The way that the internet connects to the objects we interact with on a daily basis is actually a reference to a larger umbrella of technology: the Internet of Things. The Internet of Things is here to stay as it becomes one of the largest growing industries that the tech world has seen in a very long time. The Internet of Things has grown by leaps and bounds over the years and it has seen renewed vigor in growth thanks to the urging of futurist, philanthropist, and technologist Jason Hope.Jason Hope graduated from Arizona State University before grabbing his M.B.A. in business. Hope has been on the forefront of some of the biggest marketing trends in the tech world for as far back as his career as even started. as a result, Hope has certainly earned his fair share of clout within the tech industry. So, when Hope starts to point at a new concept it is time for people to start paying attention. Hope has firmly planted his feet behind the Internet of Things in order to prop it up as what he believes to be a game changing technology.
The Internet of Things has seen almost unheralded growth in an under the radar way over the past few years. One of the primary industries that has grown underneath the Internet of Things is the airline industry. The Internet of Things has gone on to really innovate the technology that the airline industry is embracing. From Virgin Atlantic’s use of the Internet of Things in their Boeing 787 jet all the way to customer service innovations in the airport itself, we are seeing some real and lasting change.
Jason Hope believes that the airline industry is just the tip of the iceberg for what he believes to be an industry that grows by leaps and bounds over the next few years. In fact, Hope is strongly urging some of the bigger corporations to really push to pursue investment opportunities within the Internet of Things umbrella. If Hope is right then we could see the IoT turn into one of the biggest tech innovations of our lifetime.
