Jason Hope is known for quite a number of reasons. However, it is his love for technology that has seen his name become popular. When he is convinced about an idea, he does not relent in telling the people about it. His commentary on technology trends is so precise that many of the things he says about upcoming innovations turn out true. Right now, there are two areas where his attention is focused on. There is the Internet of Things Technology and anti-aging drug research. He believes these two will offer opportunities which will change a lot of things.
The Internet of Things
For decades, Jason Hope has been saying that there will come a time when electronic devices will connect to the internet and be able to communicate with each other without the intervention of human beings. That time is now.
Today, there are over a billion devices that can connect to the internet, and the number is expected to reach 25 billion by 2020, according to Gartner. Any gadget that has the capability of switching on and off can use the Internet of Things.
IoT is being rolled out in almost every sector. Even in our homes, IoT is taking shape such that there are things such as automatic lighting, automatic curtain drawers, and automatic toasters among many other applications.
In industrial capacity, IoT is used to control critical infrastructures such as the power grid, cities alarm systems, and many other such applications.
