From the Blu-Ray Disc to the world’s first touch-screen computer, CES has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years — the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace.
From the 9th to the 12th of January 2018, the tech world, business leaders, pioneer thinkers, media and consumers will gather in Las Vegas for the 2018 edition of CES (formerly an acronym for the Consumer Electronics Show). With this year predicted to be a game changer in the world of technology, CES usually sets the standard for tech innovation for the rest of the year.
One of the key panel discussions drawing a mass amount of attention is on the next level of mobile innovation: 5G, and how it will enable the future. Another key development to look out for this year which will be revealed at the event is digital health tech. From remote monitoring products, to wearables to diagnostic solutions, the health care industry is embracing new tools and technologies to enhance the patient experience.
Featured speakers include industry heavy weights, Richard Yu, the CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group, the chairman and CEO of Turner, A Time Warner Company, John Martin, and Dr Qi Lu, the vice president, group president and COO of Baidu.
The theme for this year’s event is “Whoa” and given the electric anticipation around some of the most innovative tech to date set to be released, we expect a healthy dose of “whoa” to be the outcome of this important event in the world of tech. — Business Writer/Wires.
