Reference News Network reported on January 9 that Japanese media said that the world's largest digital technology exhibition "2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES)" opened on January 7 in Las Vegas, USA. Judging from the pre-publication for the media starting on January 5, in many industries, the source of added value is shifting from hardware to software.
"Nihon Keizai Shimbun" reported on January 8 that in the 1970s, the development of globalization was supporting the advancement of science and technology. Apple of the United States has maximized its role as an Asian partner company headed by Taiwan's Hon Hai Precision Industry, and has rapidly expanded its business.
It is reported that the well-known American venture capitalist Mark Andreson published an article entitled "Software Eats the World" in the "Wall Street Journal" in 2011, which caused heated discussion. The "softwareization" of the source of added value shifting from hardware to software has become a major trend in the second decade of the 21st century and is accelerating.
The report pointed out that at CES, after 2017, Google in the United States showed a large-scale product equipped with voice AI, and Chinese companies such as Alibaba had fierce competition with Amazon.
"The next 10 years will connect billions of things and analyze data to provide smarter services," said Andy Jacy, CEO of Amazon's cloud computing business in the United States. The new generation of communication technology 5G will become the foundation, and analysis will be realized by AI in the near future.
According to reports, during the briefing on the 5th, South Korea's Samsung Electronics released new products such as vertical screen TVs, and its executives said that "Google and Amazon are our partners." LG Electronics announced at a press conference on the 6th that it will strengthen the AI foundation for self-developed home appliances, and at the same time deepen cooperation with Google's voice AI to strengthen business through "two-line operations."
It is reported that the common issue facing Samsung and LG is how to position the company in a rapidly changing market environment. On the 6th local time, Toyota Motor held a press conference. Sony also announced measures to strengthen the semiconductor business and 5G-related technologies and services.
