Along this year will present three products oriented to your created Nervana platform to increase the speed and ease of use, allowing a greater number of data professionals meet the most important challenges of the world related to technology standard.

Combined/virtual reality and artificial intelligence are two areas that Intel It is betting strong to boost innovation and allow a more rapid transformation to access new and greater opportunities, both for the industry and for consumers.

Analysts expect that by 2020 more than 50,000 million devices (wearables, sensors of inventories in establishments, vehicles of autonomous driving, urban infrastructure, medical equipment, etc.) to connect to Internet and it each other.

Networks are evolving to adapt to the large bandwidth demands created by the amount growing connected devices to access, analyze and share data in real time.

Artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is now a reality, from the most common (speech recognition to convert voice into text, tagging of photos and fraud detection) to the most innovative (precision medicine, prediction of injury and driving vehicles autonomous). AI will allow machines to increase human capacity, automating tedious or dangerous work, promote scientific discoveries and deal with social problems.

It is estimated that the global market for robotics and AI will grow to 153,000 million dollars in 2020, including 83,000 million for robotics and 70,000 million for IA-based analytical.

According to Intel, this year the technology will turn into something more profitable and widespread, with new applications that will arise in a wide range of sectors, creating major efficiencies for businesses and consumers. It will greatly improve the technology to support new applications for IA as, for example, natural language processing and the bots, opening the way to a more widespread adoption of this technology. Automatic and deep learning is going to more closely integrate devices connected to IoT, facilitating access to a deeper level of knowledge.

The company plans to introduce this year three products (Lake Crest, Knights Crest and Knights Mill) for your platform Nervana created to increase the speed and ease of use, allowing a greater number of data professionals meet the challenges more important the world standard technology in the sector.

In the first half will unveil an innovative technology of Nervana Systems tested on processors (with name of code Lake Crest), which will be offered later to customers for neural networks to provide high performance in deep learning and offering a high-density computer with high-bandwidth interconnects.

The second product, code-named Knights Crest, integrates Intel Xeon processors with Nervana Systems technology. And, the third, is the next generation of processors Intel Xeon Phi (with name of code Knights Mill), which will provide up to four times more performance than the previous generation for deep learning.

Fused/virtual reality

Current experiences are based on the interaction of the user with a screen, but in the future, users can enjoy a total immersion in the images, sound and tactile experiences.

The following border of computing will allow people create, solve, develop and play in a world where the barriers between physical and virtual environments will be increasingly less detectable. Virtual technologies have a huge potential for the future, and the sectors are just beginning to discover what is possible in this area.

In 2016, Intel released the Alloy Project, a solution all-in-one for virtual reality. In November it announced the acquisition of Voke, company that offers immersive sports experiences to athletes, fans and producers of content. And in December it announced, along with Microsoft, Windows Holographic technology specifications.

This year, Intel expected that virtual reality experiences go beyond the initial phases in sectors such as health, education and travel, integrating environments completely immersive.

Merged reality, a new way to enjoy physical and virtual interactions and environments, will have a prominent role, with five technological advances (6 degrees of mobility, integrated follow-up, most natural handling offline technologies and) contained digitized real-world) and is expected to be available in the market this year.
