Jason Hope is an entrepreneur and well known writer when it comes to technology, and according to him, the next big wave is going to be in the Internet of Things. The Internet of Things is a term used to describe the way that different devices interact and sync with each other in order to maximize efficiency. An example of this could be turning on your lights with your phone, or buses interacting with traffic data.
Jason Hope believes that this is where the biggest advancement in technology will be for years to come. He states that even though right now the Internet of Things is mainly just convenience for consumers, in the future it will allow society to become safer and cleaner. An example of this is that with traffic and conditions data interacting with public transportation, we can greatly improve the speed and safety at which public transportation operates. By making this a greater option, more people would be inclined to take public transportation thus creating less traffic and emissions and increasing the flow of traffic. Not only does this apply to city though, but also to rural areas where traffic monitoring can create greater emergency response times.
Jason Hope is an entrepreneur based out of Scottsdale, Arizona. He is known as a philanthropist with a focus on education, medical, and technology. Hope is known to donate large sums of money to places such as SENS (which focuses on defeating aging) and public education systems around his community.
