Lately, I read on the main page that at 2065, science would be able to slow down aging with 12 months per year, and so making us live forever. It set me thinking and I made a model to predict the chance that I would live till than.
I assumed that this slowing down, what was 2 months a year already in 2010, linearly rose to the 12 in 2065. I also took in account the different survival ratios for each age, as they are found with statistics these days. This made me a pretty good model.
It showed me that my generation (born in 1993) had more than 97% chance of making it till then. Also my parents generation (born in 1962) would make it with 92% chance!
Probably, my model isn't quite right, but even with some margin, these numbers are astonishing high. Someone has any thoughts on this?
PS: For those who really want to know: I made the model with Ocatve. If you want the code, feel free to ask.
