CES 2020 '더 크게더 화려하게더 퍼스널하게'

 

 

SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) ― The screens will be bigger and bolder, the cars will be smarter and some of the technology will be up-close and personal ― even intimate.

The 2020 Consumer Electronics Show opening in Las Vegas will be crammed with the latest in connected devices, from light bulbs to underwear, along with the newest technology for automobiles, health and wellness, smart homes and more.

 

One of the world's biggest trade shows, the gathering features 4,500 exhibitors, an estimated 175,000 attendees, and 1,000 speakers in exhibit areas equivalent to more than 50 football fields.

Small startups and large tech firms from dozens of countries will be angling for a slice of the trillion-dollar-plus global consumer electronics marketplace.

The show, organized by the Consumer Technology Association, will see a large presence from tech giants such as Google and Amazon, vying for leadership in providing the "brains" or digital assistants for many smart products.

 

With improvements in artificial intelligence (AI), digital voice assistants are becoming smarter and more like humans, opening up new possibilities, said Simon Forrest of Futuresource Consulting.

"We can see devices that can now sound happy if your favorite football team has won and… dejected if your mother is at the door," Forrest said.

While the long-sought goal of "emotional intelligence" in computing is still far from reality, he said, advances are allowing more computing power to be packed into smaller spaces including smart eyeglasses, in-ear "hearables" and other devices.
