CEA Examines the Future of Consumer Technology in Five Technology Trends to Watch
ARLINGTON, Va. --(Business Wire)--
The Consumer Electronics Association (News - Alert) (CEA)® today released
the 2014 edition of Five Technology Trends to Watch, an annual
publication that examines five prominent technology trends that will
influence the consumer electronics (CE) industry in the years ahead. The
publication was released today during a panel discussion at CEA's
Industry Forum in Los Angeles, a three-day conference designed to inform
and connect CE industry leaders.
This year, Five Techs examines key technology trends from the
Internet of Things (IoT) to driverless cars, digital health care,
robotics and the future of video distribution and consumption. Geared
toward industry professionals, this publication provides in-depth
analysis and outlines related issues and market forecasts for the coming
year. Each section also explores consumer perspectives, partnerships,
key players and public policy issues.
"A Hundred Billion Nodes" looks at how the IoT is using vast webs of
information to "learn" consumer habits and needs and enrich our lives.
As more digital devices replace their analog forbearers, there are
growing opportunities for electronics to take over many of the analog
tasks now handled by humans. "There is an implied assumption that the
Internet of Things will bring greater productivity," writes CEA's Chief
Economist Shawn DuBravac.
Meanwhile, CEA's Senior Manager of Business Intelligence Jack Cutts
looks at where the major auto makers are in testing and refining their
driverless vehicles, and the lega and social implications of ceding the
open road to science in "On the Road to Driverless Cars".
"The technology industry is always changing, evolving and innovating and
this report provides crucial insight into the trends that are
revolutionizing our lives and impacting our future," said Gary Shapiro (News - Alert),
president and CEO of CEA. "Using exclusive CEA market research, the
trends highlighted in this report show promise and hold significant
potential in the marketplace."
Five Technology Trends to Watch is a special supplement to CEA's
bi-monthly flagship publication, It Is Innovation (i3).
