Consumer Electronics Show Preview

hwms.coverart
 It’s a holiday for gratitude in the United States but a holiday for data in the rest of the world.

Ok. They now call it the “Consumer Technology Show” but it’s the same old event. New technology. Lots of talks. Entrepreneurs desperately trying to move their ideas from intellectual conception to money making product.

So what are the bit themes this year? Similar to last year. Machine Learning. Data. Environmentally friendly. (Which may mean the start of the long goodbye to Bitcoin). Autonomous control. Security. Privacy. Security. Privacy. And for one last time, Security and Privacy.

Our podcast team is preparing our new technology for the 2019 show. Our prior entries have generated more heat than light, but that true of most exhibits at the show.
hwms.coverart Before we release it to the public, you might want to review one of our earlier products “Rohit’s Autonomous Drone Late Delivery System.” It actually got some interest from investors, though they were investors who did not quite Rohit’s accomplishment in draining Lake Mead and filling it with high quality coffee.

Cast:

  • Sulley from Policy – Josh LaForce
  • Karen from the Parents’ Committee – Debbon Ayer
  • Becky from the Parents’ Committee – Zoe Anastassiou

How to See the Consumer Electronics Show

hwms.coverart What should you see at CES? Or perhaps more to the point, how should you see CES? It is a massive show and is not easy to grasp, even when you are standing in the midst of it.

In this episode, we bring back our good friend (and in this case, real friend) Tom Coughlin to talk about how you should look for trends at the Consumer Electronics Show. Tom is a familiar figure at the CES and is an organizers of the International Conference on Consumer Electronics.

In this episode, he is joined by two cast members (who are real to us, but perhaps not in the same way), Sulley, the Policy Director and Jameela, the Manager of our Bangalore Office, to talk about the most important new technologies. (And, it appears, none of them are autonomous drone based coffee delivery systems.) Augmented Reality is probably on the top of the list, followed by Machine Intelligence and Virtual Reality. Tom explains.

Cast:

  • Sulley, from Policy – Josh LaForce
  • Jameela, Bangalore Office Manager – Sonam Powar
  • Himself – Tom Coughlin

CES 2018: Automotive Cybersecurity

hwms.coverart

Not only does it have to be good, it has to be secure. That’s the problem. And it’s now the problem with everything. Everything including cars.

It’s such an issue, that the ICCE, the Engineering Conference on Consumer Electronics, is devoting its entire session to cybersecurity.

To bring attention to the important issues of automotive electronics, we have invited retired Formula 1 Champion Mario Sciocco to talk about his experiences with Automotive Cybersecurity. And to offer a bit of advice, just a bit, to our cast.

Cast

  • Rohit from IT – Noah Masur
  • Anna the Intern – Sarah Corbyn Woolf
  • Mario Sciocco, F1 Champion – Ron Bianchi

Retrospective: CES 2017 & The Trillion Shot Latte

hwms.coverart

The story of the 2017 CES was drones. Drones to deliver packages. Drones to inspect oil pipelines. Drones to follow traffic. Drones to spy on you neighbor. One company offered drones to bring the last remnant of paper mail to beleaguered offices. Another upped the ante by suggesting that drones could bring food to those office workers who were either chained to their desks or intent on impressing their bosses with their dedication to work. The IT director of the podcast HWMS, Rohit, went one step further with his Autonomous Drone Latte Deliver System (ADLADS). Prior to the 2017 CES he demonstrated the system by draining Lake Mead and filling it with the trillion shot late.

  • Anna the Intern – Sarah Corbyn Woolf
  • Bix the Master Scrum Master – John C. Havens
  • Tourist 1 – Debbon Ayer

hwms.coverart

What should you see at the Consumer Electronics Show? What are going to be the great cutting edge technologies that will shape the next 5 years of consumer products. We get some ideas from our special Tom Coughlin, who is one of the organizers of the technical side of the CES conference. Tom joins podcast staff members Sulley, the Policy Director and Jameela, the Manager of our Bangalore Office, to talk about the most important new technologies. (And, it appears, none of them are autonomous drone based coffee delivery systems.) Augmented Reality is probably on the top of the list, followed by Machine Intelligence and Virtual Reality. Tom will explain.

17010: The Trillion Shot Latte: Drone Delivered Coffee @CES

hwms.coverart

We’re not in any of the main exhibit halls at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show.   Raytheon or someone like that got there first. We didn’t make it into the rump group at the Sands Hotel.   However, we were able to secure a nice place in the parking lot next to the Sanchez Family Taco truck.  We also were able to plan a podcast demo for the Hoover Dam: The Worlds Largest Drone Delivered Latte every witnessed on a podcast.  You’ll hear about it on this episode.
