Will you live to 120 or 150 years old? Yes, and probably yes. If you could remove Alzheimer’s from your DNA, would you? Most of us say yes, and then quickly ask, “Is that really possible?” If you could upload your mind to the Cloud achieving neural immortality, would you? Learn about the innovations driving these questions and what they could mean to your quality of life. Learn how science and technology are quickly transforming our concept of lifespan into a quantifiable notion of healthspan. FutureXO is bringing together expert innovators, ethicists, and economists to discuss where we are today and speculate where we’re headed 10 and 20 years from now. We’ll have plenty of Q&A and breakout sessions to help you deepen your understanding
