They talk about blockchain (3:15), cryptocurrencies and—separately—tokenization (14:15), various forms of artificial intelligence and automation efforts (20:00), the proliferation of cloud usage in the region (25:30), and the feud that unfolded between India and Singapore earlier this year and what’s ahead for the two nations (28:00). They wrap things up by admitting to their favorite Netflix shows that bring them shame (35:30) and Wei-Shen talks about some of the stories she’s working on for 2019 (48:30).
