Meet Altos Labs, Silicon Valley’s latest wild bet on living forever
De-ageing might be a real possibility - if you're a billionaire. Whereas many take growing old and death as life givens, some Big Tech moguls like to think differently. Altos Lab, a startup based in California specialising in 'rejuvenation', is said to include Jeff Bezos and Yuri Milner among its founders. But, are we looking into a utopian plot reserved only for the wealthy or life-changing technology with the potential to do some good? This is what Antonio Regalado is trying to find out. In this piece, he analyses the conception of Altos and takes a deep dive into what its hires over the year imply about their scientific and economic intentions.
