Lenovo’s net income attributable to shareholders fell 23% to US$337 million, which was below analysts’ average estimate of US$309 million.

The company attributed its revenue growth to its strong performance in its core PC and smart device business, as well as its emerging businesses in smart infrastructure, smart solutions, and smart services. Lenovo also said it invested US$1 billion in AI innovation as part of its commitment to unleashing the power of AI for intelligent transformation in every aspect of our lives and every industry.

Lenovo’s AI Vision

Lenovo’s chairman and CEO, Yang Yuanqing, shared the company’s vision of ‘AI for All’ at Tech World and explained how Lenovo is taking a dynamic approach to hybrid AI, where public, private, and personal foundation models will co-exist to enable AI for All.

“Looking ahead, our commitment to AI innovation, our pocket-to-cloud computing capabilities, and our full-stack portfolio of smart devices, smart infrastructure, smart solutions, and smart services, combined with our partnerships with other key leaders in AI, will ensure that we are well-positioned to capture the tremendous opportunities in AI,” Yang said.

Yang also emphasized that Lenovo’s AI solutions are designed to be secure and privacy-preserving and that Lenovo AI can operate exclusively within a device or securely with on-premises servers without sharing any information publicly or entering open training data sets.
