Future Tech: Scenes From Research@Intel Day
Intel offers a glimpse of tomorrow's technology at its annual R&D demo, highlighting everything from ray tracing graphics to robot bartenders.
Researchers, analysts and journalists from around the globe descended upon the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif. for this week's Research@Intel Day. Intel on Wednesday happily provided a comprehensive look at its long-term research plans, but the Santa Clara, Calif.-based chip giant played short-term developments much closer to the vest. "Clearly in areas like silicon technology, we say much less publicly than in other areas. Certainly we'll show you 32nm technology but probably not a lot about future architectures. Most of what you'll see, with exceptions, is five, six years in the future," said Intel CTO Justin Rattner in his keynote opening Research@Intel Day.
