Good evening everyone, and Happy New Year. And on behalf of the Consumer Electronics Association, I’d like to welcome you to the preshow keynote for the 2014 International CES. Tomorrow, when the show floor opens, you’ll see groundbreaking products and services from more than 3,200 technology companies. You’ll hear keynotes from top industry leaders, and you’ll choose from nearly 300 conference sessions to learn about new technologies and business models. You’ll also network with colleagues, and you’ll make new contacts.
You know, with some estimated 20,000 new products being introduced in 15 different categories, CES is the world’s premier innovation event. We have an incredible lineup of top executives giving CES keynotes, including Audi’s Rupert Stadler tonight at 8:30 at the Cosmopolitan Chelsea Theater. And by the way, if you’re interested in that, buses will depart from level one below right immediately following this keynote.
Other keynotes include Sony’s Kaz Hirai, Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer, Cisco’s John Chambers and other top executives from Qualcomm, AT&T and many more on keynote panels.
Also, new FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler and Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker will also be here on Wednesday to share their views on technology issues. And now, this is what you’re waiting for. I would like to introduce to you our preshow keynote for the 2014 International CES.
More than four decades ago, two brilliant engineers started a company that would literally change the world. Those engineers, Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore, believed that integrated electronics could totally change modern life. They called their company Intel. When they founded the company, the personal computer hadn’t even been invented yet. The handheld calculator was a brand-new innovation, and it cost more than $500. But the work of Intel changed all of that.
So much of the consumer electronics revolution that we have witnessed the last two decades is due in large measure to the advances pioneered by Intel. Today, Intel’s technology continues to drive the world of computing, data centers and personal technology. Intel is not only a world-class innovator. It continues to set the highest standard in global technology manufacturing.
