At CES 2017, I was expecting a classic technology shifts, thus thinner and larger screen, even smarter home — yes, there was also smart bed and also that the stickers will change from 4G to 5G. This will make our hyper connected world with minimal delays in data transmission in the future, enabling such things as streaming of virtual reality in real time. Match from the perspective of Jaromir Jagr Junior transmitted directly to your virtual reality glasses would be cool. However, low latency also allows remote surgery, where every millisecond of delay plays a crucial role. 5G will be crucial for future full utilization of autonomous vehicles, because cars will be able to interact not only with each other but also with cyclists and pedestrians.
The Automotive industry in my opinion clearly demonstrated that the next big game changer will there, especially thanks to cooperation with other industry verticals. For example, a graphics cards manufacturer NVIDIA introduced their collaboration with Audi on autonomous vehicles. The result will be a AI platform for autonomous vehicles that could perhaps be also in Škoda cars. Amazon, mainly its digital assistant Alexa, stopped runaway car industry and settled first in Ford cars. So classic evening conversation with a refrigerator or television will be: “Alex, ask Ford if I had locked it.” Honda unveils at CES, the concept of electric car designated for the increasingly popular car sharing.
Well anyway I’m already looking forward to the time when I’ll shout on shared capsules from car companies to park in front of L’Fleur bar and pick me up in a couple of hours together with my groceries.
