"Intelligent Enterprise"--deeply understanding a business problem and making clever use of data in the background to provide a unique solution. FinTech--providing a better value to consumers for financial services by removing intermediaries IoT--beautifully designed products that invent a new category, or re-invent a sleepy one Robotics--machines that yield a massive performance advantage not just replace labor "Frontier"--any crazy idea that can create a new market and make life better
I focus more on application layer than deep infrastructure. Also more interested in "brave new world" ideas than threading the needle in a crowded market.
