Intel’s Inventor of the Year Follows the Data

Vinodh Gopal, senior principal engineer at Intel in the Data Center Group’s System Innovation Lab, was honored as Intel’s 2019 Inventor of the Year.

How he’d describe his job to a 10-year-old: 

I work in the Data Center Group, which basically builds super powerful computer systems that run the world’s modern services. All our data such as photos, videos and documents get stored here, and these systems move all our data such as emails and messages around the world. My team improves the processing of all this data so that people can enjoy services like Google Docs and Classroom, shopping online via Amazon, playing online games, making video calls or watching their favorite shows on Netflix.
