Killexams : Why Kickstarter and TEDx are the Future of Business
 Until recently, if you wanted to make an impact, the only option was to sign on with an organization. It simply wasn’t possible to raise capital, manufacture a product, or organize a mass action without institutional backing. But in the last half-decade, all that’s changed, says Nilofer Merchant, author of 11 Rules for Creating Value in the Social Era, which was just named one of the Best Business Books of 2012 by Fast Company. “Today, individuals can create value and we have the platforms that allow that to happen,” she says.

Whether it’s Kickstarter and its crowdfunding model or the “independently organized and curated” events of TEDx, Merchant believes a new ethos is reshaping business. The old bromides – “the 800 lb. gorilla way, that size matters, you rule over others, and people are subservient to organizations” – no longer work. Instead, she says, “I think the 21st century is about working with others. There’s a notion that individuals can come together and create value, create scale. Each of us as an individual recognizes the value we bring: I’m not a cog in a machine; I bring creativity and vision. It’s a different way of thinking about ‘what is thriving?’ or ‘what is value’?”

The decline of large, bureaucratic organizations (and the rise of better options) means that inventors don’t have to work for 3M or IBM; they can create their own product via Quirky. Same goes for crafters, who can reach millions on Etsy, or filmmakers, who can bypass the studios in favor of Kickstarter, retaining creative control in the process. But whether or not you’re a creative professional, says Merchant, the same dynamics are beginning to penetrate the entire workforce. “Close to 50% of the U.S. workforce isn’t working at a traditional job. They’re figuring out how to have a ‘portfolio life,’ with more flexibility to be with their family and do the work they want to do.”

“At an individual level, it’s an exciting time to be alive,” she says. “If you and I no longer need to work for an organization in order to create value, we can look within ourselves and say, ‘what can I contribute?’” Suddenly we get a chance to look at our own calling without seeking permission from someone else. I think human beings have an amazing wealth of creativity within us, but we largely haven’t given ourselves permission because the economics didn’t work. For individuals, that creates boundless opportunity.”

Some innovative new organizations (including those mentioned above) have sprung up to harness this opportunity. Merchant also cites Singularity University, which eschews the traditional higher ed trappings (including tenured faculty) and instead leverages a small staff to create an entire curriculum using “curators” and outside instructors, allowing for maximum flexibility. Says Merchant, “At the end of every semester, they aren’t committed to using those professors. They ask, ‘what do we need now?’ And they find the next group of curators. It’s acting more like an organism might, where change is built into the system.” This evolution, she says, only makes sense. In the past, “once you had a sustainable advantage, the goal was to protect it and you’d hold it for 30 years. But today, that arc is more like five years, so you have to build change into your organizational construct.”

The challenge is different for established players, who now have to ask, “How do you take advantage of all this creativity and talent? How do you start to create value with those people, rather than the way we’ve traditionally thought about it?” She praises IBM as “a behemoth that’s adapting” to the social era, launching creative new initiatives such as the Smarter Planet project. “It’s basically them asking a series of questions: who’d like to come co-create with us? Instead of assuming you have to know everything before you go into a situation, which is a very 20th century architecture, it’s about being curious.”

Some have raised questions about monetization in the Social Era. Sure, someone might self-publish the next 50 Shades of Grey. But what about the widespread economic displacement that comes with such a tremendous shift in how we do business? Merchant remains bullish, but says it will take creativity (indeed, she herself spends significant time writing, but earns most of her money through a separate channel, public speaking). “There might be re-leveling and displacement,” she says, “but there are also new models being created. Kickstarter has allowed people to get financing; Quirky is allowing inventors to make money at a much better scale than in the past. It’ll take more time to become clear, because we’re in the very early innings of a big game.”

How is your business adapting to – and capitalizing on – the rise of the Social Era?

Killexams : Wells Fargo prepares to take a quantum leap

Wells Fargo was introduced to quantum computing’s potential in 2019. At that time, the financial services company was exploring post-quantum cryptography and already had research relationships with academic institutions working on AI research.  When IBM started work on its quantum computing research network, Wells Fargo decided to explore the possibilities.

