Artificial intelligence is also a fast-growing trend. Is Unisys seeing demands from customers to provide expertise or leadership in terms of AI?
I'll give you an example. We have a very substantive global workspace solution called InteliServe. This is our work on behalf of our clients to maintain the security of the data that exists in laptops and servers, as well as in Apple Watches and telephones and tablets. [InteliServe] includes a help desk feature for the people using those devices with respect to their data. We do this for millions of people around the world. We do it in over 100 countries around the world. And in that effort, artificial intelligence is absolutely critical because you constantly have to be learning, to constantly be understanding the data, so that if you see an issue, whether it's a security issue or a technical issue or even a hardware issue, if you see an issue arising in one area of the world or in one application or one company, you've got to analyze it very quickly. You want to understand from a predictive standpoint where is it going next and how do you get ahead of any issues.
