Samsung introduced new televisions, home appliances, laptops and vehicle technology, and announced all its consumer products will be AI-enabled by 2020 - and said its Galaxy S9 smartphone will be introduced in February.

The CES is a sprawling and overwhelming blur of booths, press events, demos and gadgets.

"A preliminary assessment indicates that condensation from heavy rainfall caused a flashover on one of the facility's transformers", the CTA, Las Vegas Visitor and Convention Authority and NV Energy - which provides electricity to the Las Vegas Convention Center - said in a joint statement. "We will continue to restrict access until full power has been restored". The hashtag #CESBlackout was born.

Thanks to Alexa's unparalleled triumph as the go-to user-friendly AI for third parties, featuring in everything from cars, fridges, smartphones and smart TVs to washing machines speakers from other companies, other companies aren't as interested in creating rival AIs as they are developing products to take advantage of the existing ones.

Most of its display was lit as hundreds of attendees passed by in the dark on their way to a brightly lit giant screen TV over the convention center's fully functioning South Hall.

An hour or more later the power is still out, and security have been forced to shut the doors of the show preventing people accessing the LVCC and for those inside the show already they are blocking access to the Central Hall.

Staff were told to close all entrances to the event, according to show management. Folks still leaving Central Hall and not let in.
