Lenovo Smart Assistant, Smart Storage Announced at CES 2017

Lenovo has introduced Lenovo Smart Assistant and Lenovo Smart Storage at CES 2017. Lenovo Smart Assistant is a new mainstream digital personal assistant with Amazon Alexa cloud-based voice services. Built in collaboration with Amazon, the elegantly designed Lenovo Smart Assistant recognizes users’ voice commands and uses Alexa to conduct web searches, play music, create lists, provide calendar updates and much more. And because Alexa’s brains are in the cloud, it means she’s always getting smarter.

Additionally, the device comes with the option of a special Harman Kardon edition for premium audio quality for music and home entertainment. The Lenovo Smart Assistant is also designed to run Lenovo smart home devices as well as scores of existing third-party products to expand consumers’ options.

“Our goal has never been to simply build smart home devices for the sake of advancing technology alone,” says Johnson Jia, Lenovo’s senior vice president, PC & Smart Device Business Group. “In the same way a person’s IQ is measured by applied knowledge, we believe products are ‘smart’ to the degree they’re actually understood and applied to daily life by their users.”

“We’re excited to work with an innovative company such as Lenovo to bring the Lenovo Smart Assistant with Alexa to customers this spring,” said Steve Rabuchin, vice president, Amazon Alexa. “At Amazon, we work hard to provide customers with as much choice as possible—and Lenovo’s new Smart Assistant speaker does just that through leveraging the power of Alexa Voice Services (AVS). We can’t wait for customers to try this out later this year.”

Designed for security and P2P (peer-to-peer) access to stored media like photos, music and documents, Lenovo Smart Storage offers users quick control of their data and files. Its integrated facial recognition software can organize your entire photo library based on faces with high accuracy.

The overall IoT market in 2020 is expected to reach a staggering $1.7 trillion, with much of that growth transitioning from the work place to the home.6 And by 2025, IoT may create up to $11.1 trillion per year in potential economic impact. 7
