The Next Innovative Wave Of Connectivity
Just about every offering promoted at the CES, impacts the industry of telecommunications. As the fake becomes more and more real, technology is forced to develop radical solutions to detect and prevent digital fraud and manipulation. While there are significant advantages for consumers and corporations within the digital environment, there are the disadvantages that exist demanding protection and security of one’s identity. At the CES, Machine Learning, Forensic Technology, and Artificial Intelligence were keynotes in supplying effective solutions to fraud.
Oh, But Wait, There’s More
Smartphones and 5G Technology
5G technology is much more than providing faster data speeds and lower latencies. All of the major US telecommunication providers have pledged to roll out this innovation this year with many devices on display at CES already 5G-enabled. Promising to transform everything, this wireless technology will embrace artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and robotics. This will impact drones, travel, healthcare, media, entertainment and more.
AR and VR Are In The Family Way
By all means, AR and VR are having a baby! They plan to name him XR. XR amalgamates enhanced, mixed and/or simulated realities, to produce data that crosses three dimensions instead of two. Once thought as amusement and games related, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) will meld itself into the workplace for an immersive experience reaching beyond simple entertainment. The opportunities for businesses and consumers will be tremendous. Industries like healthcare, sports, real estate, marketing, and education will forever be changed. CES showcased this new science through head-mounted displays, haptic communication, 360 video, and full body tracking.
Self-driving cars, the intelligence platform that creates its own transportation ecosystem, will depend on cloud-based accuracy. Navigation apps, widely relied on, will become authoritative locality platforms. This technology transforms the driver and the vehicle. Autonomous transports will safely navigate to coded destinations while the driver can instantly become a passenger at the press of a button.
2020 promises to be even more exciting for CES.