“As we started unpacking approaches to post-quantum cryptography and what quantum generally has to offer, it became obvious that there are potential use cases where you could apply quantum to do certain transactions in an exponentially more efficient way,” says Chintan Mehta, CIO for digital technology and innovation at Wells Fargo. The team also found problems in computer science that classical computers cannot solve in a reasonable amount of time that could potentially be solved using quantum techniques. “We saw a line of sight for solving mathematical problems which would be a big amplification of productivity,” Mehta recalls.

Today, Wells Fargo is working with the MIT–IBM research group to explore and test-drive mathematical computations using quantum. Among the experiments are new approaches to vector mathematics and generalized linear algebra. One example use case: Rapid re-calculation pricing for a large book of trades done in parallel and more efficiently using the quantum computing ecosystem.  Other use cases in the financial industry include leaning on quantum’s data modeling capabilities to handle the complex data structures on which fraud detection systems are built. Creaky fraud detection mechanisms partly contribute to weeks-long waiting periods for customers to be onboarded. Quantum is expected to shorten processing times dramatically.

Mehta emphasizes that Wells Fargo is focusing on the utilitarian aspects of quantum computing. “We are participating in quantum research to help validate use cases in the financial services industry that will benefit from quantum computing; we are not doing pure fundamental research, like how to build a physical quantum infrastructure for example,” he explains.

Quantum’s promise

Traditional computing is based on binary arithmetic, which transistors can easily handle. Conventional computers have made strides by cramming more transistors into ever-smaller integrated circuits.

Quantum computing upends the rules of the game by flexing something called a qubit (the quantum equivalent of a bit) which can adopt multiple states, not just the binary 0 or 1. The power of quantum systems grows exponentially, meaning that a theoretical 200-qubit system would be 2200 times as powerful as one with 100 qubits.

Quantum computers are thus able to take on problems that traditional computers simply don’t have the power to solve, such as those with complex multivariates based on probability and the modeling of what-if scenarios. This can help avoid problems like those created when driver-assistance apps suggest alternates to congested routes that then become the source of new traffic jams. Quantum-enabled traffic optimization avoids that problem by calculating all possibilities at once.

A large neural network, which is under the hood for many advanced computations across industries, depends on linear algebra calculations for training billions of nodes. “Quantum exponentially accelerates that,” Mehta says, “overall network build times go from days to minutes.”

Known unknowns

Despite quantum technology’s promise, one of the challenges of working with the technology is the many unknowns, Mehta says. “There’s still a huge gap between what we think quantum can do and what quantum can do today, especially when it comes to higher-order mathematical operations,” he says, “the stability of those operations, the expectation that humankind has around the repeatability of a computational construct is fundamentally missing from quantum today. You can run a computation multiple times and potentially get different answers each time.” That’s a source of some worry. “We’re in that space where the simulation has gone much further ahead than the actual physical quantum computer,” Mehta says.

The other unknown is whether the technology will pan out as predicted. Mehta contrasts quantum and artificial intelligence: “With AI we knew the technology works; the unknown was whether a user could be sure a specific model works in their enterprise landscape,” he says. “With quantum, the probability of failing is higher because you haven’t proven anything and there’s no common baseline against which to measure success.”

What would success look like for Wells Fargo? “It is going to be a case of milestones being hit as opposed to very specific outcomes,” Mehta says. “Can I do multiple simulations? Fourier transformations? Differential calculus? Milestones will measure when we move from very basic discrete math to more sophisticated [computations].”

The ultimate goal for Wells Fargo is “a strong library of mathematical capabilities that you can build a use case off of,” Mehta says.

Laying the groundwork

Because success in quantum computing is checking off a list systematically, Mehta advises companies to engage in a low-intensity but long-term program. “You cannot put all your discretionary spend on this, but do research consistently,” he advises. The payoff is huge but it could be a long time away.

451 Research analyst James Sanders also advises patience and playing the long game. Sanders, who is part of 451’s S&P Global Market Intelligence practice, says companies need to start building software now.

