The new year has arrived, and with it comes the migration of tens of thousands of tech engineers, executives, analysts, media and other industry watchers to Las Vegas for the largest tech trade show of the year — CES. The show runs from Jan. 9 to 12.
While auto shows are the primary platform for manufacturers to show off their latest vehicles and detail short-term product plans, CES has become the forum for bombastic announcements on future technology.
In 2017, we saw Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' Portal minivan concept and Toyota Motor Co.'s artificial intelligent assistant Yui, along with a string of announcements of partnerships between tech and auto companies.
This year, Ford, Nvidia, Intel and Baidu are expected to make announcements at the show, though the companies have been tight-lipped about their plans.
In the meantime, here is what we know to expect at CES 2018.
