Key takeaways

  • As one of the largest tech events in the world, the 2024 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) made one thing clear: tech is accelerating innovation across all sectors. We highlight key recurring themes observed by BofA Global Research analysts in attendance at this year's show, but in short, and perhaps unsurprisingly: artificial intelligence (AI) continued to dominate discussions – however, such discussions are now moving from concept to commercialization.
  • From automotive to agriculture, several tangible products and commercial applications for AI were demonstrated across home, work, heavy industry and mobility, with a combination of advances in simulation, computer vision and sensor fusion as key enablers to commercializing AI beyond digital to include physical applications.
  • And don't forget electric and autonomous vehicles – mainstays at CES. This year's show was no exception, highlighting "software defined vehicles," autonomous industrial equipment, and even several "flying" concepts.
