The Internet of Things is going to have a huge impact on the tech industry in the years of come and there is one man leading the charge. Jason Hope, an ASU grad who started the mobile communications company Jawa, has been proudly touting the future of the Technology for the past couple of years. Hope is a renowned futurist and a venture capitalist who has made his entire career out of being at the forefront of industry innovations. Hope, from Tempe, AZ, believes that the Internet of Things is going to revolutionize the airline industry before going on to make a dramatic change in the rest of our day to day lives.
The Internet of Things, for those not in the know, references the way that we interact with the internet by way of our daily objects and devices. Look at how the internet has changed smart technology — FitBits, athletic smart shoes, self driving cars and so on. The Internet of Things, Jason Hope admits, is currently living on the fringe of the social conscience but he believes that it will soon be at the forefront of the tech industry thanks to the airline industry’s new focus on the concept.
The airline industry is one of the largest global industries on the planet so it makes sense that they are going to be ready to embrace new and important technology. Hope believes that forward thinking airline companies will begin to really pay attention to the way that the Internet of Things can help craft a better service. There are a variety of ways that the Internet of Things can improve the general experience of people who need to go fly. Let’s dig into a few of those concepts.To start with, the Internet of Things can change the way that customers interact with their airline experience the moment they walk into a door. Hope predicts special kiosks and wireless networked devices that allow for easy check in. He also believes that the IoT will help with creature comforts, improving and streamlining the way that companies take care of their customers.
