Another forecast given by Jason Hope for the future of the internet of things is that it will provide increased value to all sectors of the economy. Right now the IoT is most famous for providing value for entertainment, gaming and fitness. There can be a shift away from these categories and into retail and industry. The supermarket chain, Kroger is already utilizing IoT technology to help cut down of food waste in its freezers.
As the internet of things becomes more common and prevalent in our society, the internet of things should stop being called a thing. Jason Hope compares the IoT to the world wide web. People used to say I am getting on the world wide web. Now they don’t because it is so common and part of our lives now. The same should occur for the IoT in the future. It won’t be a thing but just a part of our daily life.
