We believe an intelligent future makes people’s lives better, and that starts with smart devices. Cloud enabled devices – such as PCs, tablets, smartphones, smart speakers, smart TV and AR/VR – bring you content, services and experiences in a new way. To do this, as a company and industry we have to get the ABCs – algorithm, big data, and computing power – of AI right. These factors together allow AI to make life better. Here’s an analogy; Algorithm is the engine of your car, big data is the steering wheel of the car and computing power drives the car forward.
From a business point of view, we’re investing heavily in this intelligent future. We’re investing in people so we have the right level of expertise across every aspect of our company. We’re investing in the right structures – in March, Lenovo Research officially launched its Artificial Intelligence Lab which includes more than 100 researchers across the globe. These researchers are looking at every element of what AI is today and what it will be in the future. And we’re investing in some of the most exciting burgeoning technologies and partnerships that will drive this intelligent future.
