The Current State of Longevity Science: www.linkedin.com/pulse/current-state-longevity-science-margaretta-colangelo/

The fourth article in the Official Linkedin Weekly Longevity Industry Newsletter is now available. This week, Aging Analytics Agency co-founders Dmitry Kaminskiy and Margaretta Colangelo cover the Current State of Longevity Science, and discuss in detail how Artificial Intelligence will accelerate real-world implementations of Longevity Science, enabling a paradigm shift from Precision Medicine to Precision Health.

"The next significant hurdle in the advancement of the Longevity Industry is digital integration, and in the next few years the enhanced precision this provides will create a paradigm shift and open the doors to a wide array of R&D applications. This enhanced precision will be grounded in panels of actionable biomarkers of aging obtained partly via digital wearable devices. This will enable the rapid assessment of the efficiency of treatments, and the equally rapid identification of the appropriate prevention and restoration of those age-associated changes. To put it simply: The core of Longevity Science will be Biomarkers and AI-Technology."

Message from Gennady Stolyarov II, Chairman of the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party: My second interview with Steele Archer on his Debt Nation program highlights recent developments within the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party (USTP), including the publication of the master compendium of contemporary transhumanist thought – “The Transhumanist Handbook”, edited by California Transhumanist Party Chairman Newton Lee, my July 16 interview with Jim Strole of the Coalition for Radical Life Extension, a detailed overview of the free and easy membership registration process for the USTP, the possibilities of Allied Membership, the benefits of membership, and some general thoughts on the USTP Presidential Primary process thus far. I remain neutral in regard to the candidates, but we do discuss some of the candidates’ distinguishing aspects toward the end.

Message from Gennady Stolyarov II, Chairman, United States Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party: For those interested in my thoughts on the connections among music, technology, algorithms, artificial intelligence, transhumanism, and the philosophical motivations behind my own compositions, I have had a peer-reviewed paper, “Empowering Human Musical Creation through Machines, Algorithms, and Artificial Intelligence”, published in Issue 2 of the INSAM Journal of Contemporary Music, Art, and Technology. This is a rigorous academic publication but also freely available and sharable via a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license - just as academic works ought to be - so I was honored by the opportunity to contribute my writing. My essay features discussions of Plato and Aristotle, Kirnberger's and Mozart's musical dice games, the AI-generated compositions of Ray Kurzweil and David Cope, and the recently completed "Unfinished" Symphony of Franz Schubert, whose second half was made possible by the Huawei / Lucas Cantor, AI / human collaboration. Even Conlon Nancarrow, John Cage, Iannis Xenakis, and Karlheinz Stockhausen make appearances in this paper. Look in the bibliography for YouTube and downloadable MP3 links to all of my compositions that I discuss, as this paper is intended to be a multimedia experience.

Music, technology, and transhumanism - all in close proximity in the same paper and pointing the way toward the vast proliferation of creative possibilities in the future as the distance between the creator's conception of a musical idea and its implementation becomes ever shorter.

Read the paper here: transhumanist-party.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Stolyarov_Empowering_Musical_Creation.pdf

“Top-30 Longevity Conferences 2019-2020” is a 60-page open-access analytical report by Aging Analytics Agency that uses cost-benefit analysis to identify the Top-30 Longevity Conferences globally taking place in 2019-2020, including detailed analysis and infographics on their regional distribution, cost, and focus.

Link to the Report: www.aginganalytics.com/longevity-conferences

The report is complemented by a comprehensive online Longevity Conferences IT-Platform that contains data on 150 Longevity-related conferences taking place in 2019-2020.

With the rapid development of the Longevity industry in recent years, the number of events dedicated to this topic has increased proportionately. These events differ from one another in a number of ways including target audience, scope of featured topics, entrance fee range, region and venue, etc. Potential participants need to be aware of such details while planning which conferences to attend, and this report seeks to serve as a guide for this kind of decision making.

