SPEAKER: Larry Chait, Managing Director, Chait & Associates, and Adjunct Senior Lecturer in the Executive Masters in Healthcare Management program, Brown University
TOPIC: It is somewhat of an annual tradition to ask Larry to re-cap the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. You can view his slides from 2014, best of CES presented by Larry Chait, here. Innovation in high tech has long been a staple of American ingenuity and a major driver in our economy. But CES is a global event and it is clear that the U. S. has no corner on the electronics industry. From acres of real estate in 2015 devoted to the really new, really big, and really pushing the envelope, Larry has captured some of the unique items from across the globe on display this year for us to contemplate. We can all join in with commentary on what we see as vital or highly desirable creations, and you are also invited to critique the truly absurd.
With the knowledge of hindsight, we might also reflect on past exhibits and what has flunked the test of the market or soared to unexpected adoption.
And this year, Larry has gone beyond CES. He’s been following other innovations - especially in healthcare, which he will be sharing with us.
