Intel CEO: Fix on the way for serious flaws

  • Above Intel's latest big data stats at CES

The company's German partner, Volocopter, flew its 18-rotor air taxi for the first time on US soil Monday night at Intel CEO Brian Krzanich's CES 2018 keynote event in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Securities law firms announced Monday that they were pursuing investigations of a flaw affecting Intel chips as a prelude to class-action litigation against the company.

"This has been a major research effort by Intel and today we have a fully functioning neuromorphic research chip", Krzanich said. The company has described the issue as an industry-wide problem and said it is working with other technology companies to address the issue.

Krzanich assured the audience that Intel was committed to addressing the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities. "Our primary discussion has been to keep customer data safe".

Heyman | Mets sign Jay Bruce to 3-year deal
The trade, however, was ultimately nixed by a higher up in the NY organization - likely over concerns regarding Kipnis' contract. Back in December 20, ESPN reported that they Giants wanted to sign Bruce but were not willing to go beyond a three-year deal.

January 9 was originally meant to be the day that the Meltdown and Spectre CPU flaws were to be publicly disclosed, but media speculation led to a January 3 disclosure of the critical flaws.

Krzanich's comments at CES - the technology trade show formerly known as the Consumer Electronics Show - gave him the opportunity to address attendees from across the global tech industry. The sports and movie applications involve several high-definition cameras that not shoot an event as it happens and translate it into "voxels", or a three-dimensional representation that can be viewed from several angles.

He was joined on stage by an autonomous vehicle carrying Amnon Shashua, the chief executive office of Mobileye, Intel's driverless technology unit. While the earlier models were all about storing this data as a static commodity, now the data will move all around us at unimaginable speeds, Krzanich said.

Intel will branch out soon. A separate initiative, known as Intel Studios, used 100 cameras mounted in a giant circle to shoot a scene from all angles simultaneously, creating a voxel-based representation of the shot. "This is one thing I really like about Intel entering the space", he says. It's Intel's first foray into the AI chip arena. They are less flexible and powerful than the best general-purpose chips, but being specialized to their task makes them very energy efficient, and thus ideal for mobile devices, vehicles, and industrial equipment.

WhatsApp beta now lets users switch between voice calls and video calls
Once added, the feature will save users' time by allowing them to seamlessly switching between video and voice calls. It's hardly a revolutionary change but it helps make the whole WhatsApp calling experience a little more seamless.

The other Intel reveal was a Neuromorphic chip codenamed Loihi.

During the Intel keynote, Krzanich said Intel's labs and researchers are "committed" to advancing quantum computing, with a Netherlands-based lab specifically testing and building quantum computing systems.

While there is no timeline details on the quantum chip - codenamed Tangle Lake - Krzanich was clear that this nascent technology could one day help solve the biggest problems humanity faces, taking minutes to solve problems that our current supercomputers take months or years to calculate, including drug development and climate modelling.

It has also sued five largest fossil fuel companies for their major contribution to the climate change and its impact on the City. Later on Twitter, de Blasio added, "We are fighting for our lives and we will not wait for anyone else to do it for us".
