Bryan Johnson is founder & CEO of Kernel, creator of the world’s first mainstream non-invasive neuroimaging system; OS Fund, where he invested $100M in the predictable engineering of atoms, molecules, and organisms into companies now collectively valued over $6B; and Blueprint, an endeavor to achieve humanity and earth scale cooperation starting within Self.
Bryan Johnson and Allison Duettmann discuss Kernel, BluePrint, and the Rejuvenation Olympics. Bryan shares the connection between the projects, the principles that made BluePrint a success for him, surprising findings he encountered, why it’s vegan, and how to do an MVP version of the program. They discuss how Bryan is planning on scaling rejuvenation efforts via the rejuvenation olympics, and how both BluePrint, and the Rejuvenation Olympics fit into his larger plan of updating humanity via self reflection, evolving ourselves, new economic incentives, embracing AI, a global immune system, working on hard problems, and updating our belief systems. The seminar finishes with an audience Q&A.
