The official CES 2018 dates are January 9th to 12th and here's what businesses and consumers can expect from the colossal conclave this year.

New sleep solutions also won't be limited to mattresses. Intelligent speakers, like Amazon's Echo and Google's Home, are "quickly becoming the core foundation of smart homes", he said.

For Google, CES 2018 is already turning into a watershed moment for its artificial intelligence. The smart-cities concept has been making the rounds at several tech shows, but what remains unanswered is when it will actually begin happening-and who will pay for it. Now what will be interesting is whether these companies are able to get away from the pack and offer some interesting features that will make their product stand out from the rest of the competition. Licensing and the promise of signing people up for services like Amazon Prime or YouTube Red are a huge potential revenue stream for these companies. Every. Second. That is a startling statistic and, paired with the fact that Google Assistant is now on nearly every Android device on the planet, Google Assistant's footprint is spreading rapidly. Some of you might even prefer the Windows integration of Microsoft's Cortana.

LG's new OLED TVs are made smarter with a touch of AI, and with Google's Assistant and Amazon Alexa built in.

What does it mean for a kitchen to be smart in 2017?

Change History In Ys VIII: Lacrimosa Of DANA On Nintendo Switch
Well, the time has come and fixes have been made, so the PC version is now scheduled for a global release on January 30. Publisher NISA confirmed a few hours ago that the game will finally release on Steam on January 30th.

But, that may not be enough to catch up and Google would really have to pull a rabbit out of its CES hat to make it happen.

Since then, the company has launched a refreshed line of Amazon Echo speakers, including a model created to make it easy for consumers to get started using Alexa to manage their lightbulbs, refrigerators and televisions.

Inventist, the mobility company based in Washington State that previous has released the Orbit wheels and Hovertrax mobility devices are showing off its latest invention, the connected IOTAtrax device. The massive four-day show officially opens Tuesday.

The galloping popularity of devices that respond to the sound of our voice will have a ripple effect on the smart-home market, spurring consumers to experiment with a host of new "smart" products - from connected thermostats, WiFi-connected security cameras, smart locks and doorbells and the like. Customers can also use voice commands to turn the mirror's embedded lights on and off, and tap into the rest of Alexa's skills, like asking for a weather report.

Among the big things to watch from this year's show: 5G wireless networks, improvements to Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri, and the rise of robotic companions.
