Intel has founded a new Intel Collaborative Research Institute for Computational Intelligence (ICRI-CI). The Institute will focus on long-term research in two directions: machine learning and heterogeneous computing architecture. Machine learning is critical to transform huge volumes of raw data … Read more
We are living in the Digital Age. Every day we interact with a multitude of electronic devices which are increasingly pervasive, mobile, and highly integrated. As Moore’s law continues to hold true, mobile and embedded systems will become even more … Read more
The Maker Faire, billed as the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth, is a celebration of creativity and innovation in arts, crafts, science and engineering. The first Maker Faire was run in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2006, and … Read more
While folks over at Slashdot discuss the topic of “VGA and DVI Ports To Be Phased Out Over Next 5 Years” there is active research at the Intel Visual Computing Institute* (IVCI) and DFKI that might present a few other interesting … Read more
Compared to computer games, movies and professional graphics tools the amount of 3D rendered, interactive web content is still rather minimal these days. When we shop online (e.g. deciding if we want to buy a new camera) we often get … Read more
Wireless connectivity is a prerequisite in most user devices today, from laptops, to phones, tablets, e-readers, etc. Usually radios reside on a separate die from the application processor, resulting in bulkier devices. Integration of the radio and application processor would enable smaller form factors for slimmer devices (maybe even miniature wearable devices), and can also reduce the cost of the overall solution. The low cost of such integrated processor+radio platform can further enable a host of new applications towards the vision of the “internet of things” where devices such as home appliances, sensors, etc communicate with each other, exchange information and can be actuated remotely.
