Insilico Medicine, one of the leaders in artificial intelligence for drug discovery, biomarker development, digital medicine, and aging research announced today the publication of its recent paper titled "Artificial Intelligence for Aging and Longevity Research: Recent Advances and Perspectives" in Ageing Research Reviews, one of the highest-impact journals in the field. The paper introduces recent advances in deep learning for aging research and provides fair insight into the field.

The emergence of the longevity biotechnology industry has brought many biotech and pharma companies and academic research institutions to the longevity landscape, and now one of the key trends accelerating the field is recent advances in artificial intelligence.

"We came up with several very important realizations. First, age is one of the most abundant biological features, and when your data looks like Swiss cheese, age is present. Second, Deep Learning (DL) age predictors are a great way to integrate previously incompatible data types, such as videos and blood test results.

Third, the generation of new biological data using Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs), with age as a generation condition, is a great way to produce high-quality synthetic data. Also, it is possible to view aging as a staged disease to get a holistic view of the biological process on both tissue-specific and systemic levels, which makes the Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) more interpretable, builds causal graphs, and identifies biological targets.

Moreover, it is possible to train the DNNs on age and retrain the model on specific diseases. Also, it is possible to use biological aging clocks to personalize immunotherapies and vaccinations and to identify new ways to improve response rates. The paper outlines these realizations and presents a way to accelerate aging research using AI technologies", said Alex Zhavoronkov, Ph.D., founder and CEO of Insilico Medicine, who led the study.
