The 6th Annual Aging Research, Drug Discovery and Artificial Intelligence Forum was certainly one of the highlights of this year's Basel Life. We heard inspiring talks both from thought-leaders and rising stars in the field, and I was impressed to see the diversity of the panels and speakers. I will definitely attend again next year.

This was my first time at the ARDD meeting and I greatly regret missing previous ones, because it was absolutely excellent. A top-quality speaker lineup among which I felt honoured to be included, and an audience comprising a healthy mix of in-crowd and newcomers. One of the best longevity-focused meetings in Europe, for sure.

This event brings together two merging fields: "AI, were exponential progress happens already, and life science, where it will happen next."

This meeting reflected the fact that the future is here and that drug discovery and AI are now mainstream in our scientific journey to delay and stop aging.

Aging poses profound health-related challenges that need to be tackled to reduce the social and economic burden on our aging society. It is therefore indispensable that industry and academia develop deeper cooperation and greater interchange of knowledge and technology.

For this purpose, world leading experts from different research fields and various sectors came together for the 6th Aging, Drug Discovery and Artificial Intelligence Forum, which was held in Basel as part of the Basel Life Science Week, September 10−12.

The event was co-organized by Morten Scheibye-Knudsen, Center for Healthy Aging, University of Copenhagen and Alex Zhavoronkov, Insilico Medicine.