“Now is the time to start investigating what potential business problems your enterprise cannot solve today because of a lack of computing power,” Sanders says. “It’s time to dust those off the shelf and ask if these problems can be handled through quantum computing.”

That landscape assessment process is the first in a five-stage set of recommendations from technology consulting firm Capgemini on how organizations can prepare for the quantum advantage. “Assessment is a critical part of it; you need to engage data scientists and business experts to identify the problems in your industry and in your organization that cannot be solved with traditional computers and that have the potential of being solved with quantum computing,” says Satya Sachdeva, vice president of insights and data at Sogeti, part of Capgemini.

Among the firm’s other recommendations: build a small team of experts; translate the most potent use cases to small-scale quantum experiments; strike long-term partnerships with technology providers to overcome technical obstacles; and develop a long-term strategy to scale up the skills base.

Enterprises looking to get started have plenty of options, says Lian Jye Su, principal analyst at global technology intelligence firm ABI Research. “Public cloud players such as Alibaba, Amazon, Google, and IBM offer researchers services to remotely run quantum programs and experiments,” Su says. Developers can now build quantum applications using IBM’s Qiskit, Google’s Cirq, Amazon Braket, and others, which are “open-source libraries designed for optimization of quantum circuits for quantum-classical or quantum-only applications, including machine learning,” Su said. “All these services are available online.”

Early mover advantage

While experts expect quantum and classical computing to coexist long into the future with certain processes offloaded to quantum and then looped back into conventional processing, the time is now for enterprises to dive in, Sachdeva says. “It’ll be an early mover advantage and if you delay that advantage will be lost,” he says.

As for Wells Fargo, it is keeping its quantum program on a slow burn. Mehta says CIOs have to keep all advanced research projects going at the same time. “You still need to continue to Excellerate your other non-quantum capabilities, whether it’s cloud-based specialized infrastructure or other technologies, in parallel,” Mehta says. “At some point when quantum materializes and the [computing capabilities] converge, it’s going to be extremely disruptive in a positive way.”

Now is the time to prepare for that disruption as Wells Fargo is doing.

“We believe that quantum is at a stage where classical computing was 30 to 40 years ago,” Mehta says. “That said, it will evolve much faster than anything we have seen before. Not engaging is not an option. This will be the defining technology for the future.”

Killexams : Is Your Well-Meaning Intervention Having the Opposite Effect? Here’s How to Fix it

Neither are true. According to a recent peer-reviewed study that just came out in Science, one of the world’s top academic journals, you would be more likely to crash, not less. Talk about unintended consequences!

The study examined seven years of data from 880 electric highway signs, which showed the number of deaths so far this year for one week each month as part of a safety campaign. The researchers found that the number of crashes increased by 1.52% within three miles of the signs on these safety campaign weeks compared to the other weeks of the month when the signs did not show fatality information.

That’s about the same impact as raising the speed limit by four miles or decreasing the number of highway troopers by 10%. The scientists calculated that the social costs of such fatality messages amount to $377 million per year, with 2,600 additional crashes and 16 deaths.

The cause? Distracted driving. These “in-your-face” messages, the study finds, grab your attention and undermine your driving. In other words, the same reason you shouldn’t text and drive.

Supporting their hypothesis, the scientists discovered that the increase in crashes is higher when the reported deaths are higher. Thus, later in the year as the number of reported deaths on the sign goes up, so does the percentage of crashes. And it’s not the weather: the effect of showing the fatality messages decreased by 11% between January and February, as the displayed number of deaths resets for the year. They also uncovered that the increase in crashes is largest in more complex road segments, which require more focus from the driver. 

Their research also aligns with other studies. One proved that increasing people’s anxiety causes them to drive worse. Another showed drivers fatality messages in a laboratory setting and determined that doing so increased cognitive load, making them distracted drivers.

If the authorities actually paid attention to cognitive science research, they would never have launched these fatality message advertisements. Instead, they relied on armchair psychology and followed their gut intuitions on what should work, rather than measuring what does work. The result was what scholars call a boomerang effect, meaning when an intervention produces an effect opposite to that intended.

