IBM chairman, president and CEO, Ginni Rometty, will headline the CES 2019 keynote stage, kicking off the annual gathering of the world’s foremost consumer technology leaders. Rometty will speak at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019 at the Venetian’s Palazzo Ballroom in Las Vegas. Rometty will open CES by sharing a unique outlook for how technology – built on a foundation of responsibility and trust – will significantly improve how businesses operate and people work and live.
Specifically, Rometty will discuss how technologies like artificial intelligence, blockchain and cloud are reshaping the world of business, and, in turn, our daily lives. She also will talk about what’s coming next in these pioneering technologies – and how new data will revolutionize how we live, work and play.
