cloud and broadband
The cloud and broadband, what synergy. One justifies the other. And having what I presume may be turnkey solutions for digitizing business processes should be attractive to Oracle's customers who have not digitized as much as they would like to.

speaking of 5G
Speaking of 5G, did anyone see the full-page advertisement in the newspapers from Verizon regarding how 5G is going to change the world? The tone of the ad was, "no, seriously, it will."

This requires companies to deliver their products and services faster and more user friendly. Companies also have to develop mobile-ready content and apps to allow consumers to access content faster.

Re: 84%!
I wonder how many secretary and personal assistant jobs were lost with the rise of smartphones? You no longer need someone to take notes for you when your phone can do it.

Haha I know the episode you are talking about! There are so many shows and movies about AI going haywire and it really seems like more of a warning for the future instead of science fiction anymore.

Re: 84%!
I've always wondered how the personal shopper idea could become a viable business. Yes, there's folks who don't want to take the time to shop personally, and can afford the extra cost of a personal shopper. But, I would suspect it's maybe not enough of them to create a demand for the service in order to survive. I would guess AI is going to be able to serve as one's "personal shopper" sometime down the road.

Those robot dogs that open doors and can get up after being kicked over freak me out. I'd be ok with a robo-pooch delivering my Amazon packages though. Even though it does mean robots replacing another human job.

The MDU market continues to face fierce competition among service providers due to tech-savvy residents (i.e., millennials), demand from building owners and management companies, plus the favorable economics of bulk contracts. However, no MDUs are the same, so service providers must use multiple technologies and inconsistent deployment models, increasing operational complexity and rollout costs.

The MDU market itself is evolving as residents adopt smart-home technologies, generating rising demand for smart apartments with built-in connected thermostats, keyless entryways and doors, and video doorbells. This evolution presents both new challenges and opportunities. In other words, service providers must consider innovative service-delivery strategies to compete and win.

In this Broadband World News and ADTRAN webinar, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will highlight emerging MDU broadband Internet trends and challenges. In addition, Kurt will outline the next-generation service creation and delivery platform, built on open standards, that allows service providers to connect millions of underserved MDUs, enables creation of user-driven services, and reduces operational complexity and costs.

Plus, special guest, Alice Lawson, Broadband and Cable Program Manager for the City of Seattle, will discuss Seattle’s B4B-Build For Broadband initiative that addresses best practices in planning for MDU telecommunication infrastructure.
