You probably already heard of the technological phenomenon called Internet of Things, and it is taking a huge part of the most recent technical spotlights every week as new gadgets are being introduced to the market with the IoT attached to them.
Internet of Things is the name that describes a new technology that connects a system to apparel or furniture, is it a watch or a refrigerator. That innovative technology allows it to communicate with other apparels through a server that allows new commands to be introduced to those apparels that weren’t possible before, through the implementation of sensors. For example, a watch with this technology can detect your heart beat, how much physical activity was done that day and how many calories were burned, and it can use the server to send this information to your smartphone.
The futurist Jason Hope, who is also a philanthropist and investor, explained how the Internet of Things technology is being implemented in the equipment and computers of many airlines, allowing them to have even higher security and safety while managing flights.

These airlines use the Internet of Things to connect every part of a given plane with a sensor that will tell the control panel if it detects some irregularity. This system allows the network to warn the employees of a possible malfunctioning engine, which, if left unnoticed, could have had a disastrous effect. Although all the engines are double-checked, the utilization of a system is always faster and more practical.
Jason Hope was born in Arizona, and he has created startups and involved himself in politics many times over the last couple of years.
He got his degree in finance from Arizona State University and an MBA from ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business. Since them, he has a particular interest in technology and new inventions.
