In his published e-book Jason Hope discusses the impact of Internet of Things on the current and future generation. It is clear that most people in both developed and developing countries have access to the internet either through smartphones, tablets or PCs. However, Tech companies are also integrating internet in vehicles, appliances, and security. It is estimated by 2020 around thirty million equipment, gadgets and objects will be part of the Internet of Things (IoT). Jason goes further to give details on the impact of IoT on privacy and what people can do to protect themselves from malicious attacks. The book is available on Amazon Kindle for just a few dollars.
Apart from being a technology enthusiast, he is also a philanthropist. He donates to organizations and gives grants to entrepreneurs to help them get their ideas off the ground. One of his significant donations was $500,000 that enabled Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence (SENS) foundation build a laboratory and carry out more research on anti-aging. SENS foundation was originally founded by David Gobel and Audrey de Grey together with the Methuselah foundation, but when they officially launched in 2009, they included four more founders. It is currently based in California. Jason Hope’s interest in the foundation is because the focus of the research is to eliminate deadly diseases thus improving the quality of life for human beings. Illnesses that affect the mind, heart, and lungs are what lead the human body to age faster. So SENS foundation hopes to eliminate such illnesses from even occurring in the first place.
Jason Hope attained his finance degree from the Arizona State University and pursued his Master’s in Business Administration in W.P. Carey School of Business. He has further interest in entrepreneurs specifically startups run by young people. He has a forum on his website where entrepreneurs can submit their ideas, and he awards a grant to the most interesting one. As a futurist, he prefers ideas that have a long-term impact on society. He also encourages young entrepreneurs to concentrate on one idea at a time and try as much as possible to keep things simple to avoid being overwhelmed by complexities.
Jason Hope has a website and a medium account where he publishes information on research and technology. He is also on Facebook and Twitter where he actively participates in discussions on IoT. He recommends entrepreneurs interested in technology to read “The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies” by Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee.
