Ask A Genius 229 – The Boomers and Xers

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

July 15, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: And then what comes after boomers, gen-x or I guess.  Well, anyway people born from 1965 to 1980.  And, those people will really, really benefit on a wide scale from extreme life extension.  Where people born between ’65 and ’80 may be looking at 40 or 50 years or more of extended life beyond the average like 75, you are going to get a bunch of people in the 1965 to 1980 cohort living to at least 120 and possibly 140/150.

But that takes us to into the 2080’s and beyond.  By the 2080’s we are well passed, if you believe in the singularity, which I think you shouldn’t entirely.  The strong singularity believers believe that by 2040 that all questions will be answered thanks to AI.
