Artificial Intelligence At Home: CES 2018
On the eve of the official opening, CES brought together journalists and technology stakeholders for two days to let them know about the trends of this edition, among which the artificial intelligence, which is installed in homes and cars, has stood out.

Its technological director, I. P. Park, assured that the platform will revolutionize the way in which we use things as common at home as a refrigerator or a television, which will communicate and “learn” from their owners. “You will not have to study instruction manuals anymore,” he said.

Televisions, the flagship product of consumer electronics, increasingly reach higher qualities in fewer dimensions and for the two Asian firms will play a central role in homes thanks to its support of artificial intelligence.
LG introduced new OLED and UHD televisions with more powerful processors that can be integrated with Google Assistant or Amazon’s Alexa, while Samsung showed “The Wall”, a flat TV that has microleds and a custom size by the client.
