Undoubtedly the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the world’s most important exhibition dedicated to technological and electronic innovation for industry professionals and the public, is set to rock Sin City from January 9 to 12. Already, this edition seems to resonate with artificial intelligence. Cars, smartphones, next-generation laptops, headphones, cameras, washing machines – everyday objects are incorporating AI to offer new experiences, pointing to a new trend: embedded AI, directly integrated into devices, signaling that this technology is becoming widespread across all sectors and products.


The South by Southwest festival will take place in Austin, Texas, from March 8 to 12, 2024. It is one of the world’s largest gatherings dedicated to new technologies, and a prime venue to satisfy one’s curiosity about artificial intelligence. AI takes center stage at the event, alongside cinema, television, and music. In 2023, speakers like Amy Webb, Ian Beacraft, Kevin Kelly, Rohit Bhargava, and Greg Brockman addressed AI in their presentations. Bpifrance organizes an on-site mission for companies that will be rich in contacts and content.

While enthusiasm for artificial intelligence remains strong, ethical issues and the need to regulate the use of this technology are equally important.

They will discuss ethics, governance of artificial intelligence, and its opportunities at this global forum, under the patronage of UNESCO. An event to keep an eye on!
