96: CES 2018 part 1 – Intel, Byton

It’s our third year covering CES from afar and there is so much content, we decided to break it up into 2 episodes! Part 1 covers some of the underlying tech driving the current wave of innovation in autonomous vehicles, immersive media and IoT hardware. We start with an in depth look at Intel’s 2 hour keynote covering everything from plug ‘n play AI, volumetric video and quantum computing. Byton is the latest Chinese competitor to Tesla and they showed off some impressive tech – but haven’t we heard this all before?
