Intel CEO addresses Meltdown, announces quantum developments

Intel To Release Hardware Update By January End. Is It The Final Solutio

Intel To Make Up For Its Flaw Will Update Processors By January End

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich used the opening of his Consumer Electronics Show keynote in Las Vegas on January 8 to publicly comment on the recently disclosed Meltdown and Spectre security vulnerabilities that impact the majority of the world's CPUs. Those maps would then be used by autonomous vehicles for navigation.

Krzanich thanked technology firms for working with Intel to provide fixes, adding that the performance hit expected when software fixes are applied will vary from case to case.

Having done his bit on the negative news, Krzanich steered his speech towards Intel's developments in the field of quantum computing.

Intel Corporation is making fast progress scaling superconducting quantum computing test chips to higher qubit counts - from 7, to 17 and now 49 qubits (left to right).

In the first half of 2018, Intel plans to partner with leading universities and research organizations and apply Loihi to more complex problems. "Data is going to redefine how we experience life - in our work, in our homes..."

To date, he said, Intel has seen no sign that anyone has stolen data by exploiting the two vulnerabilities, known as Meltdown and Spectre.

Mueller's team is also investigating whether the president tried to obstruct justice in the Russian Federation probe. While the two world leaders made statements that discussed national and world security, and U.S.

Speaking at the unveiling Brian Krzanich, Intel Chief Executive said, "We not only find data everywhere today, but it will be the creative force behind the innovations of the future".

As part of this, Intel announced an "exploratory partnership" with Paramount Pictures, with the latter company's chair Jim Gianopulos saying that such technology is "the key to our future" in the creation of a new form of entertainment.

But before he could jump into his almost two-hour speech about the futuristic world where one could hail helicopters or watch entertainment from the point of view of a favorite actor or athlete, Krzanich had to address the month's big tech news about his chips' security vulnerability.

Whether or not you think flying cars will become a legitimate mode of transport, everyone is in love with the idea. The craft uses Intel Flight Control Technology based on the intelligence found in the Intel Falcon 8+ drone used for inspection, surveying and mapping. The announcement comes from an internal memo obtained by The Oregonian, with changes already in play ahead of the CEO's CES 2018 keynote address. He announced the debut of Intel Studios, a new studio dedicated to the production of large-scale, volumetric content - using Intel True View technology - that will create new forms of visual storytelling with and without VR. Thirty events will be viewable from different angles both live and on demand, the company said, and it would be expanding the initiative to the National Football League with cameras installed inside players' helmets.

While the Winter Olympics in South Korea will be the first to get a full VR broadcast powered by this technology.

At the start of the company's opening keynote for the event, Intel's CEO Brian Krzanich has stated that it will be releasing updates to cover processors and products that Intel has introduced for the past five years.
