Last week was Intel's annual Developer Forum conference. If you couldn't make it out to San Francisco, here's a summary of what you missed. First up? Intel dipping its toe into the automobile business. Intel is building its own fleet of self-driving cars and showed two test vehicles at an investor event at the 2016 Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco on Thursday, Aug. 18, 2016. Pictured is Intel’s Diane Bryant, executive vice president and general manager of the Data Center Group, discussing the connection between the internet of things and the data center, including machine and deep learning solutions.
Here's a look at one of Intel's test vehicles. While they aren't hitting the road in massive quantities yet, Intel stated that each self driving car will generated a tremendous amount of data — and the company is eyeing that as a big opportunity.
Not content with conquering land, Intel also wants to take to the skies. Madeleine Ong demonstrates the Yuneec drone, which builds a 3D map of its surrounds in order to better avoid obstacles while being able to follow a subject around.
Expect to see Intel Inside a wider and variety of objects, particularly as the Internet of Things takes off. The drones, for example, take advantage of Intel® RealSense™ Technology.
And once they've taken land and the skies, Intel wants to help create new worlds. The company is mixing its spacial awareness chops with their high-powered CPUs to try and become an essential player in the emerging world of virtual reality.
And the VR push is getting top executive attention: Here, Intel chief executive Brian Krzanich talks with Craig Raymond about the Project Alloy virtual reality headset.
Of course, it's not all hard work on cutting edge technology. Here, DJ Killa-Jewel works a turntable — connected to Intel NUC Mini PC.
