Anything that could give rise to smarter-than-human intelligence – in the form of Artificial Intelligence, brain-computer interfaces, or neuroscience-based human intelligence enhancement – wins hands down beyond contest as doing the most to change the world. Nothing else is even in the same league. (Eliezer Yudkowsky)
In this episode, we contemplate how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can help you stay healthier. I am joined by Harry Glorikian, author of The Future You: How Artificial Intelligence Can Help You Get Healthier, Stress Less, and Live Longer.
I was thinking about the roadmap to health aging that I evolved during my recovery from spinal stenosis-induced sciatica and spinal surgery. In each of the foundational pillars of my roadmap, I had to make lifestyle changes and establish new habits. For example, when I implemented time restricted eating, I had to establish the habit of never snacking after dinner. When I decided to adopt a ketogenic nutrition plan, I had to establish the habit of limiting my intake of carbohydrates. To help me be consistent in establishing these habits, I loaded two apps onto my smart phone. One is a simple fasting app that tells me when my fasting time is done. The simple fact that I start the timer as soon as I have finished dinner, keeps me from eating before I go to bed and I use this app every day.
On the other hand I also have a food tracker app, that I can use to check the amount of macronutrients, protein, fats and carbohydrates, that I eat on a given day. This is a more complex app and requires more data input from me. I only use this from time to time. All in all, there are 7 apps on my phone, that I use regularly, to help me maintain habits of nutrition, exercise, sleep, stretching and meditation – just for a start. I also have uploaded many other apps to explore- when I have more time. Clearly for me, to paraphrase Harry, the Doctor is In My Device.
