Alexa’s voice was heard above all others at CES 2018

Campaign recently published this article by our Innovation Director, Tom Ollerton, looking at the hype around voice tech at this year’s CES event and why brands need to rethink their gender approach to voice assistants. They’ve been kind enough to let us reproduce it below. CES welcomed more than 170,000 attendees this year and yet had no women presenting the top keynotes. A quarter of all other speaking slots were taken by women, so it’s not hard to see why this kicked off a social media backla...

CES sucked this year

 I’ve heard tell of people predicting the weather through achy joints. CES isn’t all that different. You get a sixth sense about the show once you’ve been to a few.
