CES 2018: Power outage at tech's biggest trade show

CES 2018: Power outage at tech's biggest trade show

The official CES 2018 dates are January 9th to 12th and here's what businesses and consumers can expect from the colossal conclave this year.

Being able to order items, select music, get information, and more by speaking to digital assistants such as Amazon's Alexa, Google Assistant, and Microsoft's Cortana has been such a hit that pressure will be on for more ways to interact with machines using voice, the researchers predicted.

In addition to cutting-edge consumer technologies, this year's CES attendees can also - as usual - expect to see offbeat, concept, and unusual innovations.

But with more than 3,900 exhibitors, CES is still a place where you can find the latest technology trends.

Samsung on Sunday unveiled its latest home appliances at the CES gadget show in Las Vegas, including an upgrade to its 2-year-old line of internet-connected refrigerators. Do you mix and match Bixby with Alexa on a Galaxy S8 and Echo, or are you a Google Assistant purist? Speakers for the ginormous event, which is operated by the Consumer Technology Association, include Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, Ford president and CEO Jim Hackett, and Baidu vice chairman Qi Lu.

Major Push To Legalize Recreational Marijuana Expected In Upcoming Session
Fortunately, even as Sessions seeks to target legal marijuana , Congress is moving forward with legislation to thwart that effort. He was originally against legalizing marijuana when it first hit the ballot. "The federal government still has laws against it".

The UN estimates that 60 percent of the world's population will live in urban ares by 2030.

Other devices seemed to extend the definition of smart home to new corners. It is expected to be one of the more internationally focused areas, with representatives from cities around the world searching for ways to sustain their growing populations. Using that technology anyone sportsperson can measure real-time injury, recovery and performance status.

Robots have always been a mainstay on the CES show floor, but they're usually more of a novelty than a real product. This year, as a result of AI, voice ports, and innovative detectors, robots are inching closer to getting used. That's because the focus has shifted from the latest auto design and how they drive, to the technology inside.

"Clearly, we don't want self-driving vehicles to hesitate for even a millisecond, so we are going to need 5G", Koenig said. That will include things like low-latency mobile broadband in your auto. We're talking way more than heart rates or step counts, think health tags that can disappear into various pieces of clothing, new devices that can monitor how healthy your hair is, or even a mod for your phone that can track blood pressure, SPO2 and more.
