In 2010, Jason Hope donates $500,000 to the SENS Research Foundation, an organization that seeks to develop anti-aging remedies. Thanks to this backing, the foundation constructed the Cambridge SENS Laboratory. Moreover, a sizable chunk of the funding also went towards the launching of a new research program. Jason has openly shown his support for the works of SENS foundation, saying that he is fully behinds the organization’s endeavors in curing the degenerative condition that is the main reason behind premature aging. Jason particularly highlighted dementia and pulmonary disease, adding that they tamper with the brain and lungs respectively, resulting in a shortened life as a result of the physical breakdown of the body organs.
Currently, the SENS Foundation is running a development program codenamed the AGE-breaker. In this case, AGE stands for advanced glycation end, a metabolic waste that is the primary predisposing factor for degenerative conditions. AGEs are the reason behind age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, osteoporosis and arthritis. Jason Hope noted that presently, the research against such conditions is underdeveloped. Nonetheless, he expressed hope that the recent breakthroughs will impel more well-wishers to donate to this cause.
In the past, the research towards developing AGE-breakers has had appalling results. This is primarily due to obsolete and inadequate facilities. However, there is light at the end of the tunnels, thanks to technological advancements. Scientists recently discovered glucosepane, the AGE of human beings; this narrows the area of research, which hopefully signals the nearing of the remedy.
Jason and the Internet of Things (IoT)
Jason Hope is an enthusiast of the Internet of Things if his utterances are anything to go by. So fond is he that he has labeled it one of the most significant discoveries in the field of technology.
Jason is expecting that prominent companies will integrate this fantastic technology into their business. Consequently, the minnow will have no other choice other than to follow suit. With the focus shifting on embracing IoT, developers will come up with devices that offer universal connection.
In the next few next few years, it will be imperative for everybody to embrace technology. Jason predicts that while smartphones and computers primary use is for Internet access, they may have more roles to perform in the coming years. He envisions the world where phones will be like universal remote controls, with the ability to instruct other appliances to perform certain home chores. These advancements will fuel competition among manufacturers, leading to the production of high quality, IoT compliant products.
