Yeah, I think in the technology world, we often talk about the internet of things—virtual reality, machine learning, user experience, and things like that—which is fundamentally about treating each other as consumers and users of technologies. But there’s also another side of digital, which is connecting people to people. It’s not just about connecting machine to machine or people to machines. My job description actually talks about this change, and it goes like this, “When we see the internet of things, let’s make it internet of beings. When we see virtual reality, let’s make it a shared reality. When we see machine learning, let’s make it collaborative learning. When we see user experience, let’s make it about human experience. And whenever we hear the singularity is near, let us always remember the plurality is here.”
