Intel debuts flying 'car' at CES

12 January 2018

Krzanich's comments Monday did not address whether Intel planned to release updates for products that were more than 5 years old.

During his keynote address, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich announced the successful design, fabrication and delivery of a 49-qubit superconducting quantum test chip.

Intel will also tie up with SAIC Motor Corp Ltd 600104.SS , which will use Mobileye technology to develop cars in China, the chipmaker said.

Krzanich also added that the firm's autonomous vehicle efforts are being expanded into China following the inking of a partnership with SAIC Motor, a Chinese automaker.

The power of data is going to change a lot of things we do in the coming years. "Data is going to redefine how we experience life - in our work, in our homes..."

The technology around self-driving cars is rapidly evolving. Intel, along with fellow chipmakers AMD and ARM, has to come up with ways to continue reaping the benefits of that feature while making the chips more secure.

The move, which was allegedly held while Intel knew about the vulnerabilities, left Krzanich with just 250,000 shares - the bare minimum required by Intel under the terms of his employment. This theme was expressed by Intel stating, "To power the technology of the future and create wonderful new experiences, we need to unlock the power of data". Krzanich showed off another new chip during his keynote, and it's a doozy: A 49-qubit chip for quantum computing.

Aside from obtaining a Guinness World Records title for most unmanned vehicles airborne simultaneously from a single computer indoors, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich's keynote speech included a discussion for what's next in the data revolution.

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. A separate initiative, known as Intel Studios, used 100 cameras mounted in a giant circle to shoot a scene from all angles simultaneously, creating a voxel-based representation of the shot.

In the first half of 2018, Intel plans to partner with leading universities and research organizations and apply Loihi to more complex problems.

The Ferrari Challenge broadcast will use the processing power of Intel Xeon Scalable processors and the neonTM framework for deep learning not only to transcode, identify objects and events, and stream the experience to viewers online, but also to mine the resulting data for further insights for drivers and fans. "As audiences are moving from a flat screen to an immersive experience we'll be able to convey the world in a way closer to reality than cinema has ever been able to do before", Paramount CEO and Chairman Jim Gianopulos said Monday at CES.

In sports, Krzanich announced that Intel will enable the largest scale virtual reality event to date with the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 using Intel True VR technology.

Intel continued their themes of data and connectivity in the other aspects of their presentation.
