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.

Individualized Play to Motivate Better Health Outcomes

XPRIZEXPRIZE Los Angeles, CaliforniaPosts: 65 mod

By using technologies like virtual, augmented and holographic realities, together with gamification elements, users would be able to experience multiple potential futures for their bodies and minds, in a way that will motivate them to create a better future for themselves.


Many longevity treatments rely on a user’s motivation and adherence to the prescribed lifestyle, diet and/or activity. As many people lack the willpower to maintain healthy habits, a tool that could enhance intrinsic motivation to do so could have impressive effects on their healthspan . It could, for example, bring to many the benefits of caloric restriction and physical exercise, or at the very least - healthier and more balanced diets.

Relevant Technologies and Techniques
  • Sensors
  • 5G internet (for data sharing)
  • Crowdsourcing (for funding and data collection)
  • Open source (for data sharing)
  • Personalization of treatments
  • Gamification
  • Virtual reality
  • Holographic displays
  • Citizen science
  • Social robotics

    @DidierC, @dw2 and @Jerome, this is one of the breakthroughs that was developed at the lab. I would be interested to read your thoughts on it. Do you think it's audacious enough to potentially become an XPRIZE competition? How critical is it to achieving radical life extension?

    I think this one is lacking AI as a technology that will produce those images of people aged and etc. I can clearly see how generative models, such as GANs are plugging in here.

    @celinehh, @blreitze, @GlobalFuturist, @dr2tom, you may be interested in this ideas well.

    Do you think this would be enough of a breakthrough to achieve radical life extension?
