The SENS organization is an innovative scientific research and medical facility; they focus primarily on disease prevention through innovative technology to improve bodily functioning. The work done at SENS is sometimes considered bordering on science-fiction, but for tech guru Jason Hope they seem to be a promising organization (Instagram).
For the scientists to achieve their objective, they have taken a deep interest in stem cell research. In particular, SENS states that they intend to apply stem cell intervention to prevent diseases from happening. Recently they have announced that the clinical trials for a remedy to Parkinson’s disease are making headway. Investor, futurist and entrepreneur Jason Hope suggests that the real-time data collection ability of IoT allows remote monitoring of at-risk patients in the healthcare field. The study of stem cells has been around for many years, but the commercial application has never really taken off except for some promising findings here and there.
Some enterprising startups have repeatedly swindled unsuspecting clients under the pretense of stem cell success without proof. Jason Hope himself has stated that he is also aware of the risks involved with stem cell technology but still offers philanthropic aid to their research. On the flip side, IoT, another one of Jason Hope and his technological predictions, has come full circle as he claimed in its early days. The progress and penetration that IoT has made five years after he expressed excitement about it is nothing short of awesome.
Today futurist and entrepreneur Jason Hope now champions conservation efforts worldwide that have adapted practical applications for Internet of Things in the wilderness to improve everyday people’s lives at the most affordable cost possible. The ability for IoT to transmit real-time data has proved to be a rather economic tool for various forms of conservation research projects. Jason Hope talks about how these researchers use IoT to remotely track endangered wildlife and record their patterns or monitor illegal logging and poaching in the forests. These examples and more have now created ripples in how the world tackles climate change to reverse the effects of global warming and human-wildlife conflict.
