What's the hottest thing in the world of technology these days?

The InstruMMents company will unveil a new smart lamp called Olie that responds to commands through the Google Assistant or Amazon's Alexa. Samsung's Bixby has a following of its own, and Apple's Siri is built into MacBooks and iOS devices.

Last year, one of the clear winners of CES was Amazon, which was quite impressive when you consider that the online shopping giant didn't actually have an official presence or booth at the show. One example in this regard is South Korean tech giant LG, which is expected to debut an advanced television set operated by Google Assistant, one of the leading artificial intelligence devices now in the market; in fact, quite a few other tech firms plan to incorporate Google Assistant into their products.

Since then, the company has launched a refreshed line of Amazon Echo speakers, including a model created to make it easy for consumers to get started using Alexa to manage their lightbulbs, refrigerators and televisions.

Another tech firm incorporating artificial intelligence is HiRide, which will introduce a mountain bike suspension system capable of interpreting road conditions for the objective of providing a smoother ride. The Consumer Technology Association is right there with you.

LG's new concept robots have their moment in the spotlight and The new Panasonic Lumix GH5S mirrorless camera is introduced.

About a dozen self-driving vehicles from automakers like Ford, Mercedes-Benz and Nissan will be at this year's show. There are also conference sessions devoted to high-tech retailing, including the importance of collecting and analyzing data on customers. It can also be integrated with other smart devices in the home, such as smart hair dryers. That could mean checking what's left in your fridge from the grocery store, for instance. They found the protective molecules in more than 65 percent of the people they examined.

As more devices get connected, there's greater concern for security. We should even see the debut of a brand new auto brand named Byton, which could become another Tesla competitor, or could turn into the next Faraday Future. "I don't think there has been a more exciting time to be working in this industry". The trade group expects similarly stratospheric numbers this year, with unit sales approaching 44 million in the US alone. Lyft's co-founder and president, John Zimmer, will speak at the annual Leaders in Technology dinner Thursday night, a high-profile show event where he's likely to tout the ride-hailing company's autonomous efforts. Many sets will come with voice controls. Don't expect new iPhones or flagship Galaxy models. Check. Personal computers? Check. There will also be virtual-reality and augmented-reality technologies, some aimed at sports fans who want to feel they're more part of the game. Its usage is increasing in mobile and wearable devices.

There should also be no shortage of flying drones overhead and scurrying robots underfoot.

One of the stars of the show is this little robot.

TV maker LG's OLED Canyon display demo, with 246 OLED panels and more than 30 high-definition generators, took almost an hour to get back in full operation.

Of course, some of us use more than one. Phones that can take advantage of 5G won't be around for a few more years. The technology will be a predominant theme at CES. "That really wasn't apparent two or three years ago". "The tech industry and every industry must do better".