The report also highlights a number of previous conferences held by top-tier finance and business media brands like The Economist, Financial Times, Bloomberg and others, as well as prominent financial institutions and investment banks, that helped establish Longevity as the mainstream topic for major financial and healthcare conferences that it is today.

Message from Gennady Stolyarov II, Chairman of the United States Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party: At long last, my essay “The United States Transhumanist Party and the Politics of Abundance” is available in the newly published master compilation, The Transhumanism Handbook, edited by Newton Lee, the California Transhumanist Party Chairman and U.S. Transhumanist Party Education and Media Advisor. This book is a milestone publication in transhumanist thought, and I encourage everyone to purchase it and read it in full. Fortunately, I am able to share my own chapter – 60 pages within the book – for free download here: transhumanist-party.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Stolyarov_USTP_Politics_of_Abundance.pdf.

Read “The United States Transhumanist Party and the Politics of Abundance” for a detailed explanation of the premises behind transhumanist politics and what the U.S. Transhumanist Party stands for. This essay is current through year-end 2018, and various other significant developments have occurred since then. However, it should give you a strong impression of the USTP’s values, operating procedures, areas of focus, and aspirations for the future.

Abstract: “The depredations of contemporary politics and the majority of our era’s societal problems stem from the scarcity of material resources and time. However, numerous emerging technologies on the horizon promise to dramatically lift the present-day constraints of scarcity. The United States Transhumanist Party, in advocating the accelerated development of these technologies and seeking to influence public opinion to embrace them, is forging a new political paradigm rooted in abundance, rather than scarcity. This new approach is simultaneously more ambitious and more civil than the status quo. Here I illustrate the distinguishing features of the Transhumanist Party’s mode of operation, achievements, and plans for the future.”

We once again have openings for two volunteer Officer positions in the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party. We have a small but dedicated Officer team whose multiplicity of talents have enabled the USTP to achieve on a level far beyond what our size might suggest. Those interested in joining us should e-mail Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II at gennadystolyarovii@gmail.com.

DIRECTOR OF VISUAL ART - transhumanist-party.org/leadership/#DirectorOfVisualArt: The Director of Visual Art position would be suited for an artist, graphic designer, art scholar, and/or curator who has a strong interest in technological progress and the improvement of the human condition. This position would be responsible for locating techno-positive, transhumanist-themed art, working with the artists to publicize it on the U.S. Transhumanist Party website and social media, developing or locating graphic-design resources for the Transhumanist Party to use in spreading its message (e.g., infographics, posters, covers, memes) and generally helping us cultivate a techno-positive, futuristic, and refined esthetic that inspires public interest and serves to motivate humankind’s ascent toward the next great era of our civilization.

The Director of Visual Art will also have the opportunity to promote his or her work on the U.S. Transhumanist Party website and social-media pages, achieving exposure to a growing and sympathetic audience.

CAMPAIGN DIRECTOR - transhumanist-party.org/leadership/#CampaignDirector: The Campaign Director’s primary role would be to interface with candidates seeking the endorsement of the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party during the 2019 Presidential Primary and the 2020 Election Season. This would include facilitating discussions and debates among candidates, assisting with outreach to the general public, and communicating the USTP’s principles and expectations to candidates who seek the USTP’s endorsement.

This liaison role is not limited to potential Presidential candidates and would extend to candidates for other federal, state, and local offices. The Campaign Director would also periodically search for and identify independent and/or nonpartisan candidates whose platforms and priorities sufficiently align with the U.S. Transhumanist Party Platform that an endorsement by the USTP might be possible. For candidates who are ultimately endorsed by the USTP, the Campaign Director will assist with spreading those candidates’ messages and ideas via social media and other channels of communication.

Dr. Nichola Conlon, Nuchido CEO & Co-founder, recently spoke with James Strole, Director of the Coalition for Radical Life Extension, about her team’s work in achieving the biggest increase of NAD in humans reported by any scientific group. The U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party brings you this update from our allies at the Coalition for Radical Life Extension, who are organizing RAAD Fest 2019 in Las Vegas (to take place on October 3-6).

