However the human child doesn’t study to acknowledge a cat this manner. The infants, they exit, see a cat or two, after which they know what a cat appears to be like like. They do not want 1,000,000 coaching samples, they solely want one or two. In order that’s very completely different. So they do not want large knowledge to study. As an alternative, small knowledge is ample. So this is among the large challenges that must be addressed for AI to achieve the subsequent degree. So one attainable route is to maneuver from in the present day’s data-driven AI to future hybrid AI the place it integrates each the data-driven and knowledge-driven collectively. In order that’s my ideas about AI’s future.
Laurel: No, that is superb. It is also actually attention-grabbing to listen to about AI in manufacturing in manufacturing after which this concept of studying AI, and such as you mentioned, a child does not study what a cat is. And there is clearly a lot in between every of these concepts. I believe significantly this idea is so advanced and after we take into consideration how AI is now altering and form of evolving into this factor, we’re now calling the commercial metaverse, proper? Which is a mix of these digital and real-world capabilities. This is not science fiction anymore, that is truly taking place. So what are a few of these examples of prolonged actuality or XR that we’d see in these subsequent few years?
Yong: That is appropriate, Laurel. Truly, I believe the truth is right here, and with that mentioned, the metaverse itself remains to be in its early stage of improvement. And completely different folks have completely different definitions of what the metaverse is. From Lenovo’s perspective, the metaverse is a hybrid of bodily and digital worlds the place folks and objects join and work together with one another. And the XR gadgets, together with AR, VR, MR are the important thing human machine interface of and the portal to, the metaverse, with the mixed and strengthened info from each phrases, the bodily and the digital. Within the metaverse, we will present customers with extra immersive and interactive experiences and clear up trade challenges with increased effectivity and decrease value. So let me present you an instance. So let’s take the electrical energy trade, for instance. Traditionally, the inspection of energy station gear has been time-consuming and typically, as you’ll be able to think about, harmful. Apart from, human employees could make errors inflicting energy outages and different accidents.
As such, these duties can incur excessive value for energy corporations. However now with the brand new metaverse applied sciences, we’ve got the likelihood to rework this trade right into a safer and extra environment friendly trade. The bottom line is to construct a metaverse that connects the digital and the bodily. And we truly considered this loads, and we concluded there are 3 ways to attain this. The 3 ways are bodily digital mapping, bodily digital superimposition, and bodily digital interactivity. Once more, let me use the electrical energy trade instance for example this. First, the bodily digital mapping signifies that we have to construct a digital model of the bodily energy station, which we check with because the “meta-space.” Truly, two months in the past we simply completed our Tech World [conference]. I’ve a fairly detailed description about this meta-space. I in all probability will not have time to go over that in the present day with you, however for these within the viewers who’ve curiosity, I might refer them to the Lenovo Tech World 2022 that occurred in October.
They will have a extra detailed state of affairs there. After which after this bodily digital mapping then comes the bodily digital superimposition, which suggests we overlay the digital info onto actual objects by way of, as an illustration, AR glasses. This truly will considerably increase the capabilities of human employees, permitting them to examine the standing and determine extra capabilities sooner and carry out upkeep duties extra effectively. And thirdly, the human employees should not in a position to cowl each nook of the facility station, particularly these hazardous areas that poses dangers to well being and life.
In that case, human employees can ship a bodily robotic to do the job of their place, they’ll plan a path for the robotic within the digital energy station. Then the robotic can transfer within the bodily energy station and carry out the inspection activity, together with recognizing gear readings, detecting irregular warmth and monitoring gear standing within the energy station. And the third approach, once more, we name it the bodily digital interactivity. So these are the 3 ways we expect that we join the digital and bodily world. And naturally, above, I used the facility station inspection for instance for example the metaverse, however these applied sciences actually can create large alternatives throughout many different industries.
Laurel: You’ll be able to actually think about that instance in healthcare simply being completely trade altering, when you have been in a position to. Yeah, that is actually fairly astounding. And I believe it is a good distinction to essentially outline for folk what the commercial metaverse might deliver us with this capacity, with the XR applied sciences, to do issues that have not been completed earlier than with that good mix between what’s digital after which that bodily world. So talking of that bodily world, how will adoption of applied sciences like these that we have been speaking about in the present day assist sustainability and enterprise social and governance or ESG targets? And what are Lenovo’s personal sustainability targets? As a result of as you talked about, these huge factories creating various laptops, one out of each eight on the planet, that is fairly a problem for Lenovo as effectively.
Yong: Laurel, thanks for asking this query. I believe for any know-how innovation, we must be accountable too. And also you simply talked about the massive manufacturing facility LCFC, proper? Think about if we will save 5% of electrical energy energy, that is going to save lots of plenty of carbon emission. That may cut back plenty of carbon emission. That is undoubtedly one thing we’re very dedicated to and we’re very significantly engaged on. So total, Lenovo is dedicated to attain a sustainable progress by serving to decarbonize the worldwide financial system.
