The future of tech at CES 2024: AI, digital health, and a lot more

Thursday Apr 25, 2024 (00:16:07)


CES (formerly the Consumer Electronics Show) is a leading event that presents pioneering technology solutions that are shaping the future. CES is more than just a trade show; it is a platform where revolutionary technology is revealed, demonstrating the boundless potential of what technology can accomplish.

A significant aspect of CES is its commitment to accessibility and inclusivity. Technology is being developed to assist individuals with various disabilities, aiming to simplify their lives and enhance their quality of life. From products that augment mobility to those that boost sexual health, CES serves as a hub for state-of-the-art solutions that cater to a diverse array of needs.

Furthermore, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the organization that orchestrates CES, works tirelessly throughout the year. With a team of over 200 employees, the CTA conducts market research, advocates for pro-innovation tech policies, and develops technology standards that ensure interoperability and convenience for consumers. This behind-the-scenes work emphasizes the commitment to advancing technology and propelling progress in the industry.

Engaging young adults and students in the realm of technology is also a crucial part of CES. While the event primarily caters to industry professionals, there are initiatives such as guided tours and scholarship programs designed to inspire and educate the next generation of innovators. By introducing young minds to the possibilities exhibited at CES, there is potential to ignite interest and nurture talent in fields like engineering, medicine, and beyond.

AI at the forefront of CES 2024

Jim Fellinger from the CTA, joined us to discuss this year's event. At CES 2024, artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming healthcare in groundbreaking ways. Companies like Dassault Systems are revolutionizing the industry with their digital twin technology, which allows for the complete replication of the human heart. This technology enables researchers to conduct tests that would otherwise require animal or human subjects, leading to more efficient and ethical research practices.

AI is also being utilized to improve healthcare systems and the development of new drugs. By harnessing the power of artificial intelligence, companies are able to streamline processes, enhance patient care, and drive innovation in the medical field. The use of AI in healthcare is not only improving the quality of care but also revolutionizing the way healthcare professionals work.

While there may be concerns about the potential for AI to replace humans in professional settings, it is important to approach new technology with a healthy degree of skepticism. AI is not meant to replace healthcare professionals but rather to augment their capabilities and improve patient outcomes. By leveraging AI technology, healthcare providers can enhance diagnostics, treatment plans, and overall patient care.

Another example highlighted is the use of AI technology in agriculture, specifically in the development of a tractor that uses lasers to eliminate weeds and pests instead of pesticides. This innovation not only improves efficiency in farming practices but also has a positive impact on the environment and surrounding communities. By utilizing AI in this way, companies like John Deere are demonstrating how technology can be used to address important issues such as sustainability and environmental impact.

Conclusion: A big year for the tech industry at CES 2024

Some years, CES represents an incremental advancement for the industry. Other years, it represents an experimental year. For CES 2024, however, the event represented exponential growth across all industries that touch on the tech world. With the power of AI at the forefront, the next 12 months are going to be filled with new takes on old problems, and solutions to problems we didn't know we had.
