Tech startups from the University of Southampton will unveil revolutionary AI and quantum technology products at CES 2021 – as the UK’s only university representative.
Innovative technology developed at the University of Southampton is being launched on the world stage from 11th-14th January at CES 2021, as the world’s largest and most influential technology exhibition goes virtual.
Tech entrepreneurs leading eight startups will exhibit at the all-digital expo, showcasing pioneering advances from a range of sectors including Artificial Intelligence, Fitness and Wearables, Quantum Computing, Sports Technology, and Sustainability.
