It’s finally here: Three solid days devoted to the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) at San Francisco’s Moscone Center Aug. 16-18. From amazing experiences in virtual reality, 5G, autonomous driving, and IoT (including IoT in space!), IDF16 is sure to be out of this world.
Intel Thought Leaders
If you’ve attended IDF in years past, then you know that Brian Krzanich’s kick-off keynote is designed to expand your imagination for what technology can do. With Krzanich’s keynote “Inventing the Future: The Power of a Smart and Connected World,” prepare to expect the unexpected. Tues., Aug. 16, 9-10:30 a.m.
On day two, Murthy Renduchintala takes the stage for his inaugural IDF performance. We’ll hear what he has to say about the innovations that will drive the next revolution in technology as we shift to a truly connected world. His keynote, “Interconnectedness of Everything,” debuts Wed., Aug. 17, 9-10:30 a.m.
Sharing the stage with Murthy is the Diane Bryant speaking on the future of the data center and cloud infrastructure. She speaks on “Data Center: The Center of Possibility,” Wed., Aug. 17, 9-10:30 a.m. Learn more about the IDF keynote line up for 2016.
IoT Technical Sessions and Labs
I’m excited to say that this year, our presence is bigger and better. From retail, cars, and manufacturing, to lectures, demos and hands-on labs. You’ll even have an opportunity to hear from the architects of the Intel IoT Platform, one of the many highlights from the IoT track of technical sessions. Here are three sessions for each day of IDF16 that caught my attention right away. You can view the full list of more than 140 technical sessions here.

IoT Demos Galore
One of the best places to really experience how IoT is enabling amazing experiences in every facet of our lives is within the IoT Tech Showcase. That’s where you’ll find stories of amazing IoT-specific applications and the developers who are architecting a new and more collaborative world. Here are five demos that caught my eye:
- The Internet of Things for Space: Learn how engineers are rapidly prototyping new things that can utilize the sensing and communications technologies designed for IoT in space.
- Manageability in Retail: See how Intel vPro is being used in retail to manage everything form Point of Sale (POS) systems to digital signage.
- Bolt Bike Demo: Wind River collaborated with Bolt Motorbikes to sponsor a senior project at San Diego State University’s School of Engineering. You’ll be amazed at the result.
- Aftermarket Fleet Telematics Dongle for Connected Vehicles: Check out the technology behind a high performance edge-to-cloud telematics solution that supports location-based services, driver behavior analytics, engine diagnostics, and video retrieval.
- Augmented Reality: Delve into the technology that enables an art museum to use authenticated facial recognition to connect visitors to art in imaginative new ways.
