Tech Trends: First Glance at CES
Hello to “Notes” Readers from Las Vegas. First of all, Happy 2023!
We are at CES - the Consumer Electronics Show with almost 5,000 booths and tens of thousands of participants from around the world. As an accredited media person, day one was a first glance opportunity to look at some of the technology trends and innovations that will be featured this year. Each day, you will receive a briefing - covering the technology that might impact our workforces, workplaces and learning.
I am a Mind Mapper, so the graphic above reflects the presentations, observations and perspectives curated on the first day. And, here are quick notes about several of these:
Economic Shifts: Supply Chain Vulnerable, Semi-Conductor Demand Weakens, Labor Shortages Fluctuate and Global Concerns on Inflation
Health Tech Soars: Wellness, Lifestyle, Mental Health and Tech Meets Pharma.
5G Fever: Focus on Low Latency and Real Time Instancy
Cybersecurity Ecosystems Needed: Coping with 24/7 Risks
Gaming & eSports: 184 Million Gamers in US, Mobile Gaming Often 24 Hours a Week - eSports Grows as Combined Digital and Fitness Financial Model
Learning Market?: The tech world still does not get the enormous market for spending on learning by consumers throughout their lives.
Virtualization & Simulations: Innovations from Digital Twins to Deep Virtualizations of Work Processes.
Generative AI: Creating Content and Responses in Open AI Tech. Explosive interest from ventures and larger tech companies like Microsoft.
Technology Innovations Flow from Economic Downturns: Historically, as the economy burps there are significant tech innovations.
Global Nature of Tech Developers: The large percentage of the technology innovations are coming from around the world. Global reality!
Metaverse? Media & DIsplays - From VR to AR to Immersive: Will we call it a Metaverse? Will we have to wear Goggles? Open spectrum of opinions and market plugs.
Shows like CES are not the place to find a new version of a Learning System or Talent System. Head to shows in our field for those products.
We will focus on how technology MAY alter how our employees and customers interact, transact, transport, entertain and stay healthy. It is important for Learning and Talent Professionals to look at the larger impacts of technology in the 360 degree lives of people in our work world.
Today is filled with press briefings - stay tuned for a video summary of those gatherings. Tomorrow, I will be hosting a small group of learning leaders for a 8 mile walk around the technology. But, to give you a quick sense of the energy here at CES, I’ve edited a short video of the activities here:
