It is getting the point where everything will have a plasma screen attached to it. From gas pumps to refrigerators, to kitchen counters, the integration of technology is everywhere. It is estimated that by 2020 over 30 billion objects will be connected to the Internet of Things. The gigantic data streaming network will reach further into our homes and business. It will be with us when we drive, it will watch over our homes, even our wallets may have WIFI capability. But what exactly is the Internet of Things? Many people still have no idea even though they are already a part of it. Jason Hope, a respected futurist and advocate of IoT, believes it to be an inescapable future everyone will have to face. To prepare people for this eventuality he has written an all-purpose guide to everything IoT related. The gudie is called, Understanding the Internet-of-Things Revolution: A Quick Guide for Thriving in the IoT Era. In is a full and easy to swallow explanation of the benefits and drawbacks of IoT. Its purpose is to prepare and protect future users.
The Internet of Things is an all-encompassing network of devices that collect and stream data. Such data is accessible to any other device connected to the network. IoT allows for unlimited connectivity, access to information, and digitization of physical systems. Unfortunately, it also renders personal and private information vulnerable. Individuals who do not understand IoT may accidentally open themselves up to exposure. They also might never enjoy the full benefit such a network has to offer. For this reason, Hope has created an easy to use guide for the purpose of safely navigating the IoT. Individuals using this guide gain a full understanding of what IoT is, the dangers involved, as well as the benefits. The guide can be used to safeguard personal information from attack, properly connect devices, and optimize use of the IoT. Hope’s knowledge of technology is vast, and his expertise on the subject of IoT is invaluable.
Jason Hope graduated with an MBA in finance from the W.P. Cary School of Business at Arizona State University. He is actively involved in business, politics, and writes articles as well. As a philanthropist, Hope has contributed greatly to the advancement of technology for the welfare of all people. His book is available on Amazon for free download on all kindle accessible devices.

George Soros is appreciated across the world for his involvement in charity for the past four decades. He strives to improve the lives of the less fortunate people. The billionaire has given a significant percent of his wealth to facilitate charity undertakings, and therefore, he has been listed among the most generous people on earth.

The Trump administration has been harsh on immigrants and other minority groups.
Soros is a Jew who was raised in Hungary during a time when the Nazi people oppressed his community. This background has inspired his participation in charity. He has always wanted to help people who are despised by others. George Soros left his motherland for the United Kingdom where he had an opportunity to join the London School of Economics.

The recent donation that it received from its founder has offered it the ability to increase its activities. Soros is now 87 years old and wants to make sure that his foundation will be able to run its operations even when he will not be around. To date, the Open Societies Foundation has transformed the lives of millions of people from across the world. It acts as a voice for the people who cannot speak for themselves.

As the head of D’Or Institute for research, Moll has had many successes in his career and the education sector. He understands the objective of schooling critically and thus has put into place the value of the few resources that are available to enable people to garner the most of the few resources. As a head in the healthcare sector, he notes that the few resources in the healthcare facilities lead to the compromised services offered in the facilities. He advocates for the coherence of both the government and the healthcare sector to enhance the delivery of the quality services to the patients.
As a motivational speaker, he notes that making the right decision is paramount in order to make the right solutions for the problems that are facing the society. He adds that the decision-making process should entail all the stakeholders in the sector of the healthcare including the patients and the private healthcare facility. According to Jorge Moll, the aim of the health sector should not be diverted from offering quality services equally to all the patients who seek the services. This would ensure an overall healthy society and similarly and overall great and productive economy.
As a doctor in the healthcare, he notes that great part of the resources of the domestic expenditure is used in the health sector. He notes that, as the ailments continue to increase due to new lifestyles and pathogens bringing new ailments, there should be a need for innovation in the health sector. Jorge Moll notes that adopting new technology would enhance efficiency in the health sector and ensure that the health of the community does not deteriorate and there is great human production.
Innovation cannot be ignored and to be a globally competitive nation; one has to buy or adopt innovative ways of conducting their services. As a person who has a passion for saving the lives of people, he advocates for transparency in all healthcare institutions to ensure that the ultimate goal of saving lives is upheld. Jorge continues to motivate ill people and the aged as they continue battling for their lives (ResearchGate).
According to Jeff Yastine, whenever bureaucrats make their presence in an industry, chief compliance officers should be recruited immediately. In addition, they should be accompanied with an entire department of their lieutenants to ensure that every individual in the company complies with the new command. However, whether extra rules make things better or worse is a debatable issue. Often, more rules results in increased costs for a company. It also means a reduction in stock prices unless a business embraces regulatory technology.
Regtech is the use of tools such as artificial intelligence and blockchain technology among other types of advanced technology with the aim of cutting down on regulatory costs. This strategy offers a huge investment opportunity. Recently, Bain & Co. identified 80 young firms that it referred to as “emerging regtechs.” The company’s products and services are slowly being employed in compliance-heavy sectors such as the insurance industry where they require tech-supplied boost to profits. A large number of the firms are still privately-held. Most of these services are in the startup stage with unknown names like OnRule, Taxometry, Flexeye and ComplyAdvantage.
However, a few publicly traded regtech firms are likely to expand considerably in the coming years. According to Let’s Talk Payments, a financial technology website, international banks are spending nearly $70 billion to ensure compliance with all the set of laws in the industry. This amount is likely to rise to around $120 billion in the next three years, as the institutions increase their spending on regtech products and services.
The forms that are used by many banks to make customers checkmark and sign to authenticate their identity when they open a new account relates to the federal anti-corruption and anti-money laundering rules. Fulfilling such rules and complying with current regulations via legacy systems can take nearly two years at a cost of over $10 million in leading banks. If handled via a regtech specialist, it may take three months at a cost of $300,000.
One thing that points to the investment potential in the industry is the regulators that are taking notice. Some entities have brought the young companies into their system. A number of premier institutions have planned to incorporate regtech firms into their bureaucratic orbit. These institutions include the U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Monetary Authority of Singapore and the Bank of England.
