I’m wondering if the shortest path to dramatically extending human longevity would be to employ AI to develop a gene therapy that would 10x our cognitive capacity.
A 10x cognitive gain is obviously a very lofty goal, but what happens when there is a therapy that initially offers a modest gain of 10%? Wouldn’t that expanded capacity have a profound effect of enhancing the development of all things being developed by SingularityNet?
Imagine that Ben G and the whole SingularityNet team increased their cognitive capacity by a factor of 10x (or even 10%). What if everyone involved in the Rejuve ecosystem also experienced those same cognitive gains?
What if all that enhanced capacity was then directed at the development of AGI and longevity… What would that mean to the progress of AGI and therefore life extension and wellbeing?
Why isn’t this a spinoff of SingularityNet, or at minimum, being developed in parallel within Rejuve?
For sure there are the philosophical questions about - if I am still “me” when I experience an enhancement of 10x of my cognitive capacity, but that is a separate conversation.
I’m optimistically assuming that anyone with deep altruistic inclinations aimed at creating AGI and/or extending human longevity would see new ways to enact such a disposition.