Unfortunately, such boomerang effects happen all-too-often. Consider another safety campaign, the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign between 1998 and 2004, which the US Congress funded to the tune of $1 billion. Using professional advertising and public relations firms, the campaign created comprehensive marketing efforts that targeted youths aged 9 to 18 with anti-drug messaging, focusing on marijuana. The messages were spread by television, radio, websites, magazines, movie theaters and other venues, and through partnership with civic, professional, and community groups, with the intention for youths to see two to three ads per week.

A 2008 National Institutes of Health-funded study found that indeed, youths did get exposure to two to three ads per week. However, on the whole, more exposure to advertising from the campaign led youth to be more likely to use marijuana, not less! 

Why? The authors find evidence that youths who saw the ads got the impression that their peers used marijuana widely. As a result, the youths became more likely to use marijuana themselves. Indeed, the study found that those youths who saw more ads had a stronger belief that other youths used marijuana, and this belief made starting to use marijuana more likely. Talk about a boomerang effect!

Of course, it’s not only government authorities whose campaigns suffer from boomerang effects. Consider Apple’s recent highly popular “Apple at Work” advertising campaign. Its newest episode, launched in March 2022, is called “Escape from the Office.” It features a group of employees who, when told they must come back to the office as the pandemic winds down, instead chose to quit and launched an office-less startup using Apple products.

A week before the launch of its ad campaign extolling remote work and slamming the requirement to return to the office, Apple demanded that its own employees return to the office. That juxtaposition did not play well with the 7,500 of Apple’s 165,000 employees who are part of an Apple Slack room for remote work. 

One employee wrote “They are trolling us, right?” and others termed the ad “distasteful” and “insulting.” After all, the ad illustrates how Apple helps corporate employees work from home effectively. Why can’t Apple’s own staff do so, right? That hypocrisy added to the frustration of Apple employees, with some already quitting. Again, a clear boomerang effect at play.

We know that message campaigns – whether on electric signs or through advertisements – can have a substantial effect. That fits broader extensive research from cognitive science on how people can be impacted by nudges, meaning non-coercive efforts to shape the environment so as to influence people’s behavior in a predictable manner. For example, a successful nudging campaign to reduce car accidents involved using smartphone notifications that helped drivers evaluate their performance during each trip. Using nudges informing drivers of their personal average performance and personal best performance, as measured by accelerometers and gyroscopes, resulted in a reduction of accident frequency of over one and a half years.

Those with authority – in government or business – frequently attempt to nudge other people based on their mental model of how others should behave. Unfortunately, their mental models are often fundamentally flawed, due to dangerous judgment errors called cognitive biases. These mental blindspots impact decision making in all life areas, including business to relationships. Fortunately, latest research has shown effective strategies to defeat these dangerous judgment errors, such as by constraining our choices to best practices and measuring the impact of our interventions.

Unfortunately, such reliance on best practice and measurements of interventions of such techniques is done too rarely. Fatality signage campaigns have been in place for many years without assessment. The federal government ran the anti-drug campaign from 1998 to 2004 until finally the measurement study came out in 2008. 

Instead, what the authorities need to do is consult with cognitive and behavioral science experts on nudges before they start their interventions. And what the experts will tell you is that it’s critical to evaluate in small-scale experiments the impact of proposed nudges. That’s because, while extensive research shows nudges do work, only 62% have a statistically significant impact, and up to 15% of desired interventions may backfire.

Nonetheless, Texas, along with at least 28 other states, has pursued mortality messaging campaigns for years, without testing them effectively by behavioral scientists Behavioral science is critical here: when road signs are tested by those without expertise in how our minds work such as engineers, the results are often counterproductive. For example, a group of engineers at Virginia Tech did a study of road signs that used humor, popular culture, sports, and other nontraditional themes with the goal of provoking an emotional response. They measured the neuro-cognitive response of participants who read the signs and found that messages “messages with humor, and messages that use word play and rhyme elicit significantly higher levels of cognitive activation in the brain… an increase in cognitive activation is a proxy for increased attention.”

