tv   The Communicators CES 2018 Technology Show Part 2  CSPAN  February 5, 2018 8:00pm-8:48pm EST

8:00 pm
investigation. c-span, where history unfolds daily. in 1979, c-span was created as a public service by america's cable television companies. it's brought you today by your cable or satellite provider. >> here some interviews we have done. [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible]
8:01 pm
[inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] >> this is built as essentially an urban air taxi. you would request one of these to get a right now about 30 minutes -- listen to our.
8:02 pm
>> i would introduce you to company and gentleman named mike chen. >> i'm part of the automation division. on the engineering manager. >> it was a quick overview of the company. >> it's a global corporation and we specialize in technology that are meant to improve lives. >> and you have robots are galore out here. >> this is a robot used in an industrial factory environment application. this booth is meant to show the vision that we have where robotics are working in harmony with people. >> when you look in this, i'm assuming this is relatively old technology in here. >> the technology itself is up
8:03 pm
to the user. but it could be in new or used applications. >> this young gentleman here is a robot as well. >> this is bill, one of our mobile robots. it's safety rated for mobile vehicles that are low levels for improved productivity. >> and what is his function? >> he's meant to deliver minster our attendees. >> is he going to run to me? >> no. there safety rated so it follows all the safety ratings from europe and asia to america. >> what kind of technologies in this? part aim part motion what we do here is innovate in the technologies around ai and
8:04 pm
robotics swords navigating the map a user sets out force. if you want to program it to do something you teach at the map and that it finds its way around. >> you grab my foot. >> it is not like the foot there. so when you talk about ai being in here, the artificial intelligence, what does that mean? >> once we teach at a map you do not tell it how to get to point a to point b, it will intelligently navigate itself. whether there people in place where the obstacles. >> doesn't learn as it goes? >> it learns the best path over
8:05 pm
repetition. >> so you told her to go to point a to point b and you don't care how it gets there. it connected after the wait for we restricted it to the area. >> you can program it to go across the hall. >> absolutely. >> this is our catering robot spoke on the same platform that you said earlier. the same safety technology around it. the custom payload on top could be for more applications distributing water et cetera. >> where these products used at? >> and automation or hotel environments. we have one of these near an airport that's helping people with disabilities get their luggage and take it to a place
8:06 pm
for them. >> to see this in hospitals? >> there's another version of it that we can goats through an hour later the hospital there's pharmaceuticals. that being for specific access to nurses doctors and the patients. there's models that can securely deliver goods like pharmaceuticals to that person that i do take to make sure the right person is taken pharmaceutical. >> were demonstrated other technologies. the trend is mass customization they want technology to be personal whether it's automotive so this would be an example of that.
8:07 pm
>> here's my badge. for example, essay want something personal to. this is because of traceability. we want all of our products made custom for us now. technology working just for us. so if you want something personalized it could be a laser engraver that you want to barcode technology in this case a custom -- this is just for you. [laughter] so couple years ago at the show 3d printing was a big thing. >> we have used 3d printing as well, the overall purposes that humans and technology do mix. the human element is not lost on us. the machine did the work of the people to the creation.
8:08 pm
>> what's your day job? >> i interact with customers and find out what their needs are. >> so you have an engineering degree? >> i do. is it mostly online or through a computer? >> the interface is natural now. the human element is very important and how customer interacts. >> let's go back to the ai, what is this? >> this is corporation he is. it's a long acronym but overall it was the god of inspiration.
8:09 pm
this is a perfect illustration of what were trying to show here. technology between human and machine. >> is a learning how to play? >> it knows how to play it improves the game of the player so that the player can get as many rallies as possible. this is the first of its kind tutor. a robot that improves and expands the capability of humans. >> what's the purpose of this? >> a tutor robot for ping-pong. >> are we allowed to play? >> yes. >> you be looking at the ball
8:10 pm
but what you do at the bottom is this tells you your level to give you encouragement and challenge. 02100%. on the robot was see how you are doing and tried to give it back to you in the same way. >> okay that gentleman was at 91%. >> that's correct. i plan 45%. >> so the line is 45%. thank you. is he gonna serve? yes. >> oh my. okay. [inaudible]
8:11 pm
[inaudible] [inaudible] >> would you like to serve this time? sixty-six. [inaudible] [inaudible] >> what you see is it is not slamming it against you. >> what it's doing is trying to improve the number of rallies that you can get. >> will serve again.
8:12 pm
i will serve as hard as i can. so he's trying to help me. >> it is to expand on the human capability. [applause] let me try one more time. [inaudible] [inaudible] >> from the technology ask perspective you're looking at multiple robots and camera systems working together to improve your ping-pong game. >> multiple. >> multiple there watching you in the ball.
