We are living in an increasingly digital world. In fact, you can look back just a year ago in order to see how much things have changed. The world is turning toward the internet as the final frontier and that may actually fundamentally change the way that we live our lives. Jason Hope is world renown futurist who has done a ton of predictive work within the realm of technology. He’s also an entrepreneur and venture capitalist who has a vast amount of experience within the industry. Hope right now is gearing up all of his systems toward pursuing something called the Internet of Things.
The Internet of Things. The very title sounds dramatic and encapsulating because it is. The internet is such an important facet of our lives that it shouldn’t surprise anyone to hear that it is becoming a new industry in and of itself. The Internet of Things specifically refers to the way that all of our technology interfaces with the internet. Right now the IoT is manifesting itself through smart technology primarily but Hope believes that it will soon leave the realm of entertainment and become a standard function of day to day living.
The Internet of Things isn’t just about being entertained. Jason Hope believes that the IoT has the potential to seriously impact the way our lives work. Hope points to the IoT in belief that it can potentially majorly reduce waste and expenses in a variety of different industries. He believes that the IoT can improve public transit, reduce carbon footprints, and improve the quality of our lives. While the Internet of Things would impact big cities the most, it would make a difference all over the world where the internet is available. Hope says, “It will not be long before every home in the developed world will be dependent on IoT connected devices.”
As an entrepreneur Jason Hope has to always be looking ahead and ready to jump into a new section of technology. After all, if Hope wasn’t ahead of the curve how could he call himself a futurist? Hope says, “I like to envision a greater longterm meaning to all of my ideas.” Hope relies on his ability to forecast ahead to guide him to new projects. He also makes sure to put real passion into every one of his projects because he believes that is the only way to succeed.
