The Wild Immersion and Lenovo Mirage™ Solo VR: Because the Earth is More than just a Statistic

Did you know that:
  • Earth’s population of wild animals declined 58 percent in 40 years, an average decline of 2 percent a year.1
  • Protected areas cover only 15 percent of the Earth’s land surface.2
  • The number one cause of the decline is habitat loss and degradation.1
 
Do you feel surprised? Concerned? Indifferent? Whatever the case, reading about a few statistics is worlds apart from actually witnessing the widespread loss and destruction of habitat first hand. But not all of us can go to the disappearing rainforests of the Amazon or the melting ice caps of the Antarctica to see this for ourselves. That’s why LenovoTM is collaborating with The Wild Immersion, supported by The Jane Goodall Institute, to make virtual reality (VR) a more immersive and memorable way to raise awareness about our environment.

7,000 Miles into the Melting Ice: Mission Arctic Expedition Reflections

Over the past six months, we’ve followed the Mission Arctic crew members as they sailed across the world, battling inclement weather and dangerous conditions in a race against time to complete an epic mission. The team sailed during the Arctic’s brief thawing period and used Lenovo Think-branded products to help guide the way through the treacherous glacial waters. We’re catching up with Nicolas Peissel for one last chat about the team’s adventure and what they’ll do with the research they gathered during three-and-a-half months at sea. The crew members will be on dry land until May, when they’ll depart on the Mission Arctic 2018 archaeological research adventure: “Searching for Bones.”

NC State University Helps Curb Climate Change’s Effect on Food and Water Supply with AI

Agriculture accounts for about 70 percent of the total global freshwater consumption, but fluctuations in temperature and rainfall around the world are exacerbating the potential for drought and floods around the world. Even the most minor of environmental changes can be felt across the food and agriculture supply chain.

North Carolina State University’s (NCSU) research program, in partnership with Lenovo, is actively invested in addressing the effects of climate change on the agricultural ecosystem.

Why is gender diversity the key to future-proofing our businesses?

Technology is creating opportunities for women that we previously could not have imagined; when I consider Fortune’s latest ‘Most Powerful Women in Business List’, in which 9 of the 50 women are in tech, I realize just how far we’ve come in that time.
