Today at Computex 2018, Asus had revealed their line-up of new products which includes the ZenBook Pro 15 and ZenBook Pro 14 that has the revolutionary ScreenPad input device! Along with the triple-award-winning ZenBook S, a full lineup of VivoBook notebooks and the VivoWatch BP wearable blood-pressure monitor. However the highlight of the event was Project Precog, a brand new concept device which is also the world’s first convertible dual-screen notebook equipped with artificial intelligence features.
Other than the fact that it’s designed to be versatile and offers powerful productivity to users like AI Touch and AI Charging, Project Precog can still offer so much more.
“Over the last three decades, ASUS has focused on delivering meaningful innovations to market as well as refining every meticulous detail to perfect the computing experience,” said Mr. Shih. “We aspire to bring out the best in everyone by helping them unleash their creative power with beauty, performance, innovation and state-of-the-art technology including AI.”
The Artificial Intelligence (AI) that was integrated into the machine that can learn and change dependent on the user, fits the ever changing and vast amount of possibilities with technology. As Asus demonstrates what Project Precog can do, they have revealed their very first concept of the convertible, dual-screen notebook which is fully enhanced with the AI features.
What Project Precog can do is to expand and increase user’s productivity with the dual-screen. The PC can be used in four modes – Stand, Book, Tent and Flat which can be used dependent on the user to provide twice the screen space of traditional notebooks. This also means that we can see a future of notebooks that are rid off the traditional keyboards and touchpad setups, in replace with the flexibility of an extended screen AND customizable interactive interface.
It is able to predict and recognize the active input device and changes the virtual interface according to the user’s needs with the AI technology embedded in the notebook. For example, it can automatically adjust the keyboard location depending on where the user places their fingertips or automatically switch to a stylus mode when a stylus touches the lower screen.
Tough Project Precog is still in its prototype phase, we sure are excited of what the future tech would look like from Asus. From the AI’s ability to predict and adjust to our needs on the PC, to increasing our productivity with multitasking capabilities. We sure hope that Project Precog with integrated AI technology from Asus can be a full fledged PC soon.
