Congrats to Polina Mamoshina and Michael Ricciardi for winning this month's community rewards! Polina wins a $75 Amazon gift card and Michael wins an XPRIZE gift box. Click here to learn more about rewards for members.
Announcement: XPRIZE and California Governor Gavin Newsom have partnered to design a Wildfire Prize – a direct result of efforts from the Future of Forests Impact Roadmap and its community members! Click here to learn more.
With your input here in the community, at the lab and in two surveys, XPRIZE has been able to synthesize the following potential breakthroughs in longevity.

We now ask you to evaluate these breakthroughs and help us decide which can, and should, become XPRIZE competitions.

Why are these breakthroughs needed? How audacious are they (in terms of global impact)? What, if anything, must happen first to make these breakthroughs possible? And is anyone other than XPRIZE likely to do this?

If you believe a breakthrough has been overlooked, click on the "New Discussion" button to add one.

Welcome to the XPRIZE Longevity Community!


For much of the last century, Earth's population experienced tremendous increases in life expectancy. Is it possible to extend human lifespan even further, or reverse aging altogether?

In this initiative sponsored by Sergey Young, XPRIZE is studying the future of longevity to discover innovative and accessible ways to radically extend everyone's healthy lifespan.

High-Fidelity Visualization of Aging Outcomes

XPRIZEXPRIZE Los Angeles, CaliforniaPosts: 65 mod
Outcome

A service that would combine data from several different sources (e.g. MRI, lab tests, epigenetic age markers, habits questionnaire, activity tracking, etc.) to visualize projected aging outcomes for individuals.

Impact

Such a service would help accelerate drug development by showing the effects that certain drugs and other external factors would have on an individual’s aging process. The data collected could also aid in developing a more robust unified theory of aging, and to increase public awareness of the aging process. Finally, if the system were capable of providing people with real-time information about their health, it could help people become more aware of how they are biologically aging and encourage healthier lifestyle choices.

Relevant Technologies and Techniques
  • Sensors
  • Crowdsourcing (for funding and data collection)
  • Open source (for data sharing)
  • Personalization of treatments
  • Epigenetic mapping
  • DNA sequencing
