Digital future of reading showcased at book fair

Tech firms are showcasing the latest digital technologies and products to help people read and learn at the 2020 Shanghai Book Fair.

In the fair’s Future Reading Pavilion, innovations on display include artificial intelligence for online education and digital entertainment, next-generation e-book reading and an interactive and portable audio library.

Colorful e-book readers and AI-featured student tablets are displayed in the booth of iFlytek, an AI firm with applications such as voice recognition, machine translation and knowledge graphs. Its latest e-book supports 4,096 colors, which allows users to read cartoons and animation contents with e-ink technology. The e-ink, an eye-protection technology, is adopted by Kindle models but Amazon doesn’t have Kindle supporting color.

iFlytek also launched a student pad X2 Pro, featuring interactive learning content in classes such as math, English and physics.
