Jason Hope on Internet of Things
Internet of Things analysts are trying to figure out how it’s going to change or shape the future of mankind. Jason Hope, the futurist is convinced that already, The Internet of Things (IoT) is here. According to Jason Hope, we are no longer just getting access to the Internet using our smartphones, but these same devices are now able to communicate with the consumer, manufacturer, and/or with other connected devices. This, according to Jason Hope is going to open up exciting and new possibilities in technology, retail, health care, and more.
In the years ahead, Jason is convinced that if a device doesn’t come embedded with modern software, electronics, sensors or some other form of connectivity then most likely, it will be rendered obsolete. At the same time, the world is going to witness a wider acceptance of mobile payment.
However, security will continue to be a major concern for all involved in the development and growth of the IoT. After all, you will not want to be driving a car that is connected only to have a hacker taking control.
