Elliott! Happy New Year. Thank you so much for your notes and walkthrough. Agree with all the comments here on impact of learning and the enormous opportunity. We've already seen the impact of health tech, gaming or virtualization & simulations on learning. Can you say some more about the connections you see with transport, vertical aviation, etc.. you mentioned?
Well done Elliott. Professional as always. Will be tuning in. You never disappoint. Thank you for the journey you will take us on.
As a member of SAG AFTRA, I will be attending on Thursday (virtually). AI is of particular interest to us especially in how it is shaping and changing our industry, and how we need to navigate its impact on us performers.
In the learning world, it will be about how I can use some of these new technologies to enable and encourage continuous learning and development. It's going to be fun...
Elliott! Thank you so much for your Day One walk through video at CES. I too have never been to a CES show. It's fun to live it vicariously through you. Did you use a mini drone to get some of those overhead shots? I also wonder how many of these "innovations" unveiled at CES make it to market so I appreciate the general themes that you've outlined. I see the impact of Learning everywhere in this show - from product design to marketing at the show (as Dana points out) to customer experience. So interesting...
Thanks Elliott. Love the "walk through" video. Having never been to CES the video gives me a feel for the experience. Looks like a lot of hands-on experiences AND that those manning the booths need to teach people quickly to keep them interested. That alone is an interesting learning challenge.
Shawn... Great question. What I have been amused about for the past decade is that the tech industry does not understand that consumers are ALREADY spending real dollars on learning - outside of work - for their careers, for their curiosity and for their families. Yet, retailers like Target do not have a sense that a Learning Products section. Disposable income is and will be spent on learning.
Thanks for these Elliott! Would love to have you expand on your comment on Learning Markets. Are you saying that the tech world doesn't realize that it exists, doesn't understand it, doesn't perceive it as meaningful in terms of revenue and investment?
