Can we live forever?

Abstract:
"We'll really be able to repair at the cellular, molecular level anything that goes wrong before it manifests itself as a noticeable problem," Kurzweil explained.

And the third bridge: nanotechnology.

"Nanotechnology, where we can have, for example, little nanorobots in our blood stream that go inside and keep us healthy from the inside."

Scientists at Michigan Institute of Technology are testing a robot as small as a blood cell that can destroy cancer before it becomes a tumor. In 20 years, Kurzweil believes that this will be a reality. Right now, at least 50 experiments are already underway.

"We'll really be able to repair, at the cellular, molecular level, anything that goes wrong before it manifests itself as a noticeable problem," Kurzweil said.
