“You should think about technology in an exponential manner and not think about it as constrained...But instead, think about it as: the problem that is the most distant is actually the most attractive to solve. And if you just start with that problem way out there and don't think about what you have as capabilities today, you will automatically build a path to it...It just allows you to have more limitless thinking."
–Anju Ahuja, VP, Product Strategy & Insights of CableLabs
