NEWS HIGHLIGHTS

  • Intel CTO Justin Rattner named rich, context-driven user experience with technology as the future of computing.
  • Rattner discussed a new generation of devices that are expected to shape the next era of personal technology.
  • While developing new ways of sensing, gathering and sharing contextual data, Intel is even more focused on ensuring privacy and security.

 

 

INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM, San Francisco, Sept. 15, 2010 – The future of computing lies in rich, context-driven user experiences, Intel Vice President, Director of Intel Labs and Intel Chief Technology Officer and Senior Fellow Justin Rattner told his keynote audience today at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco.

 

Rattner described how context awareness is poised to fundamentally change the nature of how we interact with and relate to information devices and the services they provide. With computing devices having increased processing power, improved connectivity and innovative sensing capabilities, Intel researchers are focused on delivering new “context-aware” user experiences. “Context-aware” devices will anticipate your needs, advise you, and guide you through your day in a manner more akin to a personal assistant than a traditional computer.   “Context aware” computing, via a combination of hard and soft sensors, will open up new opportunities for developers to create the next generation of products on Intel platforms.

 

Context: The Foundation for Future Experience-Driven Design
Rattner said “context aware” computing is fundamentally different than the simple kinds of sensor-based applications we see today.

 

“My GPS coordinates and compass heading don’t tell my smartphone all that much about me,” said Rattner. “Imagine a device that uses a variety of sensory modalities to determine what you are doing at an instant, from being asleep in your bed to being out for a run with a friend. By combing hard sensor information such as where you are and the conditions around you combined with soft sensors such as your calendar, your social network and past preferences, future devices will constantly learn about who you are, how you live, work and play. As your devices learn about your life, they can begin to anticipate your needs. Imagine your PC advising you leave the house 10 minutes early for your next appointment due to a traffic tie-up on your way to work. Consider a “context aware” remote control that instantly determines who is holding it and automatically selects the Smart TV preferences for that person. All this may sound like science fiction, but this is the promise of “context-aware” computing and we can already demonstrate much of it in the lab.”

 

To provide an example, Rattner was joined onstage by Tim Jarrell, vice president and publisher of Fodor’s Travel. Jarrell showed Fodor’s experimental Personal Vacation Assistant running on a mobile Internet device and designed in conjunction with Intel. The PVA uses a variety of context sources such as personal travel preferences, previous activities, current location and calendar information to provide real-time travel recommendations to vacationers. The PVA can even generate, at the user’s request, a travel blog with annotated photos and videos visited during the trip.

 

Rattner also showed the Socially ENabled Services (SENS) research project that provides the ability to sense and understand your real-time activities and, if you choose to do so, share that knowledge “live and direct” to networked friends and family through animated avatars on whatever screen, be it PC, smartphone, or TV, is handy.

 

“While we’re developing all of these new ways of sensing, gathering and sharing contextual data, we are even more focused on ensuring privacy and security as billions of devices get connected and become much smarter.” Rattner said. “Our vision is to enable devices to generate and use contextual information for a greatly enhanced user experience while ensuring the safety and privacy of an individual’s personal information. Underlying this new level of security are several forthcoming Intel hardware-enabled techniques that dramatically improve the ability of all computing devices to defend against possible attacks.”

 

Making context work
Designing compelling user experiences requires deep knowledge and understanding of consumer behavior and preferences. Genevieve Bell, Intel Fellow and head of Interaction & Experience Research at Intel Labs, joined Rattner onstage to talk about the fundamentals of experience design.

 

“Our goal is to develop experiences that people love,” Bell said. “Randomly applying context can easily result in a negative experience. The key to making context work is people-centered design, and for us, that begins with working out what people love.”

 

At the end of his keynote, Rattner presented the ultimate example of sensing – a human brain-computer interface. Through the Human Brain project, Intel’s aim is to enable people to one day use their thoughts to directly interact with computers and mobile devices. In a joint project with Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh, Intel Labs is investigating what can be inferred about a person's cognitive state from their pattern of neural activity.

Developers Can Reach Millions of Consumers and Generate Revenue through Intel AppUp center

 

 

SAN JOSE, Calif. — September 14, 2010 — Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq: ADBE) and Intel Corporation (Nasdaq: INTC) today announced plans to enable developers to distribute and monetize Adobe® AIR® applications and games via Intel® AppUpSM center storefronts, the first non-Adobe app store supported by Melrose. Using Adobe’s new application distribution platform beta, code-named “Melrose,” developers and publishers can sell and distribute AIR applications to potentially millions of users while monitoring sales and downloads. Available today, the beta of Melrose provides a portal for developers and publishers to distribute their applications through multiple distribution channels.