The researchers decided that because the drivers paid more attention, therefore the signs worked. Guess what? By that definition the fatality signs worked, too! They worked to cause drivers to pay attention to the fatality numbers, and therefore be distracted from the road. That’s an example of how NOT to do a study. The goal of testing road signs should be the consequent number of crashes, not whether someone is emotionally aroused and cognitively loaded by the sign.

But there is good news. First, it’s very doable to run an effective small-scale study testing an intervention in most cases. States could set up a safety campaign with 100 electric signs in a diversity of settings and evaluate the impact over three months on driver crashes after seeing the signs. Policymakers could ask researchers to track the data as they run ads for a few months in a variety of nationally representative markets for a few months and assess their effectiveness. More broadly, any leader should avoid relying on armchair psychology and test their intuitions before deploying internal and external initiatives. Our feelings about how other people may respond often lead us astray due to our mental blindspots, requiring leaders to show humility and decrease their confidence in their gut impulses.

Killexams : Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2017) Ultrabook review: No touchscreen, but has everything else [UPDATED]

If you're looking for portability, there's plenty of options out there. While Dell turned heads back in 2015 with its Infinity Display on the XPS 13, you have to decide if you want an Ultrabook, a tablet, a convertible like the Yoga Book, or to just use your phone.

Today I'm going to take a look at the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon. This is the 5th generation of the X1 Carbon, and as its name implies, it's built with a carbon-fiber reinforced chassis. Starting at just over $1,300, the device sports a thin bezel (although not Infinity Display thin), solid construction, and the iconic Lenovo ThinkPad keyboard, complete with TrackPoint (the red mouse nub).


The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon comes in five base configurations, ranging in price from $1,322 all the way up to $2,340. All of the configurations provide the same form factor as well as the same 14" Full HD (1920x1080) IPS screen. It's important to note that the X1 Carbon does not offer a touch version, which seems strange for a new release, although a new Quad-HD display is expected in June so Lenovo may add touch to that screen. All of the displays are powered by an on-board Intel Graphics 620 card.

The base configuration has an Intel Core i5-7200u processor and comes equipped with a tiny 128GB SATA3 SSD, which I doubt many people will keep. It also includes 8GB of RAM, a 720p webcam, a fingerprint sensor, a ClickPad with three dedicated mouse buttons, and a TrackPoint for the old-school users.

If you want to equip your ThinkPad X1 Carbon with 16GB of RAM, you'll need to bump up the CPU, as that requires the Intel Core i5-7300U or i7-7600U. The RAM is soldered onto the board though, so if you want to upgrade, you need to do it at the time of purchase.

The model that Lenovo provided me for the review was powered by the Intel Core i5-7300 running at 2.60GHz, had 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD.

Wireless connectivity is handled by the Intel Dual Band Wireless AC(2x2) 8265 chip, which also supports Bluetooth 4.1. In addition, for those who need to be online while on the move, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon has an option to install a Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE-A modem for an additional $140.

When it comes to connectivity, the X1 Carbon sports two Intel Thunderbolt 3 ports (USB-C), one of which can be used to charge the device, two USB 3.0 ports (USB-A, one one each side of the laptop), and a full-sized HDMI port. There's also a standard headphone jack and a Kensington lock port.

Along with what was described above, there's a Discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) chip embedded in the machine. This is the most secure implementation of TPM, due to the fact that it's a dedicated chip, thus reducing the ability to attack it via software.


The design of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon isn't going to turn heads at the airport or make your friends jealous. It's not an ugly design by any means: The bezel is unobtrusive, the screen is sharp and bright, the shell is rubbery and grippy, and the carbon fiber gives the device a premium feel. The one negative, however, is that the matte rubber surface collects smudges fairly easily.

One of the best design decisions Lenovo made was with the laptop hinge. With the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, you have the ability to open the screen 180 degrees to lay the device down perfectly flat. I found that it was great to have the laptop completely open while sitting on the couch and practicing websites. The only thing that could've improved the design here would've been a touchscreen so that it's easier to scroll through pages.

