The Internet of Things is not just a tech fad gripping household appliance manufacturers. Bringing smart technology to the world outside of computers and smart phones will benefit society outside of the household. It will make waste reduction and improvements in safety possible that aren’t achievable in a world that is not Internet connected. For example, response times to automobile accidents will be reduced when cars have the smart technology and connectivity needed to automatically report GPS location and physical condition information. Finding the accident and knowing what injuries are possible before arriving at the scene will make the deployment of emergency response resources far more efficient than it is today.
This is the world of possibilities predicted by Jason Hope, an entrepreneurial investor in mobile technologies based in Scottsdale, Arizona. Hope holds a B.S. in Finance and an MBA from Arizona State University and has been active as a technology investor for over ten years. He has also been an active philanthropist, recently donating half a million dollars to the SENS Foundation to further research in biotechnologies aimed at solving health problems associated with aging, such as Alzheimer’s, Atherosclerosis, and Diabetes.
