And while still a concept, the company was very bold to show a working prototype – meet Project PRECOG, a dual screen laptop imbued with AI features.

Or lay it flat on the ground and play games with a friend. Imagine the vast amount of content that can be created if the machine is that flexible.

When you remove them, the second screen can automatically turn itself into a touch pad and virtual keyboard. It may even work as a large sketchpad when you’re using creativity software.project precog

With Cortana enabled, you can also set meetings, reminders, and get updates in an instant, in a smarter way, without having to fiddle so much with an avalanche of settings.

project precogProject PRECOG is set to be powered by the Intel Movidius VPU or Vision Processing Unit, which provides features such as hardware-accelerated AI capabilities, real-time facial and object detection.
