Tokyo, Japan. – January 31, 2019 – Wacom Co., Ltd. announced that iFLYTEK, the AI and speech/language technology leader based in China, has adopted Wacom’s EMR™ (Electro-Magnetic Resonance) digital pen technology for its first intelligent tablet device, featuring handwriting input, speech recording, speech to text conversion and other functions.
“AI Note” by iFLYTEK
iFLYTEK is leading the way in spreading the use of AI for various devices and applications, and recently won this year’s CES Innovation Award for its iFLYTEK Translator 2.0.
The newly launched AI Note handles multiple office functions and allows users to input information with handwriting, as well as speech recognition depending on situations and content that can be converted into text, instantly harnessing the power of AI by iFLYTEK. Using the digital pen, the converted text can be further modified to raise the level of perfection.
Featuring a 10.3 inch E Ink Carta flexible screen and Wacom’s EMR technology, the AI Note’s writing experience is not only accurate, natural and fast, it is also easy on the user’s eyes – a very important factor for extended use.
“The AI Note is the achievement of the collaboration of three leading companies passionate about digital pen and ink: iFLYTEK, Wacom and E Ink. Combining the power of AI and handwriting on digital paper, we will deliver greater functionality far above and beyond what is possible with analog pen and paper,” said Sayatake Komine, SVP in charge of Wacom’s Technology Solution Business Unit.
