Jason Hope is a significant supporter of the SENS Foundation. SENS is an organization dedicated to fostering the use of biotechnology in order to improve people’s quality of life through a better scientific understanding of the aging process. The concept is that if the process of aging is better understood then the prevention, and treatment of hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis and other age-related diseases can be enhanced. Jason Hope states that the foundation’s mission is not just to reverse aging and its effects, but also to improve the quality of that extended life. Mr. Hope began his association with SENS in 2010 when he made a $500,000 donation, and he has continued his financial support for the foundation.
Jason Hope is a visionary and a futurist. He has supported the SEMS Foundation by helping to identify evolving trends and developments in the biotech industry. Jason Hope is a proponent of IoT (Internet of Things) technology and has advocated for the connectedness of internet capable devices and everyday objects.
He states that while these types of IoC devices may be convenient and add to the quality of everyday life, they may also have significant security risks. In particular, the less robust devices lack the security of more advanced devices such as iPhone or Droid and are considered vulnerable. He stressed the importance of using legitimate “difficult to crack” passwords for devices and advocated for the installation of default signed and encrypted firmware by the device developer.
