SMART CITIES
A new CES Marketplace, Smart Cities, showed a glimpse
of what the connected future will look like. Exhibitors like
Deloitte, Ericsson, Itron and the European Commission showcased tech that will improve infrastructure, energy use, transportation, public health, safety and quality of life. Together
they bring major CES themes to life with their technologies:
IoT, 5G connectivity, artificial intelligence and data analytics.
Companies like Ford are also tackling issues related to
increasing urban populations by focusing on creating reliable
self-driving cars and buses for a system-based smart city.
Conference sessions led by policymakers, city officials and
industry innovators covered other key issues including emergency preparedness and reducing waste.
See page 22 for an in-depth look.

5G

Warner Co., YouTube and Verizon shared
their visions for the future of technology.
And innovation was bursting from the
booths of more than 1,000 startups from
42 countries in Eureka Park, the home for
startups at CES. The unique Eureka Park
Marketplace encourages entrepreneurs
to share their ideas and passion with the
world, look for funding, and forge business
relationships. All of this combined to cement
CES as the largest, most influential technology event in the world. CES 2018 saw
several hundred government leaders attend
the show including one cabinet official,
9 members of congress and six international
ministers. As the global stage for innovation,
CES 2018 featured the latest in 5G, smart
cities, AI, sports technology, AR/VR and
other burgeoning technologies.

ON SPORTS BUSINESS
INNOVATION:

"What used to
take ten years to
change, takes one
year to change."

Connectivity was woven
into almost everything at CES.
From smart homes to smartphones and everything in
between, exhibitors showed
how the physical world will
be more connected to the
digital world than ever before,
thanks to the speed and
efficiency of 5G technology.
Larger data capacity, lower
latency, faster networks and
responsive speeds makes 5G
a catalyst for growth. These
connections will revolutionize
transportation systems with
self-driving cars, health care
through connected patientdoctor systems, cities with
smart capabilities, augmented/
virtual reality applications
and content, and entertainment innovation. During the
"Mobile Innovation: How 5G
will Enable the Future" keynote, executives from Baidu,
Qualcomm and Verizon agreed
that the technical revolution
pales in comparison to what
lies ahead for 5G mobility.