Watch the video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bh8hbXZS63g

NAD is a natural molecule found within every living cell of your body. Without it, your body couldn’t generate the energy it needs to survive or kick-start its natural cell maintenance and repair systems. In its youthful state, your body naturally makes and retains high levels of NAD. But as you age, these levels are not maintained and the amount of NAD in your body drops by 50% every 20 years. This decline has been scientifically linked to the increasing effects of aging.

The video containing 73 minutes of excerpts from the Cyborg and Transhumanist Forum at the Nevada State Legislature has been released at www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOHA5Z6Z3O4.

The Cyborg and Transhumanist Forum at the Nevada Legislature on May 15, 2019, marked a milestone for the U.S. Transhumanist Party and the Nevada Transhumanist Party. This was the first time that an official transhumanist event was held within the halls of a State Legislature, in one of the busiest areas of the building, within sight of the rooms where legislative committees met. The presenters were approached by tens of individuals – a few legislators and many lobbyists and staff members. The reaction was predominantly either positive or at least curious; there was no hostility and only mild disagreement from a few individuals. Generally, the outlook within the Legislative Building seems to be in favor of individual autonomy to pursue truly voluntary microchip implants. The testimony of Anastasia Synn at the Senate Judiciary Committee on April 26, 2019, in opposition to Assembly Bill 226 - www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXGessk5c24 - is one of the most memorable episodes of the 2019 Legislative Session for many who heard it. It has certainly affected the outcome for Assembly Bill 226, which was subsequently further amended to restore the original scope of the bill and only apply the prohibition to coercive microchip implants, while specifically exempting microchip implants voluntarily received by an individual from the prohibition. The scope of the prohibition was also narrowed by removing the reference to “any other person” and applying the prohibition to an enumerated list of entities who may not require others to be microchipped: state officers and employees, employers as a condition of employment, and persons in the business of insurance or bail. These changes alleviated the vast majority of the concerns within the transhumanist and cyborg communities about Assembly Bill 226.

This Cyborg and Transhumanist Forum comes at the beginning of an era of transhumanist political engagement with policymakers and those who advise them. It was widely accepted by the visitors to the demonstration tables that technological advances are accelerating, and that policy decisions regarding technology should only be made with adequate knowledge about the technology itself – working on the basis of facts and not fears or misconceptions that arise from popular culture and dystopian fiction. Ryan Starr shared his expertise on the workings and limitations of both NFC/RFID microchips and GPS technology and who explained that cell phones are already far more trackable than microchips ever could be (based on their technical specifications and how those specifications could potentially be improved in the future). U.S. Transhumanist Party Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II introduced visitors to the world of transhumanist literature by bringing books for display – including writings by Aubrey de Grey, Bill Andrews, Ray Kurzweil, Jose Cordeiro, Ben Goertzel, Phil Bowermaster, and Mr. Stolyarov's own book “Death is Wrong” in five languages. It appears that there is more sympathy for transhumanism within contemporary political circles than might appear at first glance; it is often transhumanists themselves who overestimate the negativity of the reaction they expect to receive. But nobody picketed the event or even called the presenters names; transhumanist ideas, expressed in a civil and engaging way – with an emphasis on practical applications that are here today or due to arrive in the near future – will be taken seriously when there is an opening to articulate them.

