The world looks up to entrepreneurs who are able to see technological trends before they ever materialize. Those who can see into the future, almost as if they held a crystal ball, are often the ones who are able to change the way that people live, having the power to imagine what is possible before anyone has even thought that such things could exist.
No one fits this description better than Jason Hope, one of Arizona’s most prolific entrepreneurs and one of the most important tech titans currently alive in America today. After having founded Jawa, the first premium content streaming service, which was able to beat Apple, Google and other tech giants to the premium streaming content idea, almost a decade before they adopted that business model, Hope went on to have a superlative career, founding dozens of highly successful startups.
Today, Hope spends the majority of his time writing and blogging about all things technological on his own blog and for a number of tech outlets online. One of the recurring themes and Hope’s writing is that the Internet of Things is going to be the single most important source of technological innovation in the future. Hope predicts that by 2020, there will have been more than $6 trillion invested in Internet of Things technologies. Hope believes that this will represent one of the richest opportunities for young entrepreneurs to make their mark on the technological landscape, providing the opportunity to create businesses today that may prove to be the giants of tomorrow.
Hope believes that the technologies encompassed in the Internet of Things will present one of the most transformative changes that has ever been seen since the technological revolution itself. He predicts that almost everything will be affected, from automobiles to windows to refrigeration systems. Hope believes that one of the most important sources of innovation will be the incredible extent to which things are automated using Internet of Things technologies.
One example that Hope likes to give is the fact that current refrigeration systems are already capable of taking inventories on the items contained within them. Hope believes that tomorrow, these refrigeration systems will actually be able to order groceries automatically on set schedules, which will then be delivered directly to the house automatically after being fulfilled at the grocery store through automated robotics not unlike those seen today and Amazon’s order fulfillment centers.
Hope says that this spread of automation to nearly every aspect of quotidian life will radically transform the way in which everyday Americans live their lives. Hope believes that the Internet of Things will usher in an era of leisure time never seen before in human history, perhaps fulfilling the prophecy of the technological revolution: the virtual abolition of menial work.
