IFA Berlin – Of Course It Needs A.I.

Retail has faced unprecedented challenges this past year (and counting).

The 2019 edition of IFA Berlin is wrapping up, after showcasing the newest consumer electronics with a focus on artificial intelligence.

(Trade) Show Me What You Got!

Although co-innovation carries forward as a given theme from last year, one of the main topics at this year’s IFA Berlin is artificial intelligence. The trade show brings together a who’s who of consumer electronics, as well as new players in the industry, all there to show off what they’ve been working on.Artificial intelligence is now a major part of our digital world, whether we like it or not. At Testbirds, we welcome our new robot overlords. In fact, we want to help them get better so they can help us in our daily lives, which in turn should lead to fantastic new creations.

Easy Living, Easy Shopping

Who knows what we might accomplish when we don’t have to choose our own washing machine program, our fridges warn us if our beer is freezing, and our stoves yell at us for leaving the burner on.Optimally, we’ll make good use of our extra time and resources but then again, we might just spend more time shopping online. And the places we shop won’t only be the ones that have the products we want, they’ll be the ones that give us the best user experience with the least amount of annoyance and errors. They’ll be the ones who decided to start testing early in development, who continuously test their webshops after launch and make use of the results for further improvement.When our favourite webshops inevitably become the favourite of others as well, they’ll be the ones who make sure they can handle the increased amount of traffic. Then, we can finally enjoy all the new gadgets presented at IFA Berlin in time for the upcoming shopping season.

Something Fold, Something New, Something Walkman, Something Hue

Many new products were presented at IFA Berlin. Among them, we find an updated version of the Samsung Galaxy Fold and its counterpart the Huawei Mate X, Bluetooth capabilities added to Philips Hue lightbulbs, and a portable speaker from Sonos (by the way, if you’re at DMEXCO you can win a Sonos One at our booth so come say hi).Some of the more obscure products included a built-in clothes steamer for your closet, a Sony Walkman that doesn’t play cassettes, and a pillow with a wagging tail called Qoobo that reduces stress when you pet it.Qoobo

Less Stress Through More Tests

So, if you’re stressing about the quality of your chatbot, or any other type of digital product, you could get a Qoobo to reduce your stress levels a bit. Or you could just get in touch with Testbirds and we’ll make sure you don’t have anything to be stressed about in the first place.This week we're at DMEXCO in Cologne at Booth No. E-052a, Hall 07.1. Come meet us for a chat and a chance to win a Sonos One!
