In the opening address at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in San Francisco, the Chief Executive Officer of Intel, Brian Krzanich highlighted new products, tools and programs that support the growing personalization of computing and described the trends creating new opportunities for developers across an unprecedented breadth of technologies.
While noting that computing has become increasingly personal, enhancing nearly all aspects of life, Krzanich said, “Computers are on our desks, in our bags, in our clothes, in our homes and on our bodies. They are not only growing smarter and more connected, but gaining senses and becoming an extension of ourselves.”
He noted that an ecosystem was emerging around Intel to address growing opportunities for computing, detailing many of the essential products, technologies and tools from the company that will help developers make the differentiated experiences possible.
He also unveiled a number of updates to Intel Real Sense technology that will bring depth sensing to more devices and applications, and announced new collaborations for securing the Internet of Things (IoT), in addition to programs and toolkits for developers to help speed industrial IoT solutions to market.
And, for the highly personalized world of wearable computing, Krzanich provided updates on the Intel Curie model and previewed a new reality competition program called, “America’s Greatest Makers” produced by the Chief Executive Officer of United Artists Media Group, Mark Burnett and appearing across leading networks and properties of Turner Broadcasting.
Each year at IDF, Intel shares its vision for the future of technology innovation with developers and partners who will create the products, engineer the systems, render the movies, and power the toys and devices that create amazing experiences.
