CES 2016

CES® 2016 held at UCLA Anderson

Technology advances so rapidly you almost don't notice how much of the driving your car is doing on its own! And even the new models of consumer electronics are the product of last year's work ­- what companies are working on now isn't available yet. How are the sensors in my wearable devices, my smart home and connected car changing my lifestyle? Will Virtual Reality help me work more productively? Can I trust myself to be driven in a self-driving car? Will I be able to watch my favorite shows on my mobile device on high speed networks? That's where the CES® 2016 comes in -­ an annual event held in Las Vegas that showcases the top consumer electronics companies. But unless you fly to Vegas there's no way to enjoy the newest tech innovations and ideas.

Over 300 students, alumni, and professionals attended CES® 2016, held at the UCLA Anderson School of Management on January 14th, 2016. The program included talks and panels by invited industry professionals, faculty, and students, on topics addressed at the CES®2016 in Las Vegas. The themes for this event included Internet of Things, Smart Home, Connected Car, Streaming Video and High Speed Networks, Sensors and Wearables, Virtual Reality, and Drones.

Over 400 people attented the exhibition of displays, featuring the hottest new technologies. The event culminated with Anderson Afternoons, a networking reception sponsored by the Easton Center.
