Thanks- I got Data Analysis: A Bayesian Tutorial off of the Best Textbooks on Every Subject list. Have you read that one, or have an opinion/comparison between the two?

I don't think organizations are going to value life extension the same way an individual would. Even if a longevity treatment could be sold for a relatively large amount of money, if it works well then it can't be sold often. I could be wrong- life or medical insurance companies might encourage the insured to regularly take any available life extension treatment and happily pay for it as a way to avoid more expensive illnesses later.

Become comparably intelligent, maybe? The problem with AI isn't really an issue with AI but with the power disparity.