Update from Gennady Stolyarov II, Chairman of the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party:

The Cyborg and Transhumanist Forum at the Nevada Legislature on May 15, 2019, marked a milestone for the U.S. Transhumanist Party and the Nevada Transhumanist Party. This was the first time that an official transhumanist event was held within the halls of a State Legislature, in one of the busiest areas of the building, within sight of the rooms where legislative committees met. We were approached by tens of individuals – a few legislators and many lobbyists and staff members. The reaction was predominantly either positive or at least curious; we received no hostility and only mild disagreement from a few individuals. Generally, the outlook within the Legislative Building seems to be in favor of individual autonomy to pursue truly voluntary microchip implants. The testimony of Anastasia Synn at the Senate Judiciary Committee on April 26, 2019, in opposition to Assembly Bill 226, is one of the most memorable episodes of the 2019 Legislative Session for many who heard it. It has certainly affected the likely outcome for this bill, which is scheduled for a Senate Judiciary Committee Work Session the next morning, on May 16, 2019. At the Work Session, if the bill advances at all, there is expected to be an amendment which would restore the original scope of the bill and only apply the prohibition to coercive microchip implants, while specifically exempting microchip implants voluntarily received by an individual from the prohibition. The scope of the prohibition would also be narrowed by removing the reference to “any other person” and applying the prohibition to an enumerated list of entities who may not require others to be microchipped: state officers and employees, employers as a condition of employment, and persons in the business of insurance or bail. If such an amendment is indeed adopted, it would alleviate the vast majority of our concerns about Assembly Bill 226.

This Cyborg and Transhumanist Forum comes at the beginning of an era of transhumanist political engagement with policymakers and those who advise them. It was widely accepted by the visitors to our tables that technological advances are accelerating, and that policy decisions regarding technology should only be made with adequate knowledge about the technology itself – working on the basis of facts and not fears or misconceptions that arise from popular culture and dystopian fiction. This is one reason why we were pleased to have Ryan Starr, who shared his expertise on the workings and limitations of both NFC/RFID microchips and GPS technology and who explained that cell phones are already far more trackable than microchips ever could be (based on their technical specifications and how those specifications could potentially be improved in the future). I was also glad to be able to introduce visitors to the world of transhumanist literature by bringing some of my home library of books for display – including writings by Aubrey de Grey, Bill Andrews, Ray Kurzweil, Jose Cordeiro, Ben Goertzel, Phil Bowermaster, and myself. Having “Death is Wrong” in five languages made an impression on multiple visitors, and the book is now in the hands of several prominent individuals, including Senator Melanie Scheible. One Legislature staff member came back to the Transhumanist Party table after reading the book (several hours after obtaining it) to tell me how impressed she was with it – offering high praise for the writing and the ideas therein; she will be sharing it with her college-aged grandchildren. This made my day. More generally, it is my impression that there is more sympathy for transhumanism within contemporary political circles than might appear at first glance; it is often transhumanists themselves who overestimate the negativity of the reaction they expect to receive. But nobody picketed us or even called us names; transhumanist ideas, expressed in a civil and engaging way – with an emphasis on practical applications that are here today or due to arrive in the near future – will be taken seriously when there is an opening to articulate them.

I did record a decent amount of video and audio footage. It will take some time to compile it into a single video showing some of the highlights of this event, but expect such a video in approximately a week's time.

If you are interested in transhumanism, life extension, biohacking, prosthetics, implantable technologies, advances to help the disabled, and the political and philosophical implications of all of these areas, please come to the Cyborg and Transhumanist Forum at the Nevada State Legislature in Carson City, Nevada, on Wednesday, May 15, 2019. This promises to be the first event of its kind – a great opportunity for advocates of emerging technologies to communicate with legislators, lobbyists, media, and the general public, and educate them about transhumanism and its technological dimensions while also dispelling common fears and myths.

The Cyborg and Transhumanist Forum will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 15.

Address:
Nevada State Legislature Building
401 S Carson St, Carson City, NV 89701
Second Floor Atrium (See the Second Floor Map at www.leg.state.nv.us/General/AboutLeg/Maps/Legislative_Building_2nd_Floor.pdf)

This event was organized at the invitation of Senator Melanie Scheible, who was impressed with the testimony of magician Anastasia Synn in opposition to Assembly Bill 226: www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXGessk5c24

Most of the event will be in a conversational format as participants will interact with visitors and answer their questions.

