Can’t Stop the Global Innovation at CES 2018 - on DefenceBriefing.net

Despite a brief power outage at CES® 2018, global innovation persevered as more than 3,900 companies, including some 900 startups, spurred new business and partnerships across every major industry. The second and third days of the world’s largest tech event focused on 5G innovation, the future of video and reimaging the world of television. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)TM, CES 2018 runs through January 12 in Las Vegas, Nevada.



Keynotes

The revolution of 5G connectivity has been ubiquitous throughout the CES show floor. During the keynote, Mobile Innovation: How 5G will Enable the Future,” executives from Baidu, Qualcomm and Verizon discussed the ways in which 5G connectivity will transform industries, business models and society as a whole. All agreed that the technical revolution pales in comparison to what lies ahead for 5G mobility.

The Future of Video keynote, presented by MediaLink keynote panel featured leaders from 605, A+E Networks, Comcast, Discovery Communications, LionTree LLC, MARCO and YouTube to discuss how the business of streaming content is changing the landscape of the entertainment industry. “We’re not in the business of today,” said Nancy Dubuc, president and CEO, A&E Networks. “We’re always trying to guess - or second guess - what might be around the corner.” The panelists underscored the importance of mobile video and partnerships and how rapidly current business models are changing.

Wednesday’s keynote with John Martin, chairman and CEO of Turner, and Randy Freer, CEO of Hulu, featured a candid conversation with the content leaders and moderator, Matthew Garrahan, global editor of Financial Times. The conversation touched on several topics, including both companies’ pending mergers; competition among other networks and streaming services; other tech giants looking to enter the content creation space and how to best engage with the millennial cohort.

SuperSessions

With nearly 300,000 NSF of automotive exhibit space, the vehicle footprint at CES makes it the fifth largest stand-alone automotive show in the U.S. and self-driving vehicles are at the show in a big way. The Self-Driving Cars: The Future of Personal Transportation SuperSession featured executives from Nissan, Allstate and Baidu, as well as Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, spotlighting the changing attitudes and ideas on self-driving cars.

C Space Storytellers Series

The C Space Storytellers Series is where influencers and newsmakers share stories and case studies about the unique relationships between brands, entertainment and technology. Brand executives were on hand to highlight best practices in leveraging artificial intelligence, data and analytics and digital content to enhance the brand narrative.

Allan Thygesen, Google’s President of Americas, hosted Dean Evans, CMO of Hyundai Motors America and Keith Bryan, SVP Media, Engagement and Personalization of Best Buy on the C Space Storytellers stage to discuss how brands can win today’s consumers with more relevant, assistive and instant experiences.

Leaders from Knotch, Heineken, Belkin and Bank of America explored the pressing issue of industry standards for transparency. The group agreed that transparency standards need to continue for companies to create new expectations and trust with data agencies.

Executives from Disney are excited about new creative content possibilities, following the recent acquisition of 21st Century Fox. Disney is leveraging AI, AR, VR and robotics to transform the way stories are told. In 2017, the company introduced four new interactive experiences powered by the Google Home digital assistant using voice activation.

Executives from Oath: A Verizon Company announced its recent partnership with the NFL, allowing consumers to stream all four NFL playoff games beginning January 13, through the Yahoo Sports app regardless of carrier.

Sports Business Innovation

CES provides the perfect arena for sports technology advancements. The panel, Evolving the Content Ecosystem, featured prominent figures from some of the world’s top sport leagues and content producers. Moderated by Inside the NBA’s Ernie Johnson, the session explored different ways to deliver content to constituents and creative storytelling techniques to engage today’s fans.

Thursday’s session, Players Only: Bridging the Gap Between Fans and Athletes, featured former NBA players Chris Webber, Baron Davis, Isiah Thomas, Dennis Scott and WNBA star Elena Delle Donne. The session explored how athletes are using social media and other mediums to bring real conversations from the locker room to increase fandom and comradery.

Where Music and Technology Collide

During the session, Madison Avenue meets the Recording Studio, music, talent and venue executives discussed emerging partnerships between music and brands and how technology influences them and agreed that partnerships have now become a 360 storytelling opportunity.

The How Streaming Saved the Music Business panel, experts agreed that streaming music has increased revenue, number of listeners, and the collection of consumer data. This increase in data allows for a more customized experience, as well as an opportunity for consumers to be exposed to new artists.

Awards and Events

Selected by judges Gary Shapiro of CTA, Young Sohn of Samsung, Koichi Narasaki of Sompo, Scott Robinson of Plug and Play and Lars Rasmussen of Weav Music - the startups moving to the final round of competition at Sir Richard Branson’s Nekar Island in October are Revl, a 360 action camera that also sells smart editing as a service; Owlet, a baby sock that tracks heart rate and oxygen levels to prevent SIDS; and Power Ledger, a centralized energy system that pays consumers for generating electricity.
