For most, aging is simply a natural aspect of life, but futurist Jason Hope sees things differently. He believes that aging is just another disease and we can treat it accordingly. To bring about the end of aging, Hope is investing in the Strategies for Engineering Negligible Senescence Institute. The research conducted here can involve everything from lengthening telomeres to funding new pharmaceuticals.
Focused on developing ways to prevent and reverse aging, the SENS institute fits the definition of what Jason Hopes believes will define the future ahead of us.
The Internet Of Everything
The Internet of Everything is one of the latest buzzwords in tech, but Jason Hope sees the phenomena expanding even more in the future. As an active investor in the tech industry, he puts his money where his mouth is. Specifically, he believes future appliances will collect and share data to a far greater extent than we see today. That data will lead to all sorts of revolutions in home life, work, and other areas of our life. Most people will live in “smart” homes capable of automating just about every household chore out there. Ultimately, the Internet of Everything gives us the chance to live lives with more convenience and leisure.
Giving Back To The World
Jason Hope is an incredibly successful entrepreneur, but he does believe in using his money to help others in need. His philanthropy mostly focuses on ways to use technology to solve the world’s problems. This means Hope puts a lot of money into scientific research and ways to apply the results. That optimism for the future runs through just about everything Jason Hope does. His businesses are built around tech, his life philosophy is built around tech, and the way he approaches important issues is filtered through it as well.
The Future Is Now
While Jason Hope’s futurism tries to predict what will happen next, he is strongly invested in the world around him. Entrepreneurship, especially in the industries Hope focuses on, is essentially trying to make predictions come true. He finds businesses he believes will succeed, and he gives those businesses the help they need to grow. When someone decides to take action into their own hands, that person has the ability to shape the ultimate outcome. With everything riding on his predictions, it’s safe to assume that Hope is right about the trajectory of technological development.
