Every year around this time, the Consumer Electronics Show, known as CES, sprawls across Las Vegas, bringing with it hints of what’s next in technology — the exciting and the weird. Some of what’s on display will never make it to market, but a lot of it will eventually find its way into your living room, or into your pocket or purse.

Tech expert, and intrepid CES-watcher, Omar Gallaga, says while he isn’t at CES in person this year, he’s noticed a few dominant trends as he follows it from afar: 5G technology; robots and automation; and artificial intelligence, or AI.

“AI is in everything,” Gallaga says. “AI is going to be getting ‘consumerized’; they’re using that as a word for a lot of consumer tech products that didn’t have [AI] before.”

What you’ll hear in this segment:

– Whether AI is useful in all tech products

– How TV technology is evolving, and what’s worth buying

– What’s new in pet-related technology
