Intel CEO addresses chip concerns at CES

Intel CEO addresses chip concerns at CES

To that end, Krzanich says Intel is working to create "immersive" and "volumetric" media that could attract more interest from mainstream consumers. Intel's CEO, Brian Krzanich, delighted audiences with his ambitious vision of the future, ideas that have percolated throughout CES 2018.

"This has been a major research effort by Intel and today we have a fully functioning neuromorphic research chip", Krzanich said. But before that, it is going it change how we view sports, entertainment and gaming. In the past, we have told you about the company's brain-like Loihi chip.

Then Krzanich turned to his prepared keynote address, which featured flying drones and a guest appearance from former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and National Football League analyst Tony Romo. This theme was expressed by Intel stating, "To power the technology of the future and create incredible new experiences, we need to unlock the power of data".

The CPU giant modestly made the case for a "camera-first" autonomous vehicle strategy, a plan that exploits the proliferation of camera-based ADAS systems to build a "Roadbook" that helps robocars drive safely.

Intel Corporation is making fast progress scaling superconducting quantum computing test chips to higher qubit counts - from 7, to 17 and now 49 qubits (left to right).

Krzanich also disclosed details for the company's new automated driving platform, which combines automotive-grade Intel Atom processors with Mobileye EyeQ5 chips to deliver a platform with scalability and versatility for L3 (Level 3) to L5 (Level 5) autonomous driving.

Intel has also signed a partnership with Ferrari North America that will see the Ferrari Challenge motorsport event using its Xeon processors and deep learning technology to collect and stream video from the event, as well as mine the resulting data for insights. On Sunday, Nvidia and Uber announced that the ride-hailing service will use the former's chips for an artificial intelligence computing system for a fleet of self-driving cars.

The unveiling of Intel's 49-qubit test chip follows an announcement from IBM in December that it had developed a prototype 50-qubit machine. By using these quantum chips, Intel and others believe that they can solve problems of much higher complexity than traditional silicon microprocessors-though Intel and its rivals have invested billions in continually improving those chips.

The Volocopter VC200 is essentially a large drone that people can sit in, but the company hopes the oversized drone will soon start offering autonomous air taxi rides.

He announced Intel is partnering with Ferrari North America to bring the power of AI to the Ferrari Challenge North America Series that will take place on six courses in the USA this year.

Intel will also deploy its True VR technology during the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang in February.

Observers who were anticipating Intel's usual bravado, including boasts that AV processor's TOPS and watts are bigger and better than others, departed disappointed.
