He is a philanthropist, futurist, entrepreneur and investor among other things. Although it may sound like I’m talking about Tony Stark, A.K.A. Iron Man, I’m not. I’m talking about Jason Hope. Jason may not have super powers but what he does have is a big heart and big vision.
Jason recently spoke about what he believes will be the biggest advancement in the tech industry for years to come. He was talking about The Internet of Things. Think of it like this. Everything around us will eventually need to talk about successful technology each other; much like your smart phone and PC can do now but on a much larger scale. Soon everything from your home appliances, car, phone, watch and inevitably every conceivable item around you will be connected. Imagine a world where your shoes know what type of surface they are walking on and can adjust the padding to give you the most comfortable feeling, possibly tracking how many steps you have taken and using that information to send alerts to your phone when you need a new pair.
Like all things, competition between companies will advance this technology at a rapid pace. We can already see such things as public transportation utilizing this tech to monitor maintenance needs and real time mapping. Jason honestly believes that The Internet of Things will greatly improve our quality of life.
Jason Hope has an MBA from ASU’s W.P Carey school of Business and is a big believer in helping his community. As a philanthropist, Jason supports numerous causes including the SENS foundation. SENS main focus Anti-Aging. Rather than trying to treat a disease after it happens SENS priority is preventing them before they ever start.
While Jason can’t fly around the skies fighting bad guys, he is a beacon of hope humanity.
