Techies and gadget geeks alike have been discussing it foyears already, yet artificial intelligence made genuine waves in 2018, showing up prominently in popular culture and our ordinary gadgets.
With organizations like Apple, Google, Amazon, and Microsoft investing millions in AI, this will ultimately make it one of the major themes to look out for at the annual Consumer Electronics Show, which kicks off in Las Vegas one week from now.
CES is a chance to showcase the customer use for that innovation, such a large amount of what will be shown are “smart” devices or “smart” products – take, for example, this smart bathroom with voice-enabled lighting innovation.
While there are dozens of players in the AI space, we can expect that Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa will going to dominate the show this year. Both voice assistants are perfect with in excess of 10,000 devices, which – as Wired noted – will make the showroom floor quite noisy.
We’ll additionally observe littler players present even more smart gadgets and other AI-powered gadgets you would and wouldn’t expect, everything from TVs to surveillance cameras, and even golf equipment. AI is likely to appear in every home product imaginable as well, from refrigerators to ovens to smart locks – Amazon already put it in a microwave, after all. Oh, and don’t forget cars.
However, the utilization for AI stretches out past regular consumer goods. Artificially intelligent robots will effortlessly roam the show floor, and keynote speakers will make the case that robotics and AI could help take solve the world’s most complex issues. There’s even an occasion entitled “Creating Tomorrow’s Robotic Caregivers” displaying exactly how important tech’s relationship with health is becoming – toward the end of last year, for example, Optum, a healthcare organization inside UnitedHealth Group, reported it’s utilizing AI to enable doctors to answer complex patient questions.
Past AI, we’re hoping to see huge amounts of new gadgets – and likely a significant number shocks from the organizations behind these electronics – at the current year’s show.
