I think what we've done over the last 10 years or so, we focused primarily on improving existing processes and then making them more efficient. Now I think because of the combination of these four technologies — IoT, AI, blockchain and fog [computing] — I think we will reach the next phase where we see new value propositions, like mass customization, mass personalization. We see new business models. We're starting to look at opportunities like micro transactions, which I think you need blockchain, fog, IoT and AI for that. Convergence of existing industries, like technology and transportation. I actually see manufacturing and retail to be converging as well. Traditionally, we had B2B as a primary sort of market for IoT. We're starting to see B2C start to emerge as a much more interesting market. The reason I'm excited about it is because we're moving from efficiency to new value creation. It will be very interesting.
