Jason Hope And The Internet Of Things
When it comes right down to it, the Internet of Things is the future of the world. We don’t mean to say that with any hyperbole, and you probably aren’t sure what the Internet of Things is in any event.
The Internet of Things refers to the connectivity between every day items and the internet. Think of automated vehicles, keyless security systems, and refrigerators with televisions on them. Does this all start to sound familiar? For Jason Hope, an entrepreneur and philanthropist behind the SENS Foundation, the Internet of Things represents the future.
Before your mind leaps to some sort of “Jetson Family’ type future, Jason Hope has a few words of caution. Hope believes that current technology leaves the Internet of Things as little more than a ‘convenient option’ at the time of this writing. However, Hope does believe that there is a bright future for the technology as a whole. In fact, pushed on the subject you can tell that Hope believes that the IoT is going to be a life changing movement within the tech world. Hope believes that the major players across the corporate landscape would be wise to start investing in the IoT.
One of the biggest perks for the IoT, according to Jason Hope, is how it will streamline the life that we live. Imagine waking up in the morning and brewing a cup of coffee simply by pressing a button on your phone. Imagine roads with fewer cars, fewer accidents, and less waste. That is the Internet of Things in a nutshell.
