6 tech trends to watch at CES 2018
The very first Consumer Electronics Show was held in NY in 1967, where exhibitors showed off pocket radios and TV sets across a scattering of the city's hotels.The 1970 show saw Sony debut the videocassette recorder a year before it went on sale, and in 1978 the exhibition moved to Las Vegas.
Amazon will have its own booth for Alexa at CES this year, and it's promising "exciting new products along with hundreds of vendors who have chosen to develop products based on Amazon voice technology".
LG has been keen to show off its latest home robot at the Las Vegas event. There are giant walls of OLED TVs, a virtual reality ride, and internet-connected smart fridges that still can't keep food from spoiling without electricity.
Robots have been doing the rounds in the world of consumer electronics for a while now, with each new year hurtling us towards some kind of dystopian (or utopian - glass half full and all that) future.
"A recent report from the Government Accountability Office found that 'there remains a persistent lack of racial, ethnic, and gender diversity in the technology workforce, '" CTA president and CEO Gary Shapiro and CES senior VP Karen Chupka wrote in their response to Gender Avenger founder Gina Glantz. "This is a global issue - not just within the technology sector - all industries and our society at large can and must do better".
Artificial Intelligence- AI will also be an area of show and discussion.
"There is an isolated power outage at the Las Vegas Convention Center". We also saw Amazon's Echo range given a new lick of (technological) paint - definitely symptomatic of a big rejuvenation of the smart home industry. For 2018, it's clear that trend is only getting bigger, especially now that Google has had a full year under its belt and a chance to push out another round of AI-powered devices.
Others had humorous takes, with Intel's account calling it the "the biggest thing to hit CES since 5G".
It will be held at three different locations in Las Vegas, Nevada, dubbed Tech East, Tech West, and Tech South.
There are many other companies which will introduce innovative gadgets at the event. This is the first time in which cities development using technology is going to participate in the CES.
