The Internet of Things

CES goes beyond product announcements. One gets a benchmark of where AI and technology as a whole are heading. 5G, IoT and connectivity took center stage this year, while companies such as Baidu, Google and Amazon have really taken over the smart speaker interface in recent times, catching up in consumer AI. Manufacturers will be demonstrating ways in which IoT can improve everyday life.

How 5G Promises to Change the World

Building 5G into IoT has long been an aim of 5G proponents, and while 5G networks are fairly new, we usually get to see a few concept devices at CES a year or two before they become available. With the 5G trend, we are expected to see innovations in wearables, voice-tech and earbuds that become more useful and smart with ever advancing noise cancellation features. Companies like Walmart has adopted AI into its strategy and is already bringing technologies like augmented reality and robots to the shop floor to keep up with the innovation-eccentric cultures of companies like Amazon and Alibaba. 

5G integrate new levels of connectivity and China is considered as the world’s biggest rollout of 5G technology.  In its 13th Five-Year Plan the government describes 5G as a “strategic emerging industry” and “new area of growth,” and in its Made in China 2025 plan, which outlines its goal of becoming a global manufacturing leader.

The era of surveillance capitalism

The lines have blurred between smart gadgets and surveillance operations as facial recognition, data tracking and healthcare related data points begin to emerge. CES is a great opportunity for the manufacturer of facial recognition technology to demonstrate to the public how this kind of AI can improve daily life. This trend will also strongly favor the current technology companies such as Amazon, Alphabet, Huawei, Alibaba, Xiaomi, Samsung, Apple and others.
