Page prefers to refer to the search giant's more out-there ventures as moon shots. At the moment Google is preparing an especially uncertain and distant shot. It is planning to launch Calico, a new company that will focus on health and aging in particular. "In some industries," says Page, who spoke exclusively with TIME about the new venture, "it takes 10 or 20 years to go from an idea to something being real. Health care is certainly one of those areas. We should shoot for the things that are really, really important, so 10 or 20 years from now we have those things done.

 

 

 

Fact is that since 2009 the visionary Ray Kurzweil is on the board of directors, he forecasted that he who survives the coming 20 years will life forever! Kurzweil is a laureate of many awards:

First place in the 1965 International Science Fair for inventing the classical music synthesizing computer.
The 1978 Grace Murray Hopper Award from the Association for Computing Machinery. The award is given annually to one "outstanding young computer professional" and is accompanied by a $35,000 prize. Kurzweil won it for his invention of the Kurzweil Reading Machine.
In 1986, Kurzweil was named Honorary Chairman for Innovation of the White House Conference on Small Business by President Reagan
In 1988, Kurzweil was named Inventor of the Year by MIT and the Boston Museum of Science.
In 1990, Kurzweil was voted Engineer of the Year by the over one million readers of Design News Magazine and received their third annual Technology Achievement Award
The 1994 Dickson Prize in Science. One is awarded every year by Carnegie Mellon University to individuals who have "notably advanced the field of science." Both a medal and a $50,000 prize are presented to winners.
The 1998 "Inventor of the Year" award from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The 1999 National Medal of Technology. This is the highest award the President of the United States can bestow upon individuals and groups for pioneering new technologies, and the President dispenses the award at his discretion. Bill Clinton presented Kurzweil with the National Medal of Technology during a White House ceremony in recognition of Kurzweil's development of computer-based technologies to help the disabled.
The 2000 Telluride Tech Festival Award of Technology. Two other individuals also received the same honor that year. The award is presented yearly to people who "exemplify the life, times and standard of contribution of Tesla, Westinghouse and Nunn."
The 2001 Lemelson-MIT Prize for a lifetime of developing technologies to help the disabled and to enrich the arts. Only one is meted out each year to highly successful, mid-career inventors. A $500,000 award accompanies the prize.
Kurzweil was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2002 for inventing the Kurzweil Reading Machine. The organization "honors the women and men responsible for the great technological advances that make human, social and economic progress possible." Fifteen other people were inducted into the Hall of Fame the same year.
The Arthur C. Clarke Lifetime Achievement Award on April 20, 2009 for lifetime achievement as an inventor and futurist in computer-based technologies.
In 2011, Kurzweil was named a Senior Fellow of the Design Futures Council.
In 2013, Kurzweil was honored as a Silicon Valley Visionary Award winner on June 26 by SVForum
In 2014, Kurzweil was honored with the American Visionary Art Museum’s Grand Visionary Award on January 30.
Kurzweil has received 20 honorary doctorates in science, engineering, music and humane letters from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Hofstra University and other leading colleges and universities, as well as honors from three U.S. presidents - Clinton, Reagan and Johnson.Kurzweil has received seven national and international film awards including the CINE Golden Eagle Award and the Gold Medal for Science Education from the International Film and TV Festival of New York.

Re: The Wild-Type Gene Pool is in Jeopardy!
That is so true As an author and business man, I can relate to how you said "There is of course the fear that biohackers produce intentionally or unintentionally a so lethal DNA source code, which threatens the good functioning of the whole evolutionary program".I hope more people discover your blog because you really know what you're talking about. Can't wait to read more from you!

Most of the people that read or publish in SATOCONOR Journals belong to one of two groups. Before I continue I say emphatically that this is a caricature:

• They that want to proof that Einstein was wrong!

• They that want to proof that Einstein was right!

But in every caricature or joke for that matter is a kernel of truth about the author. Moreover it takes one to recognize one. Or you best catch a thief with a thief, and so one. But seriously most authors are non-professionals, nontheless highly intelligent and creative people with a passion for science and mathematics. Although most of the time they are neglected by the scientific establishment. The Journal of Randomics is their loophole. However sometimes there is peer review collaboration with universities and scientific institutes. Moreover valuable SATOCONOR Journals articles are not neglected by Wikipedia page makers, passed the sci.math.research moderator and Sloane's Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences peer review.
