Illustrating the strong connection between the general artificial intelligence community and healthy life extension community, the owners of Novamente have donated 1% of their company in support of meaningful longevity research: "Currently in stealth mode, San Francisco-based Novamente is working on revolutionary Artificial Intelligence products. The Methuselah Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to accelerating the development of foreseeable, science-based therapies to combat aging. ... We are grateful to Novamente for its generous donation, the first we hope of many that will follow as part of the Methuselah Foundation's newly launched '1% for Life' program, for far-sighted corporations that want to support the rapidly accelerating efforts to find solutions to the debilities caused by aging. ... Since both Novamente and the Methuselah Foundation are operating at the leading edge of scientific progress, we at Novamente appreciate the enormous benefits that progress in Artificial Intelligence and Life Extension will confer on humanity. We consider our donation a wise investment in a brighter future for us all."