If you could either travel to Carson City, Nevada, on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, or share this event with other transhumanists and life-extensionists who you think might be able to do so, it would be greatly appreciated. Even if you cannot attend yourself, you can help by spreading information about this event to others who might be in a position to attend – especially if they live in Northern Nevada or Northern California (but we welcome others who would have to travel farther!).

We need more transhumanists in attendance at this event! Please send an e mail to gennadystolyarovii@gmail.com if you wish to participate as one of the speakers educating people about transhumanism and emerging technologies. The more representation we have, the better! No matter what your areas of expertise or what flavor of transhumanism you espouse – whether you seek to pursue biological life extension, mechanical/electronic augmentations, policy reforms, or all of the above – your involvement and perspectives will be welcome. This is a unique opportunity for us to access policymakers and render them aware of the imperative of protecting the rights of technological innovators and creating an environment conducive to an acceleration of beneficial technological progress.

Transhumanist activism takes center stage at the Nevada Legislature: Magician and transhumanist Anastasia Synn testified on April 26, 2019, before the Nevada Senate Judiciary Committee in opposition to Nevada Assembly Bill 226 (AB 226). AB 226 would prohibit most implantation of NFC/RFID microchips, including voluntary programs for such implantation.

Ms. Synn demonstrated a variety of microchip technologies and their beneficial uses, as well as the difficulties in using voluntary implants to actually infringe on an individual's privacy. Watch her testimony here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXGessk5c24

The U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party (USTP) initially raised awareness about AB 226 and its detrimental impacts in March 2019, via this article by R. Nicholas Starr: transhumanist-party.org/2019/03/14/bait-and-switch-on-nevada-ab226/

The USTP, through Legislative Director Justin Waters, submitted a letter in opposition to AB 226 - tinyurl.com/y6q4em8y - and encouraged others to submit public comments on the bill at the Nevada Legislature website: www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Opinions/80th2019/

Anastasia Synn answered the USTP's call for vocal, articulate opposition to AB 226 and testified in person at the Senate Judiciary Committee in a manner that greatly impressed the Legislators and opened them to a new world of technology.

The USTP encourages our members to continue to express their concerns on AB 226 by writing the Senate Judiciary Committee at www.leg.state.nv.us/App/NELIS/REL/80th2019/Committee/222/Overview and Assemblyman Richard "Skip" Daly, the sponsor of AB 226, at www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Legislator/A/Assembly/80th2019/31.

Transhumanist legislative activism has made a difference; let us work to enable it to continue to do so.

U.S. Transhumanist Party

Excellent work by Justin Waters, the Legislative Director of the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party in writing and sending this letter to the Nevada Senate Judiciary Committee, in opposition to Assembly Bill 226 (AB226), which is scheduled to be heard this Friday, April 26, 2019, at 8 a.m.

AB226 had been amended with the following text (after technical drafting by the Legislative Counsel Bureau):
www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/80th2019/Bills/Amendments/A_AB226_46.pdf

Unfortunately, the revised amended bill - www.leg.state.nv.us/App/NELIS/REL/80th2019/Bill/6394/Text - is not as innocuous as we hoped the conceptual amendment would be when it passed out of the Assembly Judiciary Committee. In particular, the definition of “Microchip” no longer has the qualifier of being intended to serve as an identification marker and instead refers to a device “that is passively or actively capable of transmitting personal information to another device using radio frequency technology.” Without the reference to the intent to be used as an identification marker, the scope of prohibited devices unfortunately could increase significantly.

We encourage our members to express their concerns.

Here is the link to the contact information for the committee:
www.leg.state.nv.us/App/NELIS/REL/80th2019/Committee/222/Overview

Also, public comments on the bill can still be made at the Nevada Legislature website:
www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Opinions/80th2019/

Existing comments can be viewed at www.leg.state.nv.us/AppCF/Opinion/80th2019/vwComments.cfm by typing in “AB226” as the bill name.

We also encourage those of our members who can make it in person to either Carson City or Las Vegas to testify in opposition to AB226 this Friday morning.