Once you sit down and start using the device, you notice the little things that Lenovo did to make the X1 Carbon a pleasure. If you're a fan of the traditional Lenovo ThinkPad keyboard, it's still intact here, with the iconic nub (TrackPoint) between the G/H/B keys for those who prefer it to the ClickPad.

Speaking of the ClickPad, instead of using virtual buttons like many other laptops, there are three physical buttons placed above, and two hidden mechanical buttons at the bottom.

Operating System

The lower end devices comes pre-installed with Windows 10 Home edition, which is a strange decision by Lenovo considering the target market is clearly the enterprise. The upgrade to Windows 10 Pro is only $30, so I suspect most people will either order one of the more expensive models, or simply pay for the upgrade.


The X1 Carbon sticks with its roots in the input department, coming equipped with the standard high quality ThinkPad keyboard, the TrackPoint, and a ClickPad. Sadly, as we'll discuss later, the device does not have a touchscreen.

The keyboard is the star of the show, as anyone who has used a Lenovo laptop before can attest to. The keys are raised up fairly high and have a good springy feel to them so that you definitively know when you've pressed one. The keys are also full sized and have a good amount of space between them, making using the keyboard similar to that of a desktop. If you like to have a back-lit keyboard, you can turn that feature on by pressing the function key and the space bar.

The X1 Carbon has dedicated page up and page down buttons, unlike some of its competitors, which is extremely handy when browsing websites, especially given the lack of a touchscreen.

The keyboard isn't perfect though, and the biggest issue for me is the fact that the function key is placed to the left of the control key. As someone who uses control shortcuts, I found myself pressing the wrong key many times and trying to figure out why it wasn't working. This is a personal preference, and something that one would get used to with repeated use, but since most manufacturers put the control key all the way to the left, I'm not sure why Lenovo didn't follow suit.

When it comes to mouse controls, you have two options with the X1 Carbon: The iconic red TrackPoint (aka: pencil eraser or nub), and the ClickPad.

Lenovo has kept the standard TrackPoint from the old IBM days. For those who haven't used it before, the TrackPoint is a little red nub that sits in the center of the laptop, and by pushing it in different directions, you control the pointer on the screen. It's been a great input device for years, and in addition to the fine tuned control it provides, it also lets you move the mouse cursor without pulling your hands off of the home row of the keyboard.

Unfortunately, I encountered a serious flaw with the TrackPoint on the Carbon X1: The ClickPad's integrated mouse clicks don't seem to work with the TrackPoint. When pressing the left mouse button on the ClickPad, and then dragging the mouse with the TrackPoint, the system releases the click after a fraction of a second, making it impossible to select text in a Word document, use MS Paint, or any number of other things. The TrackPoint does still work with the physical mouse buttons at the top of the ClickPad, though.

For those who don't want to use the TrackPoint, the ClickPad works great and acts like most other trackpads you've used in the past, including the standard array of finger gestures to scroll and zoom. For example, tapping four fingers on the Clickpad brings up the Windows Notification Center, and swiping with three fingers lets you replicate the Alt-Tab functionality to switch between apps.

Where Lenovo's implementation is a little different than some others is the fact that in addition to the three physical buttons above the ClickPad, there are also two hidden buttons at the bottom. Pressing them gives a good "click," so you know you did it right, unlike the virtual ones that are available on some other offerings.

I thought I'd end up using the top buttons more than I actually did. With all of the latest laptops not having these physical buttons, I find I'm missing them less and less, but it's still a good feature to add for those who want it.


Lenovo claims that the ThinkPad Carbon X1 has a battery life of "up to 15 hours." That's a generous assessment for any mobile device, but I found that in my testing of the device, it never really came close to that. That said, under normal use of browsing websites, typing up some documents, and watching an occasional YouTube video, I was easily able to last just over 10 hours with the brightness set to roughly 50%. Your mileage will obviously vary based on what you're doing, but the battery life definitely does not disappoint.

Perhaps more importantly is how quickly the battery charges. The X1 Carbon uses a Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port to charge, and can go from 0% to 80% in roughly an hour. That's enough charge to deliver you another 8 hours of normal use.


