For those late joining the party the Internet of Things refers to the connectivity of electronic devices. At present numerous appliances, devices, and computers have the ability to sync with one another. The fridge can talk to the oven, which can talk to the phone, which can communicate with the T.V. It is amazing to think that one day we can call our oven and turn it on while driving home from work. Hope, who is a huge advocate of anti-aging, believes in the betterment of the quality of life. The IoT fits into this vision as interconnectivity can greatly increase the quality of life.
According to Hope, as major players become involved in the IoT, the benefits will cause other players to become involved simply to catch up. The change to business will be revolutionary, the consumer will be able to accomplish a lot more from their couch, it will be the death nail to numerous businesses, but it will lead to a better lived and connected life. The IoT will allow people to be better informed, better connected, it will allow business to improve, and will allow transcendence in many avenues. One such avenue being the medical field. To illustrate his point Hope looked at public transportation and how the IoT can create less traffic, less pollution, and ensure better safety.