And if you are not yet a member of the USTP, join us for free, given the importance of legislative activism efforts such as this: transhumanist-party.org/membership/.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF OPEN OFFICER POSITIONS: The U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party has four volunteer Officer openings. We expect 2019 to be a pivotal year for the USTP, but we need additional committed volunteers to implement the kinds of projects that will advance the transhumanist movement’s political impact to the next level.

To apply, please e-mail Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II at gennadystolyarovii@gmail.com. Specify the position(s) you are applying for, and provide a statement of your qualifications and the reasons for your interest in any given position. Please feel free to provide supporting materials, such as links to past relevant work.

Opening for Secretary: The position of Secretary is responsible for transportation and logistics associated with USTP events, as well as miscellaneous tasks, as may be requested by the Chairman. If the applicant resides in Nevada, the applicant will also have an option to simultaneously become the Secretary of the Nevada Transhumanist Party, which may involve making occasional filings of documentation in person with the Nevada Secretary of State’s Office in Carson City. It is furthermore encouraged for the Secretary, like all the other Officers, to spread awareness of the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party on social media and in person, to encourage new members to join, and to source content for the USTP website. Basic web editing skills, using platforms such as WordPress, are desirable but would also be taught to an otherwise qualified applicant. The specific expectations of the Secretary position are flexible, evolving, and may be custom-tailored to the strengths and skill sets of the applicant. However, to qualify for the position, it is absolutely essential for the applicant to be a person of consistent, reliable, trustworthy character, with a strong work ethic, communication skills, and the ability to follow through on commitments.

NOTE: The Secretary is not intended to be a second-in-command. By design, the USTP has no hierarchy of Officers; rather, all titles other than Chairman are horizontal and co-equal.

***

Opening for Director of Publication: The Director of Publication would source content from Allied Organizations and publish it regularly on the U.S. Transhumanist Party website pursuant to ongoing understandings with those organizations. We wish to develop our website into a hub for information regarding cutting-edge research, projects, and activism opportunities. The Director of Publication would be responsible for keeping up with what our Allied Organizations release and republishing materials where we have a right to do so and in a manner that aligns with our Platform and objectives. This would also be an opportunity for the Director of Publication to write and publish his or her own content with transhumanist and/or life-extensionist themes.

***

Opening for Legislative Director: The Legislative Director would be responsible for implementing the Legislative Action Framework of the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party, as described in the following article: transhumanist-party.org/2019/03/17/legislative-action-framework/. The Legislative Director would recruit and coordinate with volunteer Issue Analysts to regularly track pending legislation that affects the issues and principles expressed in the U.S. Transhumanist Party Platform, the Transhumanist Bill of Rights, Version 3.0, and the Core Ideals of the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party.

The Legislative Director would ideally have a background in law/policy making. It would be the responsibility of the Legislative Director to inform the Chairman of all relevant legislation on state and federal levels as provided by analysts or through personal observation. It would also be the Legislative Director’s responsibility to identify national policy trends and make suggestions for yearly priorities. The Legislative Director should, when necessary, reach out to our expert Advisors as listed on the USTP Advisors page.

***

Opening for Campaign Director: The Campaign Director’s primary role would be to interface with candidates seeking the endorsement of the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party during the 2019 Presidential Primary and the 2020 Election Season. This would include facilitating discussions and debates among candidates, assisting with outreach to the general public, and communicating the USTP’s principles and expectations to candidates who seek the USTP’s endorsement.

This liaison role is not limited to potential Presidential candidates and would extend to candidates for other federal, state, and local offices. The Campaign Director would also periodically search for and identify independent and/or nonpartisan candidates whose platforms and priorities sufficiently align with the U.S. Transhumanist Party Platform that an endorsement by the USTP might be possible. For candidates who are ultimately endorsed by the USTP, the Campaign Director will assist with spreading those candidates’ messages and ideas via social media and other channels of communication.
