CES 2023
The booths and exhibits at CES 2023 are still under construction, but I've been walking the show floor for the past two days and talking to product managers while my team has attended official press conferences. Many of the most exciting announcements are under embargo until the show officially opens tonight, but here are a few interesting items with far-reaching implications. Continue Reading →

CES 2023 Pre-Show News

Greetings from Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas. CES® 2023 begins this week, and Las Vegas is starting to get busy. I walked the show floor (all of it) yesterday afternoon, and you can call it the "New CES." Continue Reading →

How Far Can AI Go?

Lensa - shelly palmer
If you haven't already uploaded your 10-to-20 selfies to Lensa and let it turn you into a superhero, or a rock star, or an astronaut, you should give it a try. It's fun, but it's also instructive. You'll learn about the type and quality of inputs generative AI needs in order to obtain satisfactory results, and you'll experience the workflow and process of consumer-grade generative AI. But most importantly, when the model transforms you into a mystical creature in a cosmic setting, or an anime character, or a cyborg, you will find yourself asking one question: How far can this technology go?
