Artificial Intelligence, 5G, and Internet of Things (IoT) will be the key technology trends at IFA – one of the most leading shows for home appliances and consumer electronics. It is Europe’s largest technology show that kicked off recently for a six-day run. It brings together nearly 2000 exhibitors before the major shopping season.
At this year’s event, major industry leaders will share their vision on 5G and how the improved connectivity can spur innovations at home and in the workspaces. South Korean tech biggies opened their booths to display various home appliances, the highest resolution 8K TVs, and smartphones connected to tap deeper into the European market. Leading smartphone brand said it is investing $22 billion in the new technologies such as AI, 5G, and IoT. This is to drive innovation in the fast-changing industry. This brand’s chief marketing officer said – “In Europe, this includes the Samsung AI Centre close to Cambridge University, which works to bring together the best talent in the world. The Samsung Internet of Things is not a thing of the future. It is now. 5G will enable connected living on a mass scale.”
A smaller local rival is all set out its own AI vision to showcase a wide range of connected home appliances that can detect problems in advance and make suggestions to their users. This brand’s chief technology officer said – “Anywhere is home because it’s that connectedness which allows you to carry the essence with you wherever you go. All these touchpoints can talk to each other and learn from each other to serve us much better. This connectedness will change how we organise and use our space as well.” - IANS
