Lenovo™ Sees Intelligence Transforming Everything at MWC 2018, From Devices to Data Center

Jaa

Today, at MWC 2018, Lenovo reinforced its 2018 vision for technology innovations, moving its core strategy to Augmented Intelligence.

With its roots in the PC space, Lenovo has created one of the most complete collections of smart AI devices, giving it a unique advantage to provide the three key elements of Intelligence: Data, Computing Power and Algorithm.

Through new AR, VR and voice-activated technologies demonstrated at the show, Lenovo gives you powerful new ways to live, work and play. From intuitive new voice-enabled Yoga™ 2-in-1 laptops launched today, to transformative Moto Mods, to advanced data center solutions, Lenovo makes all the critical human connections to AI, from devices to data center.

A Different Smartphone Experience

At MWC, Motorola will be illustrating how it continues to challenge the industry with premium smartphone features at great value price points, and how innovation lives in our DNA with transformative Moto Mods that help you monitor your wellness, among other things. The Motorola Health Mod will be showcased, which allows you to easily measure five vital signs including accurate systolic and diastolic blood pressure, all via your moto z device.

Motorola will be sharing insights around its recently released global Phone-Life Balance Study which has been developed in partnership with Dr. Nancy Etcoff, renowned expert in Mind-Brain Behavior and the Science of Happiness at Harvard. The study identifies problematic behaviors that are impacting relationships with others and ourselves and shows how people are putting their phones before those they care about, with the most alarming findings tied to younger generations who have grown up in a digital world.

Motorola believes technology should enrich our lives, rather than distract from them and is offering intelligent solutions to help people manage their phone life balance. This includes a partnership with SPACE, an app that helps to make you more mindful of your phone usage, and Moto Experiences that support more intuitive mobile interactions.

A Different Approach to Voice

Lenovo’s PC and Smart Devices business is developing new products to transform commercial and consumer experiences through Augmented Intelligence.

At MWC, Lenovo will be introducing the new Yoga 730 (in 13-inch and 15-inch models) and the new 14-inch Yoga 530 – the latest additions to its 2-in-1 family designed for the mobile generation. The new Windows 10-based convertibles feature modern designs, powerful laptop performance and tablet portability that have made the Lenovo Yoga an iconic premium laptop brand since it first pioneered the convertible form factor. The new Yoga 730 harnesses the power of AI to give you intelligent assistance hands-free. With both Cortana and Alexa built-in, it offers more choice and recognizes voice commands from across the room.1

Lenovo’s new trio of ruggedized Lenovo 500e, 300e 2-in-1’s and 100e Chromebooks built for education are now available for consumers. Beyond the protective designs to guard against spills and drops the 300e Chromebook features Lenovo Enhanced Touch technology that allows the use of everyday objects to interact with the screen and the 500e Chromebook provides an EMR™ Pen with Google®’s innovative near lag-free algorithms for writing and sketching.

For smarter living, the new Lenovo Smart Display announced at CES 2018 makes using technology at home more convenient, intuitive and shared. It combines the voice capability of the Google Assistant™ with a vibrant, full HD touchscreen display.2 As the command hub for connected smart home devices, from lighting to heating and more, it can be controlled with just your voice or a quick glance at the display.

A Different Way to Experience Reality

Also launched at CES 2018, Lenovo will showcase how Augmented Intelligence continues to make its devices different and more immersive. The Lenovo Mirage™ Solo standalone VR headset and Lenovo Mirage Camera, a VR180 camera, lets you to create and consume your own VR content using Daydream™, Google’s mobile VR platform, while Star Wars™: Jedi Challenges with its Lenovo Mirage AR headset and Lightsaber controller breaks the boundaries of what’s possible by letting fans experience Jedi training in AR.

A Different Way to Improve the World

Lenovo’s Data Center Group continues to power the Intelligence Revolution by expanding into two new segments in Telecommunications and IoT.

As innovations in mobile and smart devices rapidly grow, the telecom industry is undergoing massive changes with 5G networks. Lenovo is uniquely positioned to disrupt the traditional telecom installed base and provide a seamless transition for communication service providers to the software defined world.

Lenovo is launching a performance optimized offering based on Lenovo ThinkSystem SR650/SR630 servers and switches, Red Hat OpenStack Platform, and Mellanox ConnectX-4 NICs for accelerated packet processing. In addition, Lenovo is joining the ‘Intel Select Solution for NFV’ program and offering a solution specially optimized for encryption and compression based NFV workloads. The solution is comprised of Intel QuickAssist Technology (QAT) and Intel XXV710 NIC enabled on Lenovo SR650/SR630 servers.

Leveraging its #1 position in x86 server reliability3, Lenovo will also demo the industry's first 5G-ready base station with software and virtualized implementation of the centralized and distributed units (CU/DU) – made possible through customer-led, joint collaboration with China Mobile.

Demonstrations of Lenovo’s ‘device to datacenter’ solutions can be seen at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 26 – March 1 at the Lenovo Showcase in Hall 3, Space 3N30. In the Intel booth, Lenovo will showcase a ‘self-optimizing 5G network’ solution based on Lenovo ThinkSystem SR650 servers.

ResMed Studies Show Remote Monitoring and Automated Resupply Improve Adherence to PAP Therapy22.5.2018 15:55Tiedote

Remote patient monitoring and resupply programs have been shown to improve patient adherence to positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy, according to two separate studies presented by ResMed (NYSE: RMD, ASX: RMD) this week at the ATS 2018 International Conference. Remote monitoring boosts compliance In the first study, medXcloud, a ResMed-assembled group of healthcare key opinion leaders, examined de-identified data of more than 2.6 million U.S. PAP users from ResMed’s world-leading remote monitoring network, AirView. Using this big data approach, researchers observed excellent adherence among patients initiating PAP therapy: 75 percent achieved the CMS compliance threshold.* This rate compares very favorably with that of non-cloud-connected PAP therapy and other chronic medical therapies – both around 50 percent. Plus, the large sample suggests that the findings are generalizable and likely to reflect real-world clinical care. Resupply program boosts long-term compliance In a separate

Asuragen to Launch the AmplideX® PCR/CE DMPK Kit and Present Growing Genetic Testing Portfolio at 2018 European Society of Human Genetics (ESHG) Conference22.5.2018 15:00Tiedote

Asuragen, Inc., a molecular diagnostics company delivering high-quality, easy to use products for complex testing in genetics and oncology, today announced the launch of the AmplideX® PCR/CE DMPK Kit* to simplify analysis of repeat expansions within the DMPK gene, which is implicated in myotonic dystrophy type I (DM1), also known as Steinert’s disease. DM1 is an inherited form of muscular dystrophy that affects the muscles as well as multiple other organ systems, and its severity is largely determined by the size of the CTG trinucleotide repeat expansion within the DMPK gene. These expansions commonly extend beyond a thousand CTG repeats and therefore have required the use of cumbersome Southern blot technology to estimate their size. “The AmplideX DMPK Kit represented a significant improvement over our existing process for analyzing large DMPK expansions,” said Doctor Sophie Rondeau, PharmD, PhD, and Professor Jean-Paul Bonnefont, MD, PhD, of the Necker-Enfants Malades Hospital in Par
