“What I’ve noticed is that you can have opportunities to have longer conversations and more interesting conversations with people than you might if it were as crowded as it usually is., says Tom Coughlin, President of Coughlin Associates. The above interview was filmed at a much quieter than usual CES, but, as Coughlin points out, it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for those who were there to experience this one-of-a-kind conference without the typical crowds.
The IEEE booth, where this interview was filmed, featured an interactive electronic scavenger hunt which was a fun way to test one’s knowledge of future smart cities and their associated infrastructure.
