Jason Hope is an Arizona-based Internet entrepreneur researching anti-aging initiatives. The Sens Foundation is a non-profit anti-aging research organization that has tried to tackle age related disease such as Alzheimer’s and diabetes since 2009. Hope is a skilled futurist who can predict new trends, having a clear understanding of technology. He feels the Internet is a part of our future as more devices are invented to allow us to connect. Companies need to use the Internet more and more these days. Hope has a degree in finance from Arizona State University, as well as an MBA from ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business.
The SENS Research Foundation has held the Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference: Emerging Regenerative Medicine Solutions for the Diseases of Aging in Santa Clara, CA. This conference is designed to bring leadership from fields such as academic, industrial, investments, policies, and disease activism groups, all whom, are working together in one place to combine their efforts. The SENS acronym stands for “Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence.” The group is making an effort to reduce diseases brought by aging. The SENS foundation works on scientific research, advocacy, and education to help professionals treat age-related illnesses that the anti-aging industry seeks to combat.
Scientists have quite a few barriers to working on anti-aging research such as funding, support, and regulations, which slows down their efforts to make new anti-aging medicines. Age-related illness includes Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, macular degeneration, musculoskeletal disease, and Parkinson’s disease. The focus of the conference is on how to prevent these devastating illnesses that ravage aging bodies. Jason Hope has donated $500,000 to the SENS Research Foundation. The SENS foundation wants to engage in anti-aging research to advance medical science by which they want to reverse aging altogether.
Hope started his career as a mobile communications company but he then changed his focus to philanthropy, biotechnology, and start-ups. His advice for entrepreneurs is to work on one project at a time since many have trouble staying on one task at a time. He has a grant program where he gives away $500 to young entrepreneurs; he has placed a lot of faith in young entrepreneurs, whose future is about developing new technology. He believes that IoT “Internet of Things” technology creating integrative devices has come a long way. Hope believes in looking at the bigger picture, not the smaller details like he used to when he first started. More and more devices are going to be connected in the future.

Technology has been the hallmark for this generation. Is has been the hinderance of millennials in the eyes of the older generations and has given rise to a new future that was once thought to happen in the Jetsons cartoons. But as the case with anything new, there are always people that try to take advantage of it. The new technologies people see on television commercials are being used by hackers to find and steal personal information from unknowing peoples. If this seems scary, it’s because it is, and it’s very real; just ask futurist Jason Hope.
Hope is a known futurist, or someone who studies patterns and tries to predict the future. Now Jason is not a soothsayer; he has a business degree from Arizona State University and has work experience in the IT field, which allows him to identify potential future happenings in the technological world. He warned of this coming, the coming of IoT, or the Internet of Things.
New technology like the Samsung Smart Refrigerators is being targeted by a new generation of hackers. They will use the fridges as a “man-in-the-middle” vulnerability to steal the passwords to other’s gmail accounts. It’s similar technology like the fridges that has people like Hope on edge. He says that the new technologies have low computing power, which does not allow for any advanced encryption to protect the sensitive information that may be stored or flown through the devices.
With people now using these IoT devices, and the constant threat about them being so high, people might wonder what can they do to protect themselves and their sensitive information. There are a few simple ways you can do it. One would be to change your password on the devices and your own accounts every so often so your information is not being kept safe by a stagnant password. Also, turn off unused technologies that could leave you vulnerable to attacks. This includes smart lights, cooking products, and others of the like. Another way to protect your information is to make sure all of your devices are on the same network and networks have their own unique identifying signature, that way administrators can quickly identify and combat potential attacks.
Jason Hope is on the brightest entrepreneurs in the tech-world. He is also one of the brightest futurists in the tech world and that has allowed him to be on the forefront of the IoT. While he is extremely excited about the Internet of Things, he also has given grave warnings.
