Jason Hope Sees The Future Of Air Travel As Reliant On Connectivity

Connectivity is something Arizona based entrepreneur Jason Hope has a large amount of experience of working in as a leading investor in technology startups; but in recent years Hope has been increasingly impressed by the gains being made in technology by an airline industry many have seen as stranded in its successful history. Passengers will see a high level of improvement in their own experience with airlines as soon as they reach an airport, with Jason Hope seeing the use of beacons to track baggage throughout any journey as setting the minds of passengers at ease.

The inflight experience will also be improved for passengers at all times as technicians and developers are looking for new ways to use sensors and beacons to improve passenger comfort levels; in seat sensors will become increasingly important for cabin crew and pilots who will be able to ensure the comfort of passengers in terms of temperature, humidity, and hydration levels.

Shaygan Kherdpir, the Man Who Made Verizon

What it is Today Shaygan Kheradpir was a fortunate boy raised in Iran who was sent to Switzerland and later to Cornell University in the USA for exemplary education. He has a mind that works as a steel trap, and when presented with a problem will not accept half a solution but must forge ahead until he arrives at the entire solution. Kheradpir has the distinction of being world famous for his work in both technology and business. Mentors in Life Were From Vast and Varied Sources While at Cornell University, he acquired his first mentor, his Ph.D advisor, while performing robotics control. It was an outstanding failure. Kheradpir went to the advisor saying that the result was good enough, but the sage advisor told him it was unacceptable to not be 100% accurate. Kheradpir devoted more than two years checking for errors until he suddenly had a mental breakthrough and realized his math error in equations. He credits experience from that as a lesson seared in his mind: He realized emphatically that things happen for a reason, and the manner of a person’s behavior and problems that develop can always be solved by investigation. Kheradpir declares, “nothing should be shoved under a rug”, but researched until solved. Kheradpir also credits mentors who inspired or taught him at Verizon and Barclays Bank as important in his career, but emphasizes it isn’t always true mentorship but a person who was there before yet nonetheless from whom you can learn. He follows lessons learned in a book about Winston Churchill and adopted his tenacity and ability to invoke bravery. He considers Churchill a valued mentor. Discourages Silicon Valley Drop Outs Shaygan Kheradpir eschews the trend of Silicon Valley’s best minds dropping out of formal school to dive into businesses. He warns that: • Depth Matters, meaning being an expert in what you do is extremely important; • Reality Matters, which directs you to apply your skills and depth of your knowledge as fast as you can to solve your problem or situation. Verizon’s Developer and Producer Kheradpir was CTO and CIO of longest tenure and highest innovations at Verizon after its birth from a merger of GET and BELL. It was also the position he held the longest. He is not one to stay when he believes his work is complete, and some positions were finished within one year. He is credited with being responsible for Verizon attaining its level of importance in the industry it boasts today. He re-engineered core systems of the company and diversified its services, plus brought automation of operations to Verizon. Kheradpir pioneered Verizon One and FiOS. He developed small teams that collaborated in new products and modifying existing ones. His teams could rapidly test and deliver products. Kheradpir pushed the team at Verizon beyond limits enabling it to achieve a rapid pace in developing new products. Another technology developed under Kheradpir is Iobi, managing caller ID in devices and address books and did it cost effectively.