The screen is the one thing that really disappointed me about the X1 Carbon. From latest reviews, I've come to expect not only a high quality screen, but one that also provides touch as an input. Although I've seen many people say touch is not necessary, it definitely does make a device easier to use, and I frequently found myself trying to scroll through webpages or click buttons by pressing the screen, so the lack of that feature is a severe disadvantage compared to Lenovo's competitors.

The screen resolution is limited to only Full HD (1920x1080), and while this isn't a show stopper, it's nice to hear that Lenovo is planning on releasing a Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display in June, although I didn't receive any other details about the upcoming release.

The screen itself has good brightness, at 300 nits, and the display is sharp and crisp. In some ways, the lack of a QHD display is a good thing, as Windows 10 occasionally has scaling issues when running older software, and with only a 14" screen, the additional resolution isn't strictly necessary. For those who want to save battery life, running at 30% brightness in a normal office environment was still easy to use.


As with any Ultrabook, we have modest expectations when it comes to audio because there's just no way for manufacturers to bypass the laws of physics when it comes to the size and depth of a speaker.

The X1 Carbon places the speakers on the bottom of the laptop, underneath the palm rest. The result is a mixed bag. When using the device on a flat surface, the sound is actually pretty good, for a laptop. Cranking the volume up doesn't cause much distortion, and unlike some other devices, I was able to actually enjoy some music.

If you're using the ThinkPad X1 Carbon on your lap, it's a whole different story. Because the speakers are up front and aim down, the sound becomes muffled and practically unusable. I would recommend switching to headphones if you're using the laptop while sitting on the couch.


All of the design, appearance, and features mean nothing if the device can't work as your daily driver. Luckily, the X1 Carbon has great performance to go along with its nice array of features. As with all Ultrabooks, this one is powered by a relatively weak Intel 620 graphics card, so don't expect strong video game performance. However, since the target market for the device is the working professional, that's not surprising.

I began by running the X1 Carbon through the PCMark Creative, Work, and Home tests, and the device managed to crush the competition, besting the HP Elite x2 that I reviewed late last year. How much that translates into real world performance is up for debate, but it's clear that the latest ThinkPad X1 Carbon can easily run whatever productivity workloads you want to throw at it.

If you want to see the raw reports, you can find them here:

On the gaming side, the results were still better than any other laptop I've reviewed, but the difference wasn't as dramatic and again, I doubt most people will be able to notice on most games. The Ice Storm test was the only notable exception, clocking in nearly 40% higher than its nearest competitor.

Again, the raw reports can be found here:

3dMark has also released a couple of new benchmarks that I've never run before. Without knowing how previous laptops faired in the test, it's hard to say if these results are good or not, but I'll include them for future reference. On the first test, Time Spy, the X1 Carbon scored 279. The second test, API Overhead, is measured differently. Instead of a single number to represent performance, the test breaks the results down into four categories: DirectX 11 Multi-threaded draw calls per second (518,698), DirectX 11 Single-threaded draw calls per second (483,603), DirectX 12 draw calls per second (2,216,076), and Vulkan draw calls per second (1,594,440).


One of the biggest selling points for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon over some of its competitors is the security features that it builds in. The fingerprint sensor, for example, is the best I've ever used on a laptop. Unlike cheaper models that make you swipe your finger over the sensor in order to read it, the X1 Carbon lets you simply press your finger on it to unlock your machine.

The device also has a dTPM chip, which is the most secure and most expensive implementation of TPM. The chip is dedicated to security, and includes tamper resistance as well. Since services like BitLocker rely on TPM to function, this provides extra peace of mind. In addition, the inclusion of vPro will deliver enterprises an easier way to manage and control the X1 Carbon.

Another great selling point for the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is the fact that it includes both USB-C and USB-A ports on the same device, something we're starting to see less of on the market. With all of the various USB-A devices (especially thumbdrives) available, it's a good idea to keep these around a little longer.

Finally, it looks like Lenovo is keeping bloatware to a minimum on the device. There's a few Lenovo-specific scanning tools to check the health of the system, provide support, and optimize the usage, as well as a Lenovo-specific photo viewer. A couple of standard games, like Candy Crush Soda Saga are included too, but those should probably be removed. Regardless, the desktop was not cluttered with icons, so overall I was impressed with the lack of bloat.

