Google Aims to Extend Human Life Span
Google has taken bold initiatives including self-driving cars and Google Glass. The progress of the company does not stop there but they aim to enhance lives even further at a consistent pace. Google has launched a new company named as ‘Calico’ which aims to extend human life span. This Google initiative was announced in a Time’s cover story. Calico will be run by Arthur Levinson (former CEO of Genentech, an investor and the chairman of Apple). This is a long term project as Larry Page said that it normally takes ten to 20 years to go from an idea to something being real.
Tim Cook has also praised the idea immensely and said that too many of our friends and family, life has been cut short or the quality of life is lacking too often. It does not have to be this way and he is excited to see the results.
This means that Google has already started experimenting with this project. You have to take a start from somewhere, obviously. So we can hope that we will be able to peak on this project in couple of years.
Looking at the domain named as ‘Calico.com’, it is owned by Oracle Corporation. We are not sure whether this domain will host the Google Calico project or any other but we can hope so because right now lookup for that domain has been denied by host due to ‘maximum daily connection limit’ being reached. Obviously, everybody is curious about how Google will improve human life span.
Notably Google just does not want to increase the life span but they will have to reduce aging process as well. Few sources confirm that Google Calico will also reduce aging process, somehow to achieve improved, healthy and a bit more long life. This is really exciting news for us and we can not wait to see the development and results of the project.
So, why Google? Can you think of any better company to host this project?
