Lenovo started another edition of Tech World, an event where technology presents its main innovations, your view of the industry, presenting conferences focused on different areas of your business, equipment, computers and IT solutions available in different areas. Climate change and sustainability were themes that the company has as background and how smart technology can help change the world.
Lenovo CEO Yuanqing Yang opened the event to highlight how technology can make the world a better place, offering predictability, unleashing the imagination and the possibilities of using digitization and intelligence to transform the planet. And make people’s lives better and more sustainable through cloud solutions and artificial intelligence, working together.
Technology has brought together a number of trends that are shaping the way people work and live together, forcing companies and employees to adapt to new professional realities.
THE The first trend is the combination of the physical and virtual world as the future of the workspace. Co-workers become real or virtual, through artificial intelligence the metaverse can make spaces equally virtual. But all this to emphasize that collaboration can now take place anywhere, meet with colleagues in personalized virtual rooms, hold online meetings and thereby disappear the boundaries of physical spaces. He says that future work is more comprehensive and collaborative.
The company is working on hologram productivity solutions in cyberspace. People, data and space are mixed to make face-to-face conversations closer, albeit virtual. It is the company’s entry into the metaverse, through impressive sound and image, building virtual meeting rooms. The company intends to break down the boundaries between physical and virtual.
Lenovo and Qualcomm have teamed up to unlock the potential of the metaverse. Lenovo virtual reality headset provides meetings in cyberspace, through avatars, either at trainings for learning new functions, finding colleagues to work with or socializing, in, as he says, breaking through barriers.
Another trend is the transition from computer to computer. Have faster computers, faster data transfer, with more security. And of course, the form factors of new products. Computing can be done anywhere, through Edge. It compares the provision of computing like electricity and water, through a service model provided by the cloud.
The Edge computer enables, through an online connection, the offering of services. Lenovo revealed news about ThinkEdge servers and the XClarity service for unifying all equipment and applications. Its hybrid cloud solutions aim to be more flexible, with subscription models for its customers.
THE The third trend highlighted by the head of the company relates to ICT companies that enable the digitization of organizations. There are new IT solutions based on the cloud and other horizontal solutions, not only based on equipment, but also on smart spaces, metaverse, cloud and artificial intelligence. Factories are struggling with a lack of materials to produce products.
Lenovo says it has a new predictive and decision-making engine to mitigate supply chain risk. Optimization is also done by smart services. He gives an example of the industrial metaverse, such as virtual classrooms to help students learn or remote video collaboration for professionals to be virtually present where they are needed.
Innovation drives productivity, says the head of Lenovo. In addition, the fourth trend is to make the planet more sustainable, and technology plays a role in this, he points out. Supercomputing can be used to reduce your carbon footprint, like your Neptune supercomputer.
When it comes to sustainability, new materials such as vegan leather and recycled aluminum are ways to reduce the planet’s carbon footprint. These materials are used in their products, such as the Yoga Slim i9, which is considered the first carbon-free computer on the market. Low-temperature welds, boxes with biological materials, are small changes in construction aimed at reducing the carbon footprint. By switching to low-temperature soldering alone, the company claims to have reduced 10 billion cubic meters of carbon emissions. He believes that small changes like this have a big impact on the environment.
On this way, Lenovo aims to be “net-zero” by 2050. And for that, he counts on all his partners and customers around the world, who challenge the company to be better, emphasizes the technology leader. And with that, he intends to build a smarter future.
