AI alignment will become increasingly important as humanity strives to make sure that AI’s goals still align with its own.

Role of AI in Extending Lifespan
New era
Until the past few years, the project of reversing aging was not seen as “proper science,” and not a fit use for public funds. Aging was seen as an inevitable and permanent part of the human condition that cannot be redressed. But today there is significant investment in tackling aging and, recently, a potential game-changer has emerged thanks to the crypto currency community, which includes quite a few billionaires.
