Aging, according to Beloussov, is the worst disease in the world.
“We’re all sick with aging,” he says. By accelerating drug discovery and enhancing healthcare delivery though, he believes, machine intelligence is on the cusp of putting aging into remission.
“I think in the next 25 years or 50 years people will start living to hundreds of years,” Beloussov predicts.
Good thing too, because the shortage of talented people so many employers are coping with right now isn’t a short-term phenomenon. “The fight for talent is just starting,” Beloussov says, paraphrasing a Nobel laureate friend of his.
“The last 10,000 years, humans were fighting for resources, for land, for minerals, and so on and so forth. The last 100 years, people were fighting for technology. In the future, people will fight for talent,” he predicts.
And not just any talent. “The fact of the matter is all this technology which we invent today requires humans to use it and requires talented humans to manage it,” Beloussov notes. “So there will be more fight for talent, and it’s quite clear that in the global IT market there’s not enough people.”
