CE Week 2018: Conference Program Looks at the Digitalization of Everything

Jaa

The internet of things, robotics, smart homes, wearables, broadband TV, personal electric transportation, connected cars – the world is digitizing and fast. Are you keeping up?

On June 20-21 some of the most influential minds in the emerging tech arena will gather at CE Week, New York City’s largest consumer electronics (CE) and technology event. They’ll be dissecting trends, forecasting hotbeds of activity and looking at the new crop of products that are quickly turning everything digital.

Without spilling all the beans, here’s a preview of what we’ll be discussing during the CE Week Conference Program:

IoT: What's in it for Me?

The Internet is on track to connect virtually everything. That path could create countless consumer benefits but will require overcoming challenges in connectivity and security. A panel of experts will examine where IoT is poised to have its greatest impact, and how it can enable a safer, smarter world.

Robots: From Roomba to Rosie

While the consumer market for robots is largely limited to toys and home cleaning machines, ever-more sophisticated robots are moving into tasks such as warehouse operations and food service. We discuss the growing role that robots are taking on behind the scenes and how home robotics are set to evolve.

Smart Homes: Opening Doors to Connected Product Suites

It's become almost trivial for companies to add smart voice integration to their products. But the growing sophistication of smart homes is fueling a market for integrated suites of sensors and new attention to home infrastructure. We look at the core of the smart home today and assess its value.

A Glance at the Future: Smartwatches and Wearables Target the Mainstream

Despite pockets of success, most companies in the smartwatch market continue to struggle with a product that relies mostly on notifications and health tracking. Still, the past year has seen major watch companies jump in and the category continues to see improvements in areas such as battery life, display brightness and versatility. In our panel, we'll look at the state of wearables and whether they can move beyond the early adopters.

Ready, Willing but Not Cable: How Broadband is Defining Home Entertainment

Every month, more consumers turn away from traditional pay TV subscriptions to an assortment of on-demand and increasingly linear options filled with billions of dollars' worth of original content investment. Broadband TV can be enjoyed nearly anywhere but consumers must navigate a fractured landscape that can pile on subscriptions. A panel of industry leaders will discuss the progress of broadband TV and how the customer experience can be improved.

Getting There from Here: Personal Electric Transportation and the Urban Commute

As cars go electric, the door has opened for a host of other products that can help get people around town. They range from battery-powered skateboards, scooters and e-bikes to one-person vehicles that all offer tradeoffs in size, weight, safety and ease of use. Meanwhile, many municipal laws still don't allow for many of these personal transporters. We’ll discuss the explosion in new forms of short-commute personal vehicles and how they might create new commuting options.

Driving to the Future: Cars Are Doing It for Themselves

Increasingly, cars are leaving the pump in favor of electric charging stations, one of countless destinations to which they are increasingly able to drive to themselves. We explore the timetable to autonomous vehicles, what will it mean for how consumers commute, and what opportunities such vehicles provide for the industry.

Other session topics include 5G, smartphones, digital health, and retail.

NEC Iris Recognition Technology Ranks First in NIST Accuracy Testing27.4.2018 05:00Tiedote

NEC Corporation (NEC) (TOKYO: 6701) today announced that its iris recognition technology achieved the highest matching accuracy evaluation in the recent Iris Exchange (IREX,*1) IX evaluations of automated iris recognition algorithms performed by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Iris recognition technology is a biometrics identifier that uses patterns from the iris, the donut-like tissue that surrounds the pupil. In recent years, this technology has been adopted by systems that require large-scale matching, mainly for organizations and companies, since it is possible to quickly provide highly accurate authentication with devices that do not require physical contact. From the standpoint of privacy protection and security enhancement, government agencies in particular are in growing need of reliable personal authentication for purposes that include citizen ID, immigration control and criminal investigations. NEC received the top accuracy ranking in the IREX

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited Statement on Telecom Italia26.4.2018 22:49Tiedote

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited (“Elliott”) today sent a new letter and a presentation to Telecom Italia (“TIM” or the “Company”) shareholders calling upon shareholders to uphold best practice governance principles at TIM’s upcoming shareholder meeting on May 4th. Inadequate governance and poor stewardship have imposed a heavy cost on TIM’s stakeholders for too long. Vivendi’s repeated missteps and self-serving behaviour have eroded the value of TIM’s shares and destroyed shareholder trust. The question being put to TIM shareholders on May 4th is: can you entrust your investment to Vivendi as long-term stewards of your capital and this company moving forward? Shareholders should take the opportunity to correct a governance structure rife with conflict and demand high quality and independent stewardship at the Board level. Shareholders have the opportunity to remove an otherwise permanent, persisting and pervasive impairment of value. This pivotal vote offers a textbook opportunity to put
