Software giant Microsoft is developing an interactive whiteboard that would interpret users' sketches to complete the diagrams they were drawing.
The firm will unveil the prototype as part of Techfest, an annual event where its researchers reveal some of the projects they are working on.
The demonstration of SketchInsight will be hosted by Bongshin Lee at the company's headquarters in Redmond, Washington, the BBC reports.
She will show how a user could draw an image on a large touchscreen to call on pre-loaded data to create interactive charts, maps or other diagrams.
According to the report, the digital canvas is designed to help workers make sense of 'big data', the growing amount of information available from sensors and other sources.
The project, which is at its early stage, is one of several large-screen technologies under development by Microsoft that it believes will become more common both at work and home in the future.
