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.

Re: 84%!
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.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