Noise and Heat

Unlike some other Ultrabooks, the X1 Carbon does have a fan. It's situated on the bottom of the device, but in my testing I found that it rarely ever turned on, except during the video benchmarking tests. Even then, the fan noise was barely perceptible.

The device also stayed very cool to the touch during normal daily use. While benchmarking, it felt slightly warm to the touch, but nothing that would be too noticeable in use.


If you're a fan of Lenovo laptops, you'll absolutely love the refinements and upgrades the company has made to the fifth generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon. The keyboard remains one of the best in the business, and the flexibility to use the TrackPoint or ClickPad to move your cursor, as well as having buttons both above and below the ClickPad itself, make using the device a pleasure. While individuals may not care about some of great security features, such as a quality fingerprint reader, a tamper-resistant TPM chip, and vPro, enterprise buyers will love them.

There really are very few things to dislike about the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. While I've grown used to using a touchscreen, not everyone will agree that the lack of this feature is a negative. The function key is where I would expect the Control key to be, but that's an oddity that can be learned. That leaves price as the main negative for the laptop, and though it's expensive, it's not out of line for a high quality, enterprise-ready device.

UPDATE: User warwagon asked to see the device with the bottom removed, so I'm adding that image here.

The back of the ThinkPad Carbon X1 is held on with five small Phillips head screws and then snaps out. You can tell that the components are not meant to be user replaceable, which is common with Ultrabooks due to the density of the devices.

  • Lunit to present five abstracts highlighting the practical effectiveness of Lunit AI suite in precision diagnostic practices
  • Lunit's AI imaging biomarker leads to better prediction of breast cancer risk
  • Lunit INSIGHT CXR demonstrates its ability as part of a prognosis and intervention prediction model

SEOUL, South Korea, July 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Lunit has announced the presentation of five abstracts featuring its AI solutions for chest and breast radiology at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) Meeting 2022, held in Vienna, Austria, July 13th through 17th.

Lunit INSIGHT MMG (left) and Lunit INSIGHT CXR (right)

The ECR, along with the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), is the world's largest radiology congress, attended by renowned radiologists and medical device giants around the globe.

One of Lunit's presentations will focus on the company's AI-powered imaging biomarker for breast cancer risk assessment in mammography. The study demonstrates the AI-powered Imaging Biomarker in Mammography (IBM), developed by Lunit, making it possible to precisely forecast the risk of breast cancer for the next 5 years with a C-index of 0.684.1

Two joint studies by Lunit and the University of Cambridge explore the possibility of Lunit INSIGHT MMG, an FDA-cleared and CE-marked breast cancer detection AI product, being used to Excellerate the UK breast screening workflow. The studies showed that Lunit INSIGHT MMG could play a role in the double practicing screening settings and in particular, could help to increase the detection of interval cancers, which are detected between routine screening cycles.

Furthermore, a joint study with the University of Basel focuses on Lunit's CE-marked chest x-ray AI solution, Lunit INSIGHT CXR. According to the study, the software analyzed 150 chest x-ray images with 97.3% accuracy and reduced the average practicing time from 23.2 seconds to 14.1 seconds. The findings indicate that radiologists can substantially Excellerate accuracy and productivity with the assistance of Lunit INSIGHT CXR.

Another major study that used medical data from nine COVID-19 treatment centers in Korea revealed the clinical efficacy of utilizing Lunit INSIGHT CXR as part of the prognosis and intervention prediction model for patients with COVID-19. When Lunit INSIGHT CXR was combined with other clinical modes and data, the model showed significantly improved prediction capabilities for patients' prognosis (e.g., ICU admission, in-hospital mortality) and required medical interventions (e.g., O2 supplementation, mechanical ventilation, use of ECMO).

"Through the studies, Lunit has demonstrated the credibility of our AI-powered diagnostics solutions as well as how AI can make a significant difference in various medical practices," said Brandon Suh, CEO of Lunit.
