Intel scraps annual IDF event as it looks beyond PCs

PCWorld

After 20 years, Intel is scrapping its marquee annual Intel Developer Forum event, where tech enthusiasts gathered to load up on the chipmaker's news and technologies. IDF started off in 1997 as a small event in Palm Springs, California. The show was later moved to San Francisco and vastly expanded during a boom in the PC market. But with the PC market slowing down, the attraction of IDF has also dwindled. Intel's future isn't tied to PCs but instead to areas like data centers, autonomous cars, modems, the internet of things, and manufacturing.


Secretive Intel quietly woos makers in China

PCWorld

Intel is in transition right now: An executive shakeup this month laid the path for new boss Venkata Renduchintala to put his imprint on the company's PC, Internet of Things and software operations. So no wonder the vibe at this week's Intel Developer Forum in Shenzhen was mellow. Intel kept the show a low-key affair, choosing not to bring it to the attention of a worldwide audience, unlike previous years. But IDF Shenzhen remains an important event on Intel's calendar. China is a huge market, and it's also a place where the chip maker encourages small hardware shops in the alleys of Shenzhen to experiment with PC, mobile and now, IoT ideas.

Advancing Your Data Scientist Career: Paths to Success - IT Peer Network

#artificialintelligence

In the course of our work with Intel's data science and artificial intelligence initiatives, we often encounter people who are excited about the potential of artificial intelligence, and eager to learn more about the things Intel is doing to drive the industry forward. In many cases, these people have read about Intel's focus on AI, and now they are asking how they can get more involved in this forward-looking field. They often ask how they can advance their data science careers in the direction of AI. In Part 1 of this blog series, we talked about steps organizations can take to cultivate in-house expertise in advanced analytics and data science. In this second part of the post, we will take things down to a more personal level, and talk about steps individuals can take to chart a future that involves creating AI solutions.


Intel launches silicon photonics

ZDNet

Intel executive vice president Diane Bryant unveiled silicon photonics at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco on August 17, 2016. Intel on Tuesday announced it's launching silicon photonics, a product 16 years in the making, to enhance the use of optics for data center traffic management. It has a tremendous advantage over other silicon solutions, Intel executive vice president Diane Bryant said at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco. Intel is "the first to light up silicon," she said, integrating the laser light-emitting material onto silicon. It uses silicon lithography to align the laser with precision, she said, creating a cost advantage because it's automatically aligned.
