The most talked about tech at CES wasn't on display

Boston Herald

Each January when nearly two hundred thousand attendees descend upon Las Vegas for CES, the world's largest tech pilgrimage can overwhelm the senses with a myriad of sights and sounds emanating from 2.6 million square feet of new gadgets designed to delight savvy consumers. One can count on televisions to be bigger and thinner, appliances to be smarter, and personal computers to be faster. In all these categories, the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show's four thousand exhibitors did not disappoint. With 70- and 80- inch HDTVs so 2017, the largest screen display was a new modular 146" video wall that is perfect for any home with a blank nine-foot wide wall. Don't have a lot of space?

What does 2018 hold for the manufacturing industry?

#artificialintelligence

Some of the biggest players in the industry have already started to embrace disruptive and cutting-edge technologies, but this year we will see smaller and medium sized manufacturers incorporating the same technologies into their processes with equally as effective results. The entire industry is on the brink of an upheaval parallel to the industrial revolutions it has experienced throughout history – those that centered around technologies like steam-powered machinery and the linear assembly machine. The pending industrial revolution will be underpinned by a range of technologies that have already begun to pervade their way across the sector, such as 3D printing and artificial intelligence, and will continue to do so in 2018. See also: Combatting the manufacturing industry's skills gap Perhaps the most important technological shift we will see across the manufacturing industry in 2018 is the increasing adoption of genuine artificial intelligence by manufacturers of varied size across the sector. There is a distinction to be made between the ostensible ai (colloquially known as'lowercase' ai) that we have seen dominating the press throughout 2017, and the genuine AI (known as'uppercase' AI) that will be rolled out across the sector this year.

Big Bets on A.I. Open a New Frontier for Chip Start-Ups, Too

#artificialintelligence

For years, tech industry financiers showed little interest in start-up companies that made computer chips. How on earth could a start-up compete with a goliath like Intel, which made the chips that ran more than 80 percent of the world's personal computers? Even in the areas where Intel didn't dominate, like smartphones and gaming devices, there were companies like Qualcomm and Nvidia that could squash an upstart. But then came the tech industry's latest big thing -- artificial intelligence. A.I., it turned out, works better with new kinds of computer chips.


Where Major Chip Companies Are Investing In AI, AR/VR, And IoT

We dug into the private market bets made by major computer chip companies, including GPU makers. Our analysis encompasses the venture arms of NVIDIA, Intel, Samsung, AMD, and more. Recent developments in the semiconductor industry have been sending mixed signals. Stories about Moore's Law slowing have grown common, but analysts affirm that the latest crop of chips (specifically Intel's newest 10-nanometer technology) prove Moore's Law is still alive and well. Meanwhile, the vast application of graphics hardware in AI has propelled GPU (graphics processing unit) maker NVIDIA into tech juggernaut status: the company's shares were the best-performing stock over the past year.
