Have you ever heard of the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada? It is one of the most influential tech events in the world, where global innovators share breakthrough technologies and bring cutting-edge products – like artificial intelligence, robotics, cloud computing, and more! – to market.
This month, the U.S. Embassy led a group of 9 leaders from Pakistan’s technology companies to CES 2023 to explore business opportunities, network with Americans working in the industry, and gain deeper insights into best-in-class U.S. technologies that can help support Pakistan’s information and communication technology needs.
The “most influential tech event in the world.” That’s how the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) describes itself.
From January 5-8, the annual three-day event showcasing new trends and developments in the world of consumer technology will be held in the US city of Las Vegas. CES events take place at a variety of locations throughout the city, which is known for its casinos and gambling.
A Look at Solution-Focused Technology
While the CES has traditionally featured a variety of emerging technologies, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), which organizes the event, says that this year’s show will focus on technologies that could help solve the world’s biggest challenges.
They include environmentally friendly technology such as robots that dive into pipes to look for leaks.
“Globally about 30 billion cubic meters of clean water are lost due to leaks each year,” said Steve Koenig, vice president of research at the CTA, at a press event. Solutions like this may help find and fix leaks more quickly, according to Koenig.
This year’s hot topic is enterprise technology, or technology that aims to make businesses run more efficiently. The most notable innovations are those that allow humans to collaborate with robots.
