Looking forward to see what can come out of these discussions in the future. Use cases could be that weather stations are polled every x seconds and that a advanced script then processes that data on the iExec network for accurate predictions etc.
Don't know why more people scoop up some rlc.. It already got a 900k grant from the government, and it has a lot of company relationships, government interest etc. Not to mention they own more fiat worth of ETH then the whole RLC market cap.
iExec is about to release v4 in december, which will finally add the sidechain, making iExec competive AND highly secure for computing tasks. It will also add GPU support to make specific tasks a lot more efficient, and it releases bag of tasks soon, making you able to execute many tasks on a single transaction.
(As you can see above, i'm a fan of iExec, but ofcource also want to congratulate IOTA for also being part of improving Earth observation)
