Intel CEO addresses chip concerns at CES

Intel Addresses the Elephant in the Room CES 2018: Intel announces 'major breakthrough' in quantum computing chip

On that note, Intel's CEO is absolutely correct.

Two U.S. lawmakers are calling for an investigation into whether Intel's chief executive, Brian Krzanich, improperly sold company stock after learning of a serious security flaw in the tech giants' microchips before it was publicly disclosed.

Krzanich said that the collaboration of so many companies to the Spectre and Meltdown bugs had been "truly remarkable".

He recommended everyone apply updates form their operating system vendor as soon as they become available to protect themselves.

"We are working tirelessly on these issues to ensure it stays that way".

"We expect to solve key technical challenges that must be overcome to move quantum computing forward", Krzanich added.

The power of data is going to change a lot of things we do in the coming years.

"I spent my whole life watching tech make dramatic leaps".

A withdrawal notice doesn't mean Nafta would be killed - a country can give notice and then not actually leave. The Canadian loonie fell along with Mexico's peso and yields on Canada's government bonds.

Intel also said that Paramount Pictures will be the first major Hollywood studio to explore this technology together with Intel to see where this will lead for the next generation of visual storytelling. Intel Studios will have a huge volumetric video stage and post-production equipment. The video showed from an outside point of view a horse riding toward a group of cowboys engaged in a fight. "The incredible thing about this technology is that you can do the scene and then view it from any perspective", Mr. Krzanich said.

Krzanich said this will allow audiences to choose which character they want to view the movie from, and can be extended to such use cases as TV, advertising, and gaming.

Similarly, sports fans will be able to watch games from the perspective of their favorite quarterback or any other player, he said.

To date, he said, Intel has seen no sign that anyone has stolen data by exploiting the two vulnerabilities, known as Meltdown and Spectre. There are three high-resolution cameras at the front of the vehicle that enable a 180-degree view field and the auto image processor is able to see at a distance of up to 300 meters. One quarter of a football game would generate more data than the entire Library of Congress. We're told it's broadcasting thirty events from the Winter Olympics in South Korea in a month's time, both live and on-demand in VR.

Intel went big on autonomous driving on Monday, showcasing its first self-driving test auto and announcing a number of tie-ups with automakers to take the technology forward. SAIC is said to develop Levels 3, 4, and 5 autonomous vehicles based on Mobileye's technology.

Having this mapping information could help with the progression of autonomous cars.

"That sci-fi vision of the future is actually much closer than you think".

Finally, the keynote closed with a light show powered by 100 Shooting Star Mini drones that did not rely on Global Positioning System for navigation - something Mr Krzanich said was an official Guinness World Record.
