Lenovo releases six AI PCs. How come computers equipped with intelligent agents become a “new AI species”?

What are the differences between AI PCs and traditional computers?

Not only PC terminals, but also common questions that consumers have when facing devices marked with AI functions.

This morning, Lenovo held the 10th Lenovo Innovation and Technology Conference in Shanghai with the theme of "AI for All, filling the world with AI". It answered this question with a brand-new idea.

The conference showcased Lenovo’s various achievements in the field of AI:

  • Based on "the core proposition, strategic picture and latest technological achievements of hybrid artificial intelligence judgment;
  • Released a series of AI PC products with built-in personal intelligence "Lenovo Xiaotian";
  • Release innovative applications and solutions such as enterprise intelligence and Lenovo’s Wanquan heterogeneous intelligent computing platform.

Through the implementation of these new technologies and new products, Lenovo also elaborated on the future picture of the technical architecture, ecological cooperation and industrial construction that can enable AI to be implemented and inclusive, and also explained what they believe to be the necessary characteristics of AI PCs.

The implementation of AI requires hybrid artificial intelligence

Yang Yuanqing, chairman and CEO of Lenovo Group, said at the technology conference:

The second half of artificial intelligence must be the stage from technological breakthroughs to practical applications. The key word at this moment, I think, is "landing".

At present, the impact and transformation of AI on all walks of life are quietly underway. Yang Yuanqing believes that AI is essentially a technical means. With its assistance, human imagination will be more easily transformed into reality.

From Lenovo's perspective, hybrid AI is the inevitable path for AI to reach and empower more industries.

In real personal life scenarios and organizational operation scenarios, relying solely on public large models is not enough. The current mainstream large language models are mainly public large models running on public clouds.

However, Lenovo believes that in actual use, the further popularization and application of public large models is limited by network speed, cloud efficiency and cost considerations.

Therefore, Lenovo proposed a hybrid AI of "personal large model + enterprise large model".

In the hybrid AI framework, personal large models and enterprise large models, as well as personal agents and enterprise agents developed on their basis, will coexist and complement the public large models to provide more personalized services and meet privacy protection needs. .

Personal intelligence refers to running on personal smart terminals or edge devices through large model compression technology, receiving instructions in a natural interactive way, and performing better tasks through personal travel records, shopping preferences and other information stored on the device. Reason and take action.

It can even predict the next task based on your thinking patterns and behavior frequency, proactively make suggestions, and find solutions independently.

Enterprise intelligence can learn and reason on a large amount of enterprise data. While ensuring information security, it can support enterprise operation decisions, improve management efficiency, and increase productivity.

For example, if a typhoon is coming, of course, the company can first obtain the accurate location and wind forecast of the typhoon through the public large model, but when it comes to specific customers whose order delivery may be affected, it is time for the enterprise intelligence to show its talents.

It can further provide suggestions for optimizing transportation methods and adjusting order sequencing to ensure priority shipment and delivery. This greatly improves the decision-making speed of enterprises in response to crises while ensuring the security of customer information.

New species of AI, catalyst for the implementation of hybrid AI

The implementation of AI cannot be separated from the coverage of smart devices, smart infrastructure, smart solutions and services. Therefore, Lenovo has proposed these three pillars to promote the inclusiveness of AI.

For individual users, the most convenient way to obtain the experience of personal intelligence is through personal computing devices such as computers and mobile phones with built-in personal intelligence.

At the conference, Lenovo launched a series of AI PC products. Interestingly, the new equipment was handed over to Yang Yuanqing from the Lenovo Morning Star Footed Robot.

According to Yang Yuanqing, this AI PC, called a new species of AI, has five major characteristics.

  • Equipped with a personalized AI Agent – Lenovo Xiaotian
  • Possess powerful local heterogeneous computing power combined with CPU, GPU, and NPU
  • Create a personal knowledge base for each owner
  • Connect the open artificial intelligence application ecosystem
  • Protect personal data and privacy

Yang Yuanqing said that with these five features, PC will no longer be a Personal Computer, but an artificial intelligence personalized computer.

At the press conference, Lenovo officially announced the Yoga Book AI Yuanqi Edition, Yoga Pro 16s AI Yuanqi Edition, ThinkPad T14p AI Yuanqi Edition, ThinkBook 16p AI Yuanqi Edition, Yoga Air 14 AI Yuanqi Edition, Xiaoxin Pro 16 AI Yuanqi Edition has six new AI PC products, and officially launched the "Pioneer Experiencer" program to recruit Lenovo AI PC Pioneer Experience Officers.

Among them, Lenovo Xiaotian is a highlight among AI PCs and is also the easiest to be perceived by users.

It has built-in personal large models that can interact naturally with users. It can truly understand your natural language and intentions, is good at learning and reflection, has superhuman memory, knows its own responsibilities and boundaries, can form a logical and rigorous chain of reasoning, decompose complex tasks, and make plans.

Therefore, enterprises need servers, networks and storage devices to keep the massive data in its proper place and make the best use of it, and then use artificial intelligence models and algorithms to realize enterprise data intelligence.

Therefore, the implementation of enterprise intelligence requires hybrid infrastructure, and every link of "device-edge-cloud-network-intelligence" is indispensable.

The last and most complex pillar: the design, deployment, management and maintenance of hybrid smart infrastructure.

For the complicated data of different industries and different types of enterprises, how to clean and organize it, and then use appropriate algorithm models to learn and reason about it, so as to generate intelligence in all aspects of enterprise operations. Such intelligent solutions will become Hot new IT applications in various industries.

For this purpose, Lenovo has established an artificial intelligence professional service team to help enterprises plan and build intelligent agents, and provide support for corporate decision-making, allowing corporate customers to improve the efficiency of operations and decision-making while ensuring data security.

In Lenovo's vision, through the three pillars of equipment, infrastructure, and solutions and services, AI can truly be implemented and come to us.

In addition, AMD Chairman and CEO Su Zifeng also attended this technology conference and said that in the next ten years, AI will significantly change our daily lives, accelerate scientific breakthroughs, improve medical diagnosis, and provide products that can enhance productivity. Personalized digital assistants, new tools for content creators, and more.

While the focus of AI to date has been primarily on data centers, AI PCs will be the terminals through which many users interact with AI in their daily lives. The combination of powerful new AI computing hardware and innovative new software will transform the PC into a truly intelligent and personalized device.

AMD will also continue to iterate new products based on its existing hardware computing power. Later this year, it will launch the next generation "Strix Point" Ryzen processor, whose AI performance will be more than three times that of the Ryzen 7040 series.

The so-called Artificial Intelligence may be more appropriately called Augmented Intelligence.

Yang Yuanqing said at the conference that AI is essentially a technical means. With its assistance, human imagination will be more easily transformed into reality. Therefore, AI actually enhances, rather than replaces, human intelligence.

Therefore, before worrying about whether AI will replace our jobs or even our status, all enterprises and users need to face two questions first:

  • How can AI benefit people’s lives?
  • When AI comes to us on a large scale, how can we make better use of it and coexist with it?
