Graeme Maguire, partner and global head of Tech and Comms at Bird & Bird UK, brings you the latest from this year’s CES tradeshow held in Vegas.

The product that really stole the show at CES2017 (at least in so far as its pervasiveness) was Alexa.

Amazon’s voice assistant has found her way into a vast array of the products, which I saw (either built in or through integration), from LG’s Smart InstaView Refrigerator (which plays music, lets you check whether you’re out of milk and shows you recipes) to Ford cars (allowing you to use voice control to turn on the heating and set your music playing before you even arrive back from work).

With the Global Intelligent Virtual Assistant Market is expected to reach $3.6bn by 2020, it looks like Amazon will be taking a substantial slice of that pie (a pie cooked in a voice controlled smart oven, of course).
