The recent silicon photonics avalanche photodetector announcement is an excellent example of how industry and academia, working together, can achieve breakthrough results. Combining the expertise of industry engineers and researchers with the knowledge of universities allows for greater advances.
What would you do if the Internet were a million times faster? Hard to imagine the possibility isn’t it? Well that’s one potential for a future technology – “Silicon Photonics” – a technology that uses everyday silicon to send and … Read more
On December 7, Intel published world record results for a silicon-based photodetector in Nature Photonics, and we wanted to explain the results in a little more detail in this blog. Before launching into the “in’s and out’s” of avalanche photodetectors … Read more
I had the pleasure of recently attending the joint OECD-World Bank Conference on Innovation and Sustainable Growth. Innovation policy appears to be having a bit of a renaissance. As OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría put it, with so much innovation happening … Read more
Earlier this year, I wroteabout the Intel® Rural Connectivity Platform (Intel® RCP) research project. There has been a lot of interest in this technology and I am happy to provide an update from platform manager Joyce Kuo.
One year ago, at the Intel Developer Forum, I spoke about how as computing technology advances and broadband connectivity becomes ubiquitous, today’s nascent virtual worlds and online games will evolve into a “3-D Internet.” I believe that eventually these immersive … Read more
What has 3 fingers, 2 cameras, and a segway? The Personal Robot at the Intel Research lab in Pittsburgh! Researchers from Intel and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) have been developing a robot that can function autonomously in a typical home … Read more
Congratulations to Konstantina (Dina) Papagiannaki, senior researcher at the Intel Research Pittsburgh lab, who was named ACM SIGCOMM “Rising Star”. Each year, ACM recognizes a young researcher – an individual no older than 35 – who has made outstanding research … Read more
Intel’s Pittsburgh Research Lab opened its doors this week for a tour of the fascinating exploratory research they’re doing on future technologies including a natural gesture interface for games built as a novel application of SLIPstream parallelization techniques. The Pittsburgh … Read more
