The internet is a fixture of our day to day life and it only seems to be growing into the future. That is why Jason Hope, a world renowned futurist and technologist, has been steadily ramping up his support for this concept: the Internet of Things. The Internet of Things is an umbrella term that refers specifically to the way our day to day gadgets will interact in our lives via a network connection to the internet. Consider your everyday kitchen appliances being able to operate on a network.
Consider the way that emergency response vehicles will respond to calls by utilizing a mobile network. Consider, also, the changes in the airline industry that are happening before our very eyes.Jason Hope has steadily put his name behind the Internet of Things as a concept because he firmly believes it to be not only the future of an industry but also the future of how we live our lives. He points to the airline industry as the perfect example as to how the internet of things is steadily growing into a juggernaut business concept all of its own. Hope introduced people to a host of ways the airline industry is focusing on improving their work via the Internet of Things.
To start with we can see that Virgin Atlantic has whole-heartedly put themselves behind the IoT thanks to how they create and manage their Boeing 787 jets. The Boeing 787 jet is constructed so as to constantly be in communication with a digital network. Every inch of the plane is constantly sending and receiving data from another source in order to monitor the plane as a safety check. If the plane so much as groans in the wrong way, people back at air patrol are going to be aware of it.Jason Hope also believes that the Internet of Things will bring a fundamental change to customer service within the airline industry. He thinks that more and more airlines are going to enforce IoT protocols to improve how quickly you can find your gate, how easily you can adjust your flying experience, and even as a better way to track your baggage.