8:13 pm
>> whatever. >> very nice. what's the practical application of this? >> were not here to sell ping-pong robots. over here to show companies is that every business here are businesses we want to do business with. the technology is what we represent. the harmony between the human and the machine. this type of technology could be applied in the technology field and it could be applied for driver safety and vehicles the multiple applications in different areas. >> let's look at driver safety.
8:14 pm
>> this is a different application a very similar technology same amount of facial recognition. that and learning. >> what was seen on the screen? >> your seen eye tracking and people tracking. on pronounced us, we actually have this ocular reflex which means almost two minutes before we know are tired organist.was in coordination between our people center head movement. >> if you start to get drowsy or incapacitated the technology can detect that i'm an automaker can create different type of autonomous driving reactions to
8:15 pm
that. >> my car tells me i'm getting tired, is that this kind of technology? >> that's right. this reflexes innovation. it's not just looking at blanks it because you can change how often you blank. detection of your reaction speed. that part is what were showing. >> this is an amazing display. >> then you can see the head movement up there. if the correlation is high that's good. that means has your bouncing around you should stay focused. issues should be high.
8:16 pm
>> are car companies integrating this today? >> we keep our companies confidential but this is an 500 companies. >> so does this lead toward autonomous vehicles? >> correct. they can use our technology for that. absolutely. >> what type of people were care. all electrical engineers and mechanical engineers? >> what were passionate about his technology and applying that to society's challenges. the people are engineers, mechanical, ai electrical engineers, the people that support. >> are you finding there's enough people, provide your
8:17 pm
japanese company. are you finding there's enough people qualified to work? >> we have a lot of investment in the americas. we have engineers from all around the world, the nation. were going in the united states or hiring here in the united states. >> thank you for this to her. [inaudible] [inaudible]
8:18 pm
[inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible]
8:19 pm
[inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible]
8:20 pm
>> it's photography that can be used for other professional applications like power lines rather than having to go up and down a cherry picker. [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] it's a new technological
8:21 pm
category if you have places where they can access it -- [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] >> it cost about $5 and can be done quickly online.
8:22 pm
even if you go through a certification process. [inaudible] [inaudible] is a regulatory challenge of the technological challenge. in terms of technology need longer endurance if you're beyond the line of sight and then it's highly restricted. you cannot fly beyond --
8:23 pm
[inaudible] there are challenges between where technology is and where the companies wanted to be. [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible]
8:24 pm
[inaudible] [inaudible] we looked at how can we make these some cases even the cameras. [inaudible] they could go up to ten or $12000 the camera could be upwards of 30,000 dollars.
8:25 pm
[inaudible] this is a big application. [inaudible] [inaudible] this is up on your phone. that's a matter of activating facebook live in your ready to start streaming. [inaudible] my background was in filmmaking many years ago. is live in a nation doing government policy work. i was excited about the technology someone asked if i wanted to work for this high-tech company is us an american company.
8:26 pm
>> they can be as her tv shows in production. you name it. [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible]
8:27 pm
[inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible]
8:28 pm
[inaudible] >> where the consumer electronic show and we've seen several drones in the air. now we want to show that goes underwater. this is by the company where. >> will be seen here? >> this is the underwater drone and we can take photos of videos underwater. it has a 4k camera and can dive 130 feet in the water and it can be linked to smartphones you can see what's underwater. >> was driving it? >> i think somebody is driving
8:29 pm
it for the first time. >> where is the controller. the controller -- has it. >> so what's the application of an underwater troll? >> there design for recreational use. we can use of her diving sessions and you can use it for fission and see the fish. and he can see the fish getting hooked. also you can attach it to the bottom of your boat. >> any industrial applications? may be inspections? >> yes it can be used for that. although it's design for recreational use as a clinical 130 feet. >> is us on the market? >> it's not. it's only our prototype. >> and worse your base?
8:30 pm
in hong kong. >> thank you for showing us the underwater drone. [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible]
8:31 pm
[inaudible] >> on location in las vegas for the consumer electronic show. contact to a company called suitable tech which produces a product and will work your vegas but we want to talk to dominic who was in colorado. >> harris nevada? >> it's very sunny today. >> this is our latest model. we have overly stay in the summer. the screen you're looking at is an integrated touchscreen. we have the ability to edit information safely and security.
