At the world’s largest technology trade show, gadgets are getting smarter, and not because of the latest computer chips. It’s coming from the things you do and the data you share, which will drive the next phase of innovation, according to experts attending the International Consumer Electronics Show. ”The next step is the age of inference,” said David Lieb, chief executive of Bump, a mobile app developer, during a panel discussion. “The computer is going to figure out what I want to do before I even think about it.” Bump’s latest app, Flock, will try to figure out which photos users want to share, and with whom, based on their what they’ve done previously, among other things. ”Mobile will enable all of these apps to kind of flip, and instead of me telling the app what I want it to do, the app will suggest to me, “Hey you might want to leave for your meeting down at the end of the strip because there’s a lot of traffic,” Lieb said.
