The Internet of Things is an umbrella term that refers to the way in which our everyday world is going to interface directly with the internet.
Jason Hope is a renowned futurist and tech innovator who believes so firmly in the Internet of Things (IoT) that he is putting all of his baskets within it. The Internet of Things, according to Hope, has the ability to change our entire world. In fact, the IoT is already effecting how we live our lives — let’s use the airline industry as an example.
The airline industry has used the Internet of Things extensively for everything from customer service to the actual safety and construction of their planes. We can look at Virgin Atlantic’s Boeing 787’s for a prime example of this. These planes are built to network directly with the internet from nose all the way to the rudder. Each piece of hardware on the plane is constantly feeding data to a command center where safety workers can keep their eyes on the plane while it is in operation. This works to keep passengers and flight professionals safe at all times.
Jason Hope knows that the Internet of Things is still in its infancy. Far from just a science fiction dream, however, is his belief that the IoT will grow into one of the largest industries in the technological world. Jason Hope is also well known for his work with the tech foundation, XPrize, as well as his own research based company — the SENS Foundation.
