Jason Hope is a futurist and technologist who is known for always being on the cutting edge of technological innovations. Hope, a graduate from Arizona State University, has been one of the bigger names in the tech industry thanks to his ability to be right there with the market trends as they turn. Hope’s latest fascination has been with the Internet of Things. The Internet of Things is going to be one of the biggest industries that the tech world has seen and if Jason Hope is correct, this could fundamentally change our lives.
To start things out, the Internet of Things is a term that refers to the way that smart technology is becoming more and more prevalent in our day to day activities. Hope believes that at some point in the future we will see humans interact with the internet almost all of the time. Think of smart phones interacting with your kitchen appliances or how smart technology can help to re-route public transit to faster routes. While this all seems exceedingly normal — it isn’t. This is the tip of the iceberg on one of the most innovative journeys that humans are going to make within technology. We are going to be living in an increasingly connected world.
The reason that Hope is so keyed in on the Internet of Things is that he believes it to be one of the most important industries to be sprouting out of fertile ground with technology. Hope says, “My focus right now is on doing what I can to accelerate human intelligence using technology.” Hope believes that the Internet of Things is going to be that next great leap for mankind and he is publicly and vocally urging the major corporations out there to pay attention to investing options as they come around.Jason Hope got his start in the tech world with Jawa, a mobile communications business. Now Hope is focused on his work as an entrepreneur, philanthropist, investor capitalist and researching. Hope’s work with the SENS Foundation is becoming increasingly important as the years go by and we expect their focus to shift to the Internet of Things moreso now.
