The intestinal microbiota tends to be considered stable and mature around the age of 2-3 years. However, it may undergo some changes over time. Alex Zhavoronkov, a longevity researcher, and colleagues from the artificial intelligence startup InSilico Medicine, decided to create an artificial intelligence that can predict people’s biological age, by DNA analysis of the gut microbiota. A total of 1,165 people between 20 and 90 from different countries were enrolled in this study. More than 3,600 stool samples [...]