8:32 pm
it can also increase and decrease -- say needed to communicate with a large group of people i needed to work at it conference table and i can add it collaborate in real time. i don't have to leave my home. >> was the technology to connect us right now? >> i have a few one is connected and as i move around the so painters are single then disconnect so there's never an interruption in service. i can also have 3d single anywhere on your cell phone. >> and the base of what you're in there, walk us through this robotics. >> this is not a robot. i have complete control. i'm using my laptop is super
8:33 pm
easy and you can download it from the app store. can hurry up and go to the text screen and it will follow that route. i'm gonna show my user-interface with you. this is what i'm looking at, one for camera and one lower directional camera. i can see the tip of your toes to the top of your head. so then i can will be responsive. >> switch back again and show what you're saying. >> this is my user interface. be slightly different for release in the summer. but it's very simple and intuitive. if i have a biomass in the lower quadrant you can see the blue lines and that if i click over
8:34 pm
here you see maybe i can make that a little bit tighter. >> it's very simple. >> was application of something like this? >> from telemedicine and education and factory oversight. any subject matter and place it where they needed the most. whether the ceo checking up overseas definitely face checking up on another relative in their home. >> so everyone at the ski conditions are. >> there we go. tell us about suitable tech? >> it's an amazing company. the roy moore of california were everything is designed about
8:35 pm
connecting people from all around the world in a brand-new way. my favorite application is the equalizer. it's really given people a lot of autonomy and independence. >> that's dominique in colorado. and this is the communicators in las vegas. >> thank you for your time. i hope you enjoyed.
8:36 pm
[inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible]
8:37 pm
>> if we think of this section some of the products and hope to be products on the market one of the left-handedness products is a kick starter. >> how does this work? >> creek starters a place to bring your creative project to lie. showcasing our partnership where we can bring together resources to help people manufacture the product. >> tell us about the relationship. >> for both experts and electronic manufacturing. what they do is provide resources to creators so they can plan and prepare for manufacturing in advance.
8:38 pm
>> heather they get connected? do you go to a website or app to find projects? >> the studio is our website. go to and we have laid out our resources and you can even apply for more hands-on program. >> what kind of reaction are you getting here? a lot of people coming by wanting money? >> it's very exciting. it's our first year having a presence. we love having creators come up and talk about the projects. >> you have some products on the shelf, anything to talk about that you have funded. >> i love to talk to. this is a kit put together for kids to learn how to code allowed the basics a coding. i'm and there's another unit back here where you can ballgames. disabled the game i read that
8:39 pm
chase by blue dots, just something simple and fun. another great project is a team out of mit, they came to kick starter and had a fantastic campaign. there were about his magnetic c can put it on the whiteboard and it will draw what you decide so you can code until it to try different shapes. i can also see what color the markers strong soffit hits a black line at one oh it's my time to turn around. it's a great way to engage kids encoding. >> so this guy offended be a quick try kick starter? >> absolutely. >> what's your background? >> i'm in the startup ecosystem. before i joined a my role here
8:40 pm
is outreach for the west coast for designer technology. >> thank you for time. [inaudible] [inaudible] >> what are you looking at? >> it's a tool that programming. so young students as young as ten -year-olds can do programming. using john as a medium. >> now the john is on the ground, but it you do? >> it flew out of the frame.
8:41 pm
>> you're controlling that with your hands? so when you move around with a camera you lose this and it goes in one direction. >> how far we can you get from the john? >> i think a pretty good range. we just have a small right now so we don't go crashing around. >> did you develop this? >> we had a team in san diego. >> near down here. >> yes it's in the market. we sell it on amazon in our website as well. it's in a few different countries right now. >> take us back to the computer
8:42 pm
and get it back up when the air force. >> it's a program to teach students how to program. right now started off and see. >> what was seen at the computer screen? >> i'm going to start flap in my hands you can see the black-and-white images showing new movement see a can get a pretty high up.
8:43 pm
>> couldn't recognize me is it just you? >> right now it's due anybody's just detecting movement. [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] >> were creating a contest of in this is our final level. >> did you work together on this product? >> yes we.
8:44 pm
>> what's your background? >> i learned it on my own and try to teach it if you like it empowers -- a lot of the content i have a tried educated to my students as well. >> all started off. start flap in your hands in front of it. stop moving. it's very simple. actually in the frame. >> is going through right now. let a crash.
8:45 pm
>> of its kid friendly in my classes i have like ten students line they get pretty excited. >> thank you very much. [inaudible] [inaudible]
8:46 pm
[inaudible] >> where the consumer electronic show. anything that you see today or any of the coverage you can watch at see spend, where history unfolds daily. in 1979, c-span was created as a public service by america's cable television companies. it's about two today by your cable or satellite provider. >> next homeland security secretary at the justice department summit on human trafficking. this is ten minutes.
