Progress in achieving longevity.
FUTUROLOGICAL FORECAST FROM 2015 TO 2080
The era of genomics and transcriptomics. Completion of the "Project 100 000 genomes"2015-2020
- The National Service of England launched the “100,000 Genome Project” worth £ 300 million ($ 467 million) to identify common genetic changes in cancer and hereditary diseases from 2015 to 2018;
- The first attempts to edit the human genome to extend healthy longevity;
- Melanoma vaccines.
The progress of regenerative medicine technology2021-2025
By 2025, after animal testing, individual 3D-printing of the main human organs becomes possible for the first time. Although the 3D printer hasn’t been completely improved (since certain types of organs remain too complex) yet. This is nonetheless a significant advance in life extension. In the coming decades, more and more organs of the human body will become printable.
Using nanotechnology, an artificial kidney can imitate almost all of the vital functions of the kidney, while the bioreactor performs other functions of the kidney.
- Bionic eyes with high resolution are commercially available;
- Five-year survival for Hodgkin's lymphoma approaches 100%;

- Rejuvenating regeneration of aging cardiac muscle becomes possible;
- Mechanical hand with human capabilities.
Human Synthetic Genome Completed2026
By 2026, most people making predictions on this site will have their genomes sequenced. Also by 2026 the very first person will be cloned, and this event will be accepted by most people.
- One billion human genomes sequenced;
- Created 3D-printed electronic membranes to prevent heart attacks;
- Creation of genetic maps. Collection of all omics population data. More complete decoding of the genome and transcriptome;
- Human cloning.
By 2027, exponential data growth allowed us to form accurate models of each part of the human brain and its 100 billion neurons.
In the period from 2000 to 2027, the computing power increased by a million times, and the resolution and throughput of the scan significantly improved.
The progress of information technology has led to significant improvements in computing power, memory, bandwidth, voice recognition, image recognition, deep learning and other software algorithms. By the end of the 2020s, it had reached a stage when an independent judge literally could not tell who was a real person and who was not.
- Modeling the human brain becomes possible;
- New artificial neural networks are being created;
- Robotic hands with human abilities;
- Artificial intelligence becomes reality;
- By 2030, all surgical anesthesia will be performed and monitored by computers without the need for professional medical monitoring of the surgeon;
- The number of service robots worldwide is one billion.
The victory over the main diseases of mankind2031-2040
The ability to fight Alzheimer's disease is one of the success stories of the 2030s. This happens at a time when the rates of dementia are growing rapidly, with the number of cases projected to increase fourfold in four decades from 2010 to 2050.
Leukemia is a cancer of the blood or bone marrow, characterized by an abnormal increase in the number of immature leukocytes, called "blasts." Gene therapy was one of the most successful new approaches. One of these methods turned the patient's own T-cells into attackers targeting cancer. In one study conducted between 2010 and 2011, two out of three patients remained cancer-free a year later. By 2039, the five-year survival rate in many countries reaches 100%.
- Hepatitis C has become a rare disease in the United States;
- “Tube” meat is a fast-growing industry;
- Alzheimer's disease is completely treatable;
- Eye chips replace human vision;
- AIDS, cancer and a number of other diseases are now treatable;
- Five-year leukemia survival rate approaches 100%;
- Biorepositories and genomic information systems transform health care;
- Life expectancy with cystic fibrosis reaches 70;
- Five-year survival for bowel cancer approaches 100%.
The ability to manipulate DNA has come a long way since its discovery in 1953. After a century, rich parents now have the opportunity to create "ideal" children in the laboratory. This is done by selecting the best hereditary traits. Gender, height, color of skin, hair and eyes - along with hundreds of other characteristics - can be programmed in the embryo before birth. Then the germ is grown in an artificial womb. The most advanced (and controversial) methods include manipulating the brain to improve the child’s intelligence, behavior, and personality. Many conservative and religious groups condemn what they consider to be the commercialization of the human body.
- Nanofabricators are the main consumer product;
- Genetically engineered “designer babies” for the rich;
- Nanotechnology body. Nanotechnologies will be able to create food and any objects of the physical world literally from the air.;
- People extend healthy longevity for several decades, later retire and later start a family;
- Creation of new biomaterials, development of nano-leather to protect the body from the environment;
- Hand-held MRI scanners.
New era of human capabilities.
The interaction of human intelligence with robots
At the consumer level, gaming devices now provide fantastically realistic experiences. Full immersion in virtual reality is currently the main phenomenon after rapid development in the last two decades. Advances in procedural generation have led to the creation of matrix worlds of exciting proportions and ingenuity. In cyberspace, whole new societies have formed, in which many people spend their entire leisure time. If you encounter a player or character online, it’s almost impossible to distinguish between a person and artificial intelligence.
- Virtual space becomes indistinguishable from real;
- Australia becomes the first country to eradicate cervical cancer;
- Creating fully synthetic people becomes technically possible;
- The human brain can be modeled in real time;
- Human intelligence is greatly enhanced by artificial.
Radical life extension achieved2061-2070
By the middle of this decade, drugs that can effectively stop aging are becoming available to the general population. Currently, various combinations of treatments are available that can stop the aging process at a fairly low cost for the average person. It deeply changes society and culture.
- Individual anti-aging therapy based on human omics data;
- Drugs and treatments that increase longevity and are able to stop aging are becoming available;
- Five-year survival for liver cancer approaches 100%;
- Five-year survival rate for brain tumors reaches 100%.
Lack of disease. More than 150 years increase in life expectancy2071-2079
More than 150 years increase in life expectancy. The victory over the main causes of death.
- Managing the genome to regenerate;
- Increasing the vitality of the body;
- The acquisition of new functions.
Nanotechnology of recent decades has given citizens powers that are considered superhuman by 21st century standards. These modernized transhumans can now perform actions that were considered divine in the past. They can transform their bodies into an endless variety of forms, depending on the situation. The overwhelming majority of citizens have chosen genetic engineering and biotechnology modernization, which offer practical immortality.
- New superman;
- The first realization of physical immortality: nanorobots help to overcome apoptosis and protect the body from any negative effects;
- Modernization of a new person.
