2013 International CES eröffnet als Messe der Rekorde

Die 2013 International CES® öffnete heute ihre Tore und mit über 3.250 Ausstellern auf rund 176 Tsd. Quadratmetern Nettoausstellungsfläche bricht sie die Rekorde des Vorjahrs für Fläche und Ausstellerzahl. Innovation war das zentrale Thema der diesjährigen Pre-Show-Presseveranstaltungen, die mit der CES Unveiled am Sonntagabend ihren Auftakt nahmen. Dort präsentierten 74 Unternehmen ihre neuesten Technologien, und im Rahmen des CES Press Day führten fast 30 Aussteller neue Produkte ein. Die Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® besitzt und produziert die 2013 International CES, die weltweit größte jährliche Innovationsveranstaltung, die heute beginnt und bis zum Freitag, den 11. Januar in Las Vegas im US-Bundestaat Nevada läuft.

„In dieser Woche werden auf der 2013 International CES rund 20.000 neue Produkte eingeführt. So freuen wir uns sehr, den Startschuss zu dieser Messe zu geben, die alle Rekorde der Vergangenheit in den Schatten stellt,“ kommentierte Gary Shapiro, President und CEO der CEA. „Die CES ist ein unglaubliches Ereignis: Alle bedeutenden Technologieunternehmen aus aller Welt stellen auf der diesjährigen CES ihre Innovationen zur Schau.”

Der Chairman und Chief Executive Officer (CEO) von Qualcomm, Dr. Paul Jacobs, hielt am Montagabend die Pre-Show-Keynote und stellte in seiner Rede die Wurzeln des Unternehmens im Mobilgerätebereich heraus. „Wir sind im Kern der Mobilgeräte, die bei all Ihren Aktivitäten eine zentrale Stellung einnehmen“, so Jacobs. Während seiner Rede kam der Microsoft President und CEO Steve Ballmer auf die Bühne und führte Microsoft Windows-Produkte mit integriertem Qualcomm Snapdragon 10-Prozessor vor. Der Snapdragon 800 ist ein Spitzenprozessor für Tablets, Smartphones und vollausgestattete PCs und ermöglicht die effektive Nutzung von LTE, ultra HD und 7.1 Surround.

Der Veranstaltung wohnten etliche Stars bei und die Vorschauen von zwei Filmen, die bald ins Kino kommen, wurden erstmals gezeigt. Als Prominente hatten der Regisseur Guillermo del Toro, Brad Keselowski und Marc Jenkins von NASCAR, die Schauspielerin Alice Eve (Star Trek Into the Darkness ) und Scott Chambers sowie Bibo aus der Sesamstraße ihren Auftritt. Zum krönenden Abschluss der Veranstaltung spielten Adam Levine und zwei weitere Mitglieder der mehrfach mit Platin und dreimal mit einem Grammy Award ausgezeichneten Band Maroon 5.

Die Pre-CES-Presseveranstaltungen starteten am Sonntagabend mit CES Unveiled: der offiziellen Presseveranstaltung der CES. 74 Aussteller lösten einen Ansturm der Medien aus, der zu den größten in der Geschichte der Unveiled-Veranstaltung zählt. Unter den ausstellenden Unternehmen fanden sich 3M Touch Systems, Body Media, Canopy Co., Chevrolet, Fitbug, Goal Zero, HAPI Labs, House of Marley, Hz0, Liquid Image, Matrix Audio, Parrot, Synaptics und Urban Hello. Wichtige Trends waren u. a. ultra-HDTV, Hybrid-Tablets, flexible Touchscreen-Display-, Apps- und mobile Lösungen.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
