Jason Hope Predicts A Better Society With The Internet Of ThingsJuly 10, 2019 - Author: steph
The Internet of Things focuses on all the different devices that are able to connect to the internet, such as our laptops, tablets, phones, our SMART homes, watches, and even our cars. It is predicted that over thirty million devices will be connected to the Internet by 2020.
The technology expert, Jason Hope believes that this will be the biggest investment major companies will take. While this seems small to many, it has large implications. Smaller businesses will have to keep up, making almost every device able to connect to each other.
Right now we are using the internet for connecting with others. According to Jason Hope, the day will come when we are waking up and using it to warm our feet, turn on the lights, and brew our coffee. Businesses need to focus on making apps for consumers that are relevant and engaging to their daily lives, and they need to be able to do it across a variety of platforms.

Hope understands that there are people that are nervous about the Internet of Things but he encourages them to look at the situation from a different angle, such as having the ability to do things remotely will keep us safer and remove some of the waste issues we have as a society. For a perfect example of the two, we can look at vehicles. Since the invention, we have added blind spot monitors to keep us from getting in the lane with another car there and back up monitors that help us avoid backing into something.
We tend to think about how the Internet of Things helps out larger cities but, according to Jason Hope, they also help people in rural areas by providing GPS tracking so emergency personnel can get to them sooner.
Technology has changed drastically in the last thirty years, and if Jason Hope’s predictions do come true, it will be interesting to see where we are in the next thirty years.
