Jason Hope Describes How He Sees The Internet Of Things Changing Everything
Jason Hope is a futurist and entrepreneur who has years of experience in the technology sector. In an effort to share his knowledge about the Internet of Things he recently self-published a book that is available for the Kindle on Amazon. The name of his book is “Understanding the Internet-of-Things Revolution: A Quick Guide for Thriving in the IoT Era”. He wants to help people understand this advance in technology and how it will change everyone’s lives in the not so distant future.
As Jason Hope explains it, technology has been following Moore’s law in that it is increasing in power at an exponential rate. Devices that today fit in your pocket have far more power than building-sized computers that were used in the 1970s, for example. Combining this with digital storage costs rapidly declining plus so many devices being connected to the internet and there is a perfect storm that is occurring that will sweep over the world. Devices are increasingly able to talk to each other so that people’s lives are made ever more convenient. The next stage in this progress is referred to the Internet of Things (IoT).
It’s not just people’s lives that will be forever altered as more and more devices are part of the IoT. Entire business models will be upended. Only those companies that are prepared for what is to come will thrive while those that aren’t prepared will likely die off. Companies need to take advantage of things like BigData and artificial intelligence in order to keep pace with their competitors, let alone gain market share.
Jason Hope was one of the early entrepreneurs when it comes to mobile technology. He had released an app that was very successful and made him a fortune. He now uses that money to invest in early-stage technology companies that he sees as having great promise. He writes articles, and now the book, in order to explain to people just how revolutionary IoT will be and how they need to embrace it in order to advance their careers and make the best use of it.
Jason Hope was born and raised in Tempe, Arizona and now lives in Scottsdale. He earned both a finance degree and MBA from Arizona State University. In addition to being an investor and entrepreneur he is also a philanthropist who has given money to many worthy causes, such as the SENS Foundation which he supported by writing a $500,000 check.
