CES 2018 highlights connectivity, voice and AI

Voice assistants and artificial intelligence were heavy areas of focus at this year’s CES, as was the connectivity making these technologies possible. Voice in vehicles drew particular attention, with Baidu Vice Chairman Qi Lu saying, “There will be no border between a home and a vehicle. Whatever you can do at home, you should be able to do it in cars.”
