Lenovodemonstrated its artificial intelligence capabilities and shared its ‘AI for All’ vision at its annual flagship event last week.The $62-billion tech giant’s hybrid approach revolves around coexistence of public, private, and personalfoundation models. Foundation models refer to processes where AI ‘learns’ from raw data and adapts it to accomplish various tasks.
“Together, we are unleashing the power of AI to help build a smarter, more inclusive, and more sustainable world,” Lenovo chairman & CEO Yuanqing Yang said. Lenovo, the world’s leading personal computer maker, is also bringing back ‘personal’ in PCs with a feature called AI NOW – an AI assistant solution.
AI uses personalised and private inferencing models based on a user’s own on-device knowledge base and fine-tuned models, and protects the end user with data security and privacy protection. To keep data secure and protect the privacy of users, the company says Lenovo AI can operate exclusively within a device or securely with on-premises servers. In both instances, Lenovo AI learns from data provided by an individual user or through the proprietary data of an enterprise but ensures no information is shared publicly or enters open training data sets.
Lenovo also unveiled Motorola’s conceptual bendable phone that can be worn on the wrist like a bracelet. The smartphone uses an FHD+ POLED display that can be bent and shaped into different forms.
