on december 20, 2016, atthe forum themed “connect dreams with you”, edward tian put forward the concept“everything needs operation”. in the era of iot, with cloud computing andartificial intelligence getting mature, we receive data feedback and establish real-time connection through operation. operators are the core part in thisprocess. for example, if a refrigerator manufacturer installs an iot chip ineach refrigerator, then this manufacturer will not only provide refrigerator services but also become a food operator, because he will be the first to knowwhen your eggs have run out and when you need to buy new vegetables. nowadays, thepopular uber and didi are just data companies in nature, because they do nothave vehicles, but they have the data about when and where what a kind ofcustomer needs a car and can send the data to drivers.
this is the era of iot, which is not a simple means but a kindof force
