Intel subsidiary to supply autonomous driving technology to 2mn vehicles

12 January 2018

During his keynote speech yesterday Krzanich also discussed some details surrounding Intel's new automated driving platform.

During the performance, musicians "played data" via gesture control while wearing smart gloves; drones and AI musicians played music learned in real-time; and location technology was paired with sensors and cameras to present data collected from dancing and acrobatics.

Intel shares were under pressure last week after researchers pointed to the so-called Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities affecting the chips powering most modern PCs and many mobile devices.

Krzanich had kicked off his CES 2018 keynote by addressing Meltdown and Spectre, saying it is "truly remarkable" how so many tech companies have come together to research and resolve these issues.

Shortly before taking the stage Monday night, Krzanich sent a memo to employees announcing a reorganization that creates a new group within Intel to guard against security lapses. "Our primary discussion has been to keep customer data safe". "And we are working tirelessly on these issues to ensure it stays that way".

Intel announced the opening of a Los Angeles-based studio space dedicated to the production of virtual reality, augmented reality and other cutting-edge content.

How artificial intelligence, 5G connectivity, and big data will shape the technology-centric future were all talking points at this year's Intel CES exhibit. By 2020 the average person will generate 1.5GB of data a day, a vehicle will generate 4TB, a plane 40TB. A self-driving Ford Fusion made its way onto the keynote stage with Krzanich as well, making it the first 100-vehicle test fleet run by Israel-based software company Mobileye, which Intel acquired for $15 billion in 2017. But there are two generators greater than that. An NFL football game recorded this way will generate three terabytes of data per minute, Krzanich said. "That's the equivalent of 700,000 people". The company, he said, is committed to forwarding the cause of quantum computing with a lab in Holland dedicated to working on the quantum computers of tomorrow. So, powered by vast amounts of data from scores of high definition cameras and the power of computing that can make sense of all this data real-time, Intel is confident that it will change the way movies are made. Although Intel has its 7- and 17-a systems, Krzanich had another to unveil to the audience. "If you uncover such violations through your examinations, we expect you to enforce our laws to the fullest extent possible". While one chip deals with neuromorphic computing, the second one is all about quantum computing.

He said that a sizeable majority of chips by Intel will be set right within seven days and the rest will be rectified by the end of January.
