November 7, 2017 - Brian Krzanich [pictured], CEO of Intel, writes: Data is the most important force in society today, and the flood of data generated by intelligent, connected machines is the lifeblood for the future of technology innovation. This force inspires us to imagine and deliver data-rich innovations based on artificial intelligence (AI).

At Intel, we not only see the future, we’re building it. From large complex applications in the cloud to small low-power mobile devices at the edge, Intel significantly advances AI-based applications through the real-time analysis, collection and delivery of data. No longer is it enough to capture and transfer data; we must turn it into actionable insights to wring the full value out of it. That requires end-to-end computing solutions from the cloud to the edge.

Bringing artificial intelligence to the edge opens exciting new innovations across our lives, from personal safety and transportation to sports and entertainment. Critical to these innovations is the real-time understanding of the world around us. We see this with security cameras, drones and cell phones, and it will offer the foundation for autonomous driving’s future. These devices collect visual data – images and video – and analyze it for fast insights.

Today, at the Web Summit technology conference in Lisbon, Portugal, I demonstrated several data-fueled, leading-edge innovations from Intel that leverage data and AI with the potential to change the world in amazing new ways. More...