 

Better service to individual consumers with Melrose and AppUp

  • The Intel AppUp center was released as a public beta in January 2010. AppUp currently targets netbooks and consumer laptops, with plans to extend AppUp support to additional devices. The combination of Melrose and AppUp means developers can better serve individual consumers across multiple devices. With Melrose, developers can incorporate licensing capabilities directly into their applications through a free software development kit (SDK). This SDK enables payment as well as usage data to help developers measure their success. Using Melrose, developers can publish applications and choose target stores, set pricing and view store analytics. More information about Adobe’s Melrose licensing SDK and portal can be found on Adobe Labs. Melrose is expected to ship in Q4 2010.

 

Building and managing relationships with consumers and AppUp center stores with IADP

  • The Intel AppUp Developer Program (IADP) was launched at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in 2009 and gives developers and ISVs the tools, SDKs, and community they need to deliver great applications via AppUp stores directly to consumers.  With IADP, Intel is focusing on developers, and not just their applications, helping developers and publishers build and manage relationships with consumers and AppUp center stores.

 

Using an integrated and ubiquitous platform for creating applications, content, and video that run across devices

  • Adobe AIR enables developers to use HTML, JavaScript, Adobe Flash® Platform tools and ActionScript® to build web applications that run as standalone client applications without the constraints of a browser. AIR is a key component of the Adobe Flash Platform, the leading design and development platform for creating expressive applications, content, and video that run consistently across operating systems and devices and reach more than 98 percent of Internet-enabled desktops and a growing number of devices. For more information about the Adobe Flash Platform visit www.adobe.com/flashplatform

Otellini said people “will choose the device that provides the best experience for any given intended use and that no one device will win.”

 

Intel is positioning itself to advance – and benefit from – this transformation in the computing marketplace. The company is extending its chip design, manufacturing techniques and software expertise to offer more complete hardware and software platforms and related services that deliver energy-efficient performance, security and Internet connectivity across a large, dynamic range of devices. The company is developing products that span high performance PCs and servers to a broad range of other “smart” devices that currently or soon will connect to the Internet.

 

“Computing has become an indispensible part of our daily lives,” Otellini said in a tone-setting speech to open the company’s semi-annual Intel Developer Forum. “Our vision is to create a continuum of personal computing experiences that provides consistency and interoperability across all Internet-connected devices in the home, car, office or in your pocket.

 

“At the heart of this continuum will sit Intel technology that will make devices smarter, more powerful and more useful,” he added. “We’re changing how we develop and deliver solutions so we can deliver on this vision.”

 

Intel has made limited investments beyond the PC in recent years. However, it has made nearly $10 billion in acquisitions over the last year – starting with Wind River – to help the company extend its capabilities. Otellini said Intel’s recently announced, planned acquisitions of Infineon’s* Wireless Solutions Business and McAfee Inc.* will enhance the company’s ability to deliver products that offer a choice of wireless connections, and more effectively counter the increasingly sophisticated security attacks happening on a broad range of Internet-connected devices. The planned purchase of Texas Instruments’* cable modem business will add to Intel’s ability to deliver Internet services to consumer electronics devices.

 

Intel’s CEO also described how the benefits of Moore’s Law and Intel’s leading-edge transistor technology are being applied to different computing segments for increasingly capable and energy-efficient processors. The company’s unique High-k metal gate transistor technology enables 10 times less power leakage from generation to generation while continuing to improve performance.

 

“There’s tremendous innovation happening for PCs today,” Otellini said, citing several examples including the upcoming 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ processor family, Intel® Wireless Display technology, and manageability technology for business PCs. “I’m excited about Intel’s prospects for bringing its rich history of computing expertise to other markets.”

 

The Intel® Core™ processor, Intel® Atom™ processor and Intel software tools are playing a role transforming data centers, the Internet “cloud” and other areas that are being transformed by the proliferation of smarter, Internet-connected devices. Otellini highlighted Intel’s progress in these areas. He also demonstrated several technologies that showed Intel’s leading computing architecture delivering a consistent and interoperable Internet experience across multiple devices.

 

“We’re excited by how the TV industry is making a transition from having just a few Internet-based services to a truly integrated Internet experience,” Otellini said. “We call this new category smart TV, and products are beginning to take off around the world.”

 

Otellini showed two smart TV-enabling products powered by the Intel® Atom™ processor CE4100 and Google* TV that will come out this Fall. The Sony Internet TV and the Logitech Revue* add-in box seamlessly combine access to the Internet with the TV viewing experience through the combination of Intel processors and the Google TV Android* platform. D-Link*, Telecom Italia* and several other companies are also expected to launch Intel® Atom™ processor CE4100-based devices soon.

 

Intel’s success in the embedded processor area is continuing with design wins for Intel Core and Intel Atom processors in more than 30 market segments that include cars, home energy management and digital signage. There currently are more than 3,800 embedded customer engagements for the Intel® Atom™ processor.
