We all know that the digital world moves very fast, but we sometimes lose track just of how fast digital change is happening. I want to give you a quick example. In the 1990s IBM 's Deep Blue became famous for beating Gary Kasparov at chess. It was one of the world's supercomputers, costing millions of dollars to develop. Today, after only 20 years, many of you present today have more computing power in your laptops or smartphones, although, to be fair, your devices are probably not as good as playing chess as Deep Blue was.
