of the NHS. You should be able to purchase the premium offering, on a private subscription basis, or maybe you’ll have a basic presence of a network, and are allowed to make use of an android body.”
However, if our minds are online, do we even need a robot body? We could all just live in a computer simulation, with all my heart, according to Dr. Pearson.
“You should be able to devote most of your amount of time in the virtual world, and, of course, from anywhere in the world, on any computer.
“If you want to be online all the time, you should be able to have a very good living online. It would all be virtual, so you should be able to have what you want. 72 virgins, if that’s what you live for; all of it, because it’s completely irrelevant.
“You’d be so nice, if you could imagine online. You might even want to get out in the real world.
You can do it with your mind to make millions and millions of different minds, and the infinite intellect, and in several places at the same time.
