    Poonam, a few questions for you,
    1. The preview video doesn’t mention any specific practical use-case. Can you point that out for us ?
    2. Based on the presentation links shared, they are covering a wide range of concepts. Can you perhaps focus on single core problem and share how it has been solved ?
