Jason Hope is an entrepreneur and a futurist. He has made predictions regarding the way the Internet of Things will effect 2018. Artificial intelligence or AI programs can communicate with people or other programs. He believes AI programs will be more intuitive, useful and a larger priority. This includes natural language processing, deep learning and image recognition. AI usage will become more in depth for everything from hotels to vehicles.
The blockchain has been discussed by Jason Hope. Cryptocurrency transactions are used by many people to protect their identities, make secure transactions and for the reliability and security. The need for better recording and greater security is increasing because transactions are occurring between devices. There are collaborative efforts taking place to ensure better connections between the Internet of Things and blockchain technology. Human input is minimal because data is transferred through different devices. It is less likely to be exploited because it is stored in the same location.
Jason Hope predicts any issues regarding encryption keys will be resolved. When a centralized location is used to store multiple record copies it eliminates data exploitation. Concern about hackers can be handled with encryption. Electronics and medical devices are storing financial information. This makes encryption a priority. The Internet of Things may revolutionize the field of healthcare. Connected devices are producing a large volume of information such as fitness trackers. They are often synced with various apps. When meta data is analyzed it can lead to marketing solutions based on actual data instead of surveys.
Skilled jobs in manual labor include dangerous machines. Human supervision is required for safety. Jason Hope sees the importance of sensors detecting when a worker is drowsy and their speed. Some machines have programming that will turn them off if conditions become dangerous. Machines can ingest additional information with AI learning. This enhances efficiency and improves safety. Instead of turning to manuals for complicated machinery, the worker will be able to ask the machine about the correct setting and receive a response instantly.
Jason Hope has also discussed face recognition. He predicts sensors equipped with AI for connecting to people or devices will become more useful. The elderly often require home care facilities due to health issues and fall risks. Sensors can help the person live at home by detecting unusual movements. If the system uses AI and voice recognition, the individual would be able to call for help.
