Jason Hope is one of Arizona’s most recognized on businessmen. Since starting his first company, Jawa, Hope has gone on to have an incredibly successful career, building companies from the ground up, ranging from search engine optimization to online reputation management and almost everything in between. Over the course of his career, Hope has demonstrated a profound ability to spot trends and act on them, creating huge value and innovating in the process.One of the areas that Hope sees as providing gigantic opportunities in the coming years is the Internet of Things. Broadly speaking, the Internet of Things includes all technologies that involve the automation and networking of devices and objects that were not previously part of a network. Examples of this are too numerous to completely list but include things such as self-driving cars, automated aircraft, intelligent climate control systems within buildings and many other innovative technologies that we will see implemented over the next decade.
Hope believes that these technologies will create enormous opportunities for entrepreneurs and will radically transform for the better the ways in which everyday people live their lives. But Hope is also realistic about the costs such new technologies will impose. He thinks that the transition to the widespread adoption of some of these technologies will be highly disruptive to a wide swath of industry.A few examples of this include such things as the likely displacement of professional drivers, as all vehicles become self driving or the next 10 to 20 years.
Another example is the likely displacement of most entry-level fast food workers, who will slowly be displaced by automated food preparation technology comment such as that already seen add a number of restaurant chains throughout the state of California.Hope fully recognizes that many of these workers will have difficulty keeping up with the rapidity of technological progress. Hope is realistic about the unfortunate consequence that many of these workers will not be able to be retrained in suitable employment. This is why he believes it’s important to start talking now about how we might implement social safety net programs, such as the universal minimum wage.
