young.ai

The site https://young.ai from Insilico purports to tell you what you are doing (exercise, supplements, lifestyle etc) that helps, and what is aging you. Anybody try it?

    This morning I'm going through and adding my data. They have another predictor here, for blood results they actually support Life Extension lab PDF files, just upload and they scan and automatically pull out the data. Nifty ... and interestingly this gives a different number when uploading the last Male Elite panel I did - 35. So so far I've got 40 (Levine method), 28 (aging.ai v3) and 35 ( young.ai ).

     

    Note that on the blood tests there's three sections, the first (with the auto scanning of PDF's) is for common blood work. There's a second tab for inflammation. The third tab tells you how your values are doing relative to where they should be. 

     

    They also have a section on a new test I'm not familiar with, the 'transcriptome' which measures your DNA expression. I've not seen where you can get a test for this, any pointers?

     

    Generally very impressed with this app, it's telling me some things about myself I've not seen elsewhere.

      Thank you for sharing. I would have played with young.ai too if as EU resident I was also able to use it but I am not allowed, likely for some regulatory issues. I think the advantage of young.ai is to provide a nice tracking tool and possibly an integration of other than blood biomarkers.

      For tracking I would also consider plotting aging.ai results along time.

      albedo That's easy - use a VPN to alter your IP address. Private Internet Access is a excellent cheap one I use. Then connect to a server in the U.S. and voila, welcome to North America (as far as youth.ai is concerned). If you have any other issues use privacy mode on your browser, it's possible (but unlikely) they are picking through some cookies.

      Note on this service, I haven't checked the privacy settings, presumably they don't conform to HIPPA (U.S. medical data privacy regs), but for me the value of the service is above companies learning about my (excellent) health, anonymously or not. The EU is quite picky about data privacy, I deal with that in my work too, usually the privacy requirements are too onerous to be worth bothering with the region (unless there's a lot of money in it). The flip side of regulation and privacy - it does come with a cost (not trying to moralize here :) ).

      Thanks. See you are an expert here ... :)

      Will see but for the moment I will not bother that much. I still need to understand and be a bit more confident on the aging.ai results and answer the questions I have before trusting more what they do.

      albedo one thing for sure is they are using young.ai to generate data to feed the networks to improve them. The time tracking especially will allow them to find how hyperparameters (e.g measurement, lifestyle choices, ...) effect aging.

      Yes I also understand it like that. Different than aging.ai where they were more interested to the same mechanism of improvement for the blood biomarkers relative importance (in guessing age) and genetics dependency (cross ethnicity). I guess those were the main results of the two papers they refer to resp. for v 1.0 and v 3.0

  • Anyone here who tried to compare aging.ai and Levine's Phenotypic Age results?
