Chip Walter - Immortality, Inc.: Renegade Science, Silicon Valley Billions, and the Quest to Live Forever — in conversation with Hilary Black

Upcoming Event
Saturday, January 11, 2020 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

Living forever has always been a dream, but with today’s science, technology, and visionary billionaires, it may be a distinct possibility. At the very least, as Walter reports in this compelling investigation, immortality researchers are changing the way we view aging and death. Looking at the science, business, and culture of this radical endeavor, Walter, a science journalist, author of Last Ape Standing, and former CNN bureau chief, lays out the latest research into stem cell rejuvenation, advanced genomics, and artificial intelligence; talks to key thinkers such as Ray Kurzweil and Aubrey de Grey; and takes us into the Silicon Valley labs of human genomics trailblazer Craig Venter and molecular biologist and Apple chairman Arthur Levinson. Walter will be in conversation with Hilary Black, executive editor at National Geographic Books.
