CES 2016: Smart homes, smart cars, virtual reality – CNBC

Intel — which is aiming to be a big player in IoT — will officially kick off the event with a keynote from CEO Brian Krzanich on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. ET.

“Intel’s innovations, which power tablets, wearables, PCs, smart cars, homes, appliances, cloud computing and so much more are serving as the foundation for the burgeoning Internet of Things,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association, which sponsors the event.

The big challenge companies face in this space will be selling consumers on the idea of the digital home.

Each will try to differentiate its smart home offerings based on the seamless nature of the user experience and, increasingly, on security. Expect new partnerships to be announced with content creators, financial services companies and e-commerce players.

“We are reaching an inflection point in this whole journey in which the consumer experience, the digital technologies and the sensor technologies are all coming together,” said PriceWaterhouseCoopers principal Shahid Ahmed.
