Lenovo unveils smarter AI, solutions to drive AI further

Lenovo is making significant strides in democratizing access to Artificial Intelligence (AI) with its latest offerings.

Unveiling a suite of comprehensive enterprise AI solutions, Lenovo aims to empower companies of all sizes to develop and deploy AI effectively.

This expansion is driven by research commissioned by Lenovo, which reveals generative AI as the top tech investment priority for IT and business decision-makers globally. Backed by a US$1 billion investment over three years, Lenovo’s vision is to pave the way for “Smarter AI for All” through solutions that simplify adoption, accelerate outcomes, and maximize performance throughout the AI journey.

A commitment to responsible AI

Beyond technological innovation, Lenovo emphasizes responsible corporate citizenship. Their recently published 18th annual Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report outlines their proactive approach in governing accessible and inclusive AI.

This commitment ensures the responsible development and implementation of AI solutions.

Bridging the Gap Between Concept and Reality

Many organizations struggle to translate AI concepts into real-world applications. Lenovo tackles this challenge with its AI Services portfolio, aligned with the Gartner® Five Critical AI Adoption Phases.

The Lenovo AI Services Center of Excellence (AI COE) acts as a guide, helping customers find the right solutions to integrate AI into their operations quickly, cost-effectively, and at scale.

Lenovo AI Fast Start provides a range of services to help move AI from ideation to reality. This includes:
