The Huawei MateBook X Pro is ultra-thin and powered by the 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor. It has a full-featured 13.9-inch screen and a 3k touch-enabled display while boasting a battery life of 57.4Wh.

"Our smartphones are already outstanding at object recognition. We wanted to see if in a short space of time we could teach it to not only drive a car, but to use its AI capabilities to see certain objects, and be taught to avoid them," according to Andrew Garrihy, Chief Marketing Officer, Huawei Western Europe while talking about the RoadReader project.
