Intel: Making the Future Starts with Focus on AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is changing the world around us and will bring new capabilities to everything from smart factories to drones to sports to health care and to driverless cars. Data is the common thread across all these applications, and our strategy is to make Intel the driving force of the data revolution across every industry. As a data company, it is imperative that we deliver solutions that create, use and analyze the massive amounts of data that are generated each and every minute. Data inference, or finding useful structure in data, may indeed be the largest computational problem of our time. That is why AI is so important to Intel. It is also why we are announcing that Intel is aligning its AI efforts under me, in a single cross-Intel organization: the Artificial Intelligence Products Group (AIPG). Just as Intel has done in previous waves of computational trends, such as personal and cloud computing, Intel intends to rally the industry around a set of standards for AI that ultimately brings down costs and makes AI more accessible to more people – not only institutions, governments and large companies, as it is today.
