Jason Hope is the man behind the Internet of Things or, at least, the rise of it. The Internet of Things is a term that people use to describe an interconnected world that revolves around the internet. The internet, in this world, runs pretty much every accessory item in life so as to make life easier and more efficient than ever. This is a future that Jason Hope believes in. Of course, there are a great many different futures that Hope believes in because he is, after all, a futurist. Working as a futurist means that Jason Hope is always looking to what might potentially come next. This obviously leads him to reach into fields quicker than his fellow entrepreneurs. Let’s take a closer look at those fields.
The Future of Medicine
Jason Hope is not afraid of getting out of his familiar ring of expertise, which largely centers on the internet and mobile technology. Hope recently really engaged with the world of medicine and, more specifically, the future of age-related diseases. Hope hooked up with the impressive SENS Foundation in order to donate $500,000 toward their research of age-related disease and potential cures to address those problems. The SENS Foundation is located in California and they are a non-profit company that works with biotechnology in order to address how humans age.
Knowing that medicine is always going to be there makes this donation both charitable and intelligent. Hope said of the non-profit, “I have had great interest in the SENS Foundation and Dr. Aubrey de Grey’s work for some time now. I believe their work is essential to the advancement of human medicine.”
Hope’s words weren’t just kind and focused, they were echoed in thanks by the CEO of the SENS Foundation, Mike Kope. Kope responded by saying, “We need to create an entirely new biotech industry. That’s why we created SENS Foundation: to be a credible catalyst for change.” Kope has been leading the SENS Foundation for a while now and he noted that Hope’s donations would go to update on the prior work the company had been doing in 2011.
Jason Hope is also a strong proponent of Internet of Things, as we listed in our introduction. The Internet of Things is the future of technology. Hope believes that the IoT is going to be more than just a gimmick that brings entertainment to people around the world. He also believes that the IoT will grow and branch out to cover everything important including public transit, first responders, traffic systems, our vehicles and more. If Jason Hope is a successful futurist, which he has been thus far, than his prediction for the IoT could become one that changes the world.
