Jason Hope is a world renowned futurist who has been working in the industry for over a decade. Hope graduated from Arizona State University and he grew up in Tempe. Since then Hope has been focused on staying ahead of the curve and focusing on key concepts before they hit the mainstream. As a futurist it is his job to project where things are heading in order to take advantage of them when they get there. For years now Jason Hope has been slowly prepping the world for something called the Internet of Things. The Internet of Things is a revolutionary concept that has been made possible thanks entirely to prevalence of technology and the prevailing nature of the internet today.
The Internet of Things. The phrase conjures up a sort of nebulous feeling but it definitely has become more grounded with people beginning to understand it. What the Internet of Things refers to is simple: it defines the way that the internet has become a prevailing part of our entire lives, all of the devices that we have, and how we use them. We are a more connected world than ever at this point and Jason Hope believes that this will lead even further with new technological advances. Hope says, “Soon the and connectivity in general is going to be so common place we also won’t think about it.”
When discussing the Internet of Things Jason Hope looks to the work being done by the Kroger grocery store chain. Kroger’s is utilizing Internet of Things technology in order to control temperatures throughout their frozen food and refrigerated sections. Hope points out that IoT technology can help to save money, prevent losses, and improve the quality of a product over time.
Jason Hope isn’t uniquely focused on Internet of Things in fact he has his hands in on many different projects. Jason Hope is an entrepreneur in the truest sense of the word because he has consistently shown that he is not afraid of reaching out into different projects. Hope is working hand in hand with the SENS Foundation in order to pursue advances in healthcare aimed at regenerative medication and age oriented illness. Hope donated half of a million dollars to the SENS Foundation in order to show just how much he believes in the concept. Hope is also a venture capitalist and he is always on the lookout for new projects to invest in.
