Jason Hope is one of the most accomplished entrepreneurs in the state of Arizona. After having founded dozens of startups, he is finally taking a step back from his technological empire, taking time to write about the things he loves and to give back to the community as a whole.

Recently, Hope and announced that he would be giving $500,000 to the SENS Foundation, one of the most prestigious private research organizations in America. The donation will go directly towards atherosclerosis research, a disease that kills as many as 600,000 Americans every year. Hope is also interested in the ability of the medical community to uncover the root causes of such disease as atherosclerosis. As a long time follower of the medical literature, Hope has long been aware that the underlying inflammatory processes that lie at the heart of atherosclerotic plaque formation may also be key processes in the development of many other diseases associated with the aging process.
But Hope has not restricted his activities merely to medical philanthropy. He has also been writing about many of the topics that have formed a part of his life and his success. One of those topics has been the coming changes that will be brought about by the Internet of Things.
Hope sees major changes coming to the way in which technology is used in people’s daily lives. Hope believes that, very soon, it will be possible to do things such as shopping for groceries on a completely automated basis. Hope says that while having a refrigerator automatically order an entire week’s worth of food from the grocery store may seem far-fetched, the technologies to make this happen already largely exist.
Hope points to operations like the warehouse robots that Amazon employs across its distribution centers. These highly sophisticated and totally autonomous stocking and item retrieval mechanisms have proven the concept that completely automated shopping systems are viable. Hope believes that system such as those employed by Amazon will soon appear across the country and consumer applications. One of the areas where Hope anticipates these devices being deployed is in the area of grocery stores.
Hope also believes that, very soon, self-driving vehicles will completely revolutionize the way that people shop. Rather than having to make constant trips to the store, automated delivery systems will be able to deliver the items directly to the consumers home.
