The news and highlights to expect from CES 2018

And in a sign of the huge energy draw from the tech show, once the crowds were let back in, the return to full, blazing electronic glory was slow.

"We lucked out", he said.

One of the word's largest gatherings for the technology industry, the Las Vegas-based convention will see more than 170,000 people attend, looking to see the latest innovations from the likes of Intel, Samsung and Sony.

Autonomous, electric, and final mile transport solutions have made headlines at this year's edition of the world's largest technology fair, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) held in Las Vegas, US, this week.

"A recent report from the Government Accountability Office found that 'there remains a persistent lack of racial, ethnic, and gender diversity in the technology workforce, '" CTA president and CEO Gary Shapiro and CES senior VP Karen Chupka wrote in their response to Gender Avenger founder Gina Glantz. LG also showed off its latest TV models, which are equipped with AI technology. Expect to see plenty of new smart home devices with inbuilt Alexa capabilities, while competitor Google is also expected to make some announcements around its own Google Assistant. For 2018, it's clear that trend is only getting bigger, especially now that Google has had a full year under its belt and a chance to push out another round of AI-powered devices.

For example, Slate today highlighted the return of a $980, clothes-folding robotic device called the FoldiMate, which it called "the most CES thing ever".




Artificial intelligence (AI) is set to be the overriding focus of 2018's show, which opens its doors on Tuesday 9th January, as companies scramble to piggyback on the extraordinary success of Amazon's Alexa digital assistant on a consumer level, and the incredible capabilities of Google's Deep Mind AI division in the field of scientific research.

One of the most significant and most prominent Tech conventions in the world started from coming Sunday in Las Vegas.

CES Tech West: Located at the Sands Expo and Venetian Hotel, The Palazzo, Wynn Las Vegas and Encore at Wynn.

There are many other companies which will introduce innovative gadgets at the event.

CES's AI obsession will also spread beyond consumer devices and into visions of smart cities and, of course, driverless cars. Its Eureka Park exhibition space, once a small corner of the main event, has grown significantly in size over a short period of time.
