CES always promises innovation and this year’s virtual only event did not disappoint. Startups brought cutting edge innovations in Health, Tech, and Entertainment, while big tech focused more attention on ethics and privacy.
The conference kicked off with acclaimed author Thomas Friedman sharing his thoughts on humanity's latest Promethean moment. His revelation is that tech has made everything we touch “fast, fused, and deep.”
In a fast world, skills need to be learned “just in time" not "just in case.” Education must be a fusion between traditional schools, apprenticeships, and workplaces. Humanity and machines must share values. Deep state, Deepfake, Deep research. "Deep" emerged in our everyday language without a “global lexicographer.” Friedman continued “We’ve seen technology going deep inside us, deep inside our systems, deep inside our bodies.”
