Microsoft joins DICT in National ICT Summit 2018!

"Empowering the Filipino through Digital Transformation”. That is the theme of this year’s National Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Summit held in Davao City. The summit is the culminating event of a month long celebration of ICT in the Philippines.

Since 2008, June of every year has been celebrated as ICT Month by virtue of Proclamation No. 1521, series of 2008. This is in recognition of the power of ICT as a strategic tool in governance, in delivering government services, and in driving economic growth.

The National ICT Summit was well attended, with over 500 government executives, ICT managers and practitioners, local government officials, academics, the private sector, students, and ICT industry players participating in the event.

Gracing the event was President Rodrigo Roa Duterte who was guest of honor and speaker at the two-day summit.”

A faster and more efficient Government

In today’s digital world, it’s clear how huge ICT’s role is in the development of government services. Throughout the entire month of June, the DICT showcased projects that harnessed ICT to improve the efficiency of government processes that positively impact the Filipino public. Through seminars, conferences, fora, focus group discussions and technical trainings, they have presented and discussed emerging ICT technologies, products, services and new paradigms.

At the summit, the DICT showed how ICT transforms the way government flagship and mission-critical projects particularly the "Build, Build, Build" Program and the "Ambisyon Nation 2040" are efficiently implemented, monitored and managed.

To empower the Filipino, the government is looking to ICT to improve access to accurate information and develop more efficient services.This is through complementing government ICT plans, programs, policies, guidelines and standards affecting processes and the delivery of information and services to the people.

Digital transformation, cybersecurity, and AI

Also present at the National ICT summit was Microsoft, a digital transformation leader who presented global best ICT practices, emerging technology solutions, tools and paradigms that will allow the Philippines to leap-frog development stages.

In a keynote presentation, Microsoft Philippines discussed the economic impact of digital transformation, the hidden costs of cybersecurity, the future that is artificial intelligence, as well as the value of ICT in the development of the country.

“ICT remains a core component in the transformation and development of the Philippines. As the world moves toward a more digital way of life, so must our country. Technology is the great equalizer, and the key towards reaching our full potential,” said Christian Lim, Country COO - Microsoft Philippines.

As the country embraces digital technologies, Microsoft urged attendees to be vigilant and reminded them of the value of cybersecurity -- in terms of economic loss and loss of trust. Similar to the Comelec breach in 2016, breaches can come from anywhere, so it is extremely important the government’s data is secure.

Moreover, AI is a technology that is becoming more pervasive and can be a big contributor to the Philippines’ digital transformation. In particular, Microsoft highlighted conversational AI, such as chatbots, and how it is already making waves around the world. In fact, AI is already being utilized to serve local communities in other Asian nations like China and Japan.

“Microsoft is all about empowering people and organizations with technology. So it goes without saying that we are staunch supporters of the administration and the DICT’s mission to empower Filipinos through digital transformation,”said Lim. “Through the digital transformation of our government processes, we don’t just address operational inefficiencies, but create meaningful economic impact as well, leading to further development of the Philippines.”

The all new ZenBook Pro Series is a family of high-performance laptops for professionals that introduces the futuristic new ScreenPad — an ASUS innovation that revolutionizes the way users work and interact with their laptop.

ScreenPad cleverly combines a touchpad with a high-resolution, full-color touchscreen to offer novel ways of interacting intelligently with both Windows apps and dedicated programs called ScreenPad Apps. Adaptive functions with context-sensitive tools enhance workflow and productivity, and ScreenPad is fully customizable to allow users to personalize their experience.

The new ZenBook Pro Series continues the all-conquering legacy of the ZenBook Pro family, offering class-leading performance in slim, lightweight and supremely elegant packages. Powered by the latest 8th Generation Intel Core processors with up to 16GB RAM, gaming-grade NVIDIA® discrete graphics, and the fastest PCIe® 3.0 x4 SSDs, ZenBook Pro is designed to handle the most demanding tasks with ease. Comprehensive connectivity includes up to gigabit-class 802.11ac Wi-Fi, USB-C with Thunderbolt™ 3, USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A, and standard HDMI output. 

ZenBook Pro Series laptops also feature face recognition and built-in support for Amazon Alexa  voice services, giving users new, smart ways to interact with their laptop. They can sign in effortlessly using just their face with Windows Hello, or enjoy hands-free control using Alexa's voice recognition to get more done: hear the weather, listen to music, schedule appointments and more.

Ultra-Compact Vivobook S15 (S530) and S14 (S430) Ultrabooks 

The VivoBook S15 (S530) and S14 (S430) is a pair of stylish and lightweight laptops designed for the young, and the young at heart. Both laptops feature bold color-blocking designs, with five vibrant color options and several textured finishes that let users fully express their personalities. The ErgoLift hinge replicates the feel of typing on a desktop keyboard for more comfortable typing, while the new three-sided NanoEdge display design provides an immersive viewing experience. S15 and S14 are powered by up to an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, with NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 discrete graphics. Both laptops feature dual-storage designs, with VivoBook S15 featuring up to a 512GB SSD and 2TB HDD. 

The extremely portable S15 and S14 are smaller than other laptops in their class, with profiles that taper to just 18mm at their thinnest point. The 15.6-inch S15 weighs only 1.8kg, while the 14-inch S14 has an overall weight of 1.4kg.  Both laptops can easily slip into a messenger bag or backpack.
All VivoBooks now feature a high-quality battery with all-day battery life and a lifespan that’s up to 3X-longer than standard lithium-ion batteries. Fast-charge technology enables users to charge a low battery to 60% in as little as 49 minutes. Integrated ASUS Battery Health Charging technology also makes for a safer charging experience, with measures designed to decrease the battery expansion rate during charging to help ensure the battery stays in good condition.

Must have eSports-ready gaming laptop? – the ROG GL504

The e-sports ready Strix SCAR II and Hero II, follow-ups to the successful e-sports gaming laptops built exclusively for FPS and MOBA titles, have an all-new compact design and front light bar with customizable Aura Sync lighting. Both laptops feature the world’s first 144Hz super-narrow-bezel display with an ultrafast 3ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time, a HyperStrike Pro gaming keyboard for improved control, and HyperCool Pro technology to cool their high-performance CPU and GPU. They are also the world’s first laptops to feature multi-antenna Wi-Fi for improved connectivity. 

For maximum advantage in fast-paced games, Strix SCAR II and Hero II boast the world's first 144Hz super-narrow-bezel display with an ultrafast 3ms GTG response time. This new design results in less distracting frame, so chassis dimensions can be reduced to a minimum — both these laptops are 2.33cm narrower than their predecessors, but don’t sacrifice precious screen space. They are lighter, too, with an overall weight of just 2.4kg for gaming on the go. A unique rubber frame surrounds the display to protect it from damage when the lid is closed, it also visually enhances the slimness of the bezel for a more immersive feel. The 144Hz panel and 3ms response time ensures super smooth and clear visuals, allowing gamers to react instantly and precisely to what’s happening in-game.

Both Strix SCAR II and Hero II feature a gaming keyboard with HyperStrike Pro technology for decisive command and control. The keyboard has a desktop-inspired layout, including four hotkeys, customizable Aura Sync-compatible RGB backlighting across four zones, and ergonomically-designed keys with 0.25mm-deep keycap curves.

Exclusive ROG Overstroke technology enables earlier key actuation, and has a longer overstroke distance for fast, accurate and effortless keystrokes. The keyboard has specially-highlighted WASD (for SCAR II) or QWER (for Hero II) key groups with transparent key caps, and N-key rollover technology. The keyboard is also rated with a 20-million-key-press lifespan for durability.
