Intel released the Intel Innovation Barometer today that reveals a shift in technology optimism. Unlike their reputation as digital natives, the majority of millennials agree technology makes people less human and society relies on it too much. However, technology enhances their personal relationships and improves important aspects of society. Globally, women over the age of 45 are more likely than younger women to advocate for technology; they think technology contributes to a country’s well-being and say that we don’t use technology enough.

Intel Research Reveals Changing Tech Advocates and Attitudes: Millennials are Tough on Technology, Women Carry the Tech Torch and Digital Affluents Share Wealth of Data

 

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS

  • Fifty-nine percent of millennials say people are over-reliant on technology, believe it makes users less human and desire technology that is more personal and knows their habits. In exchange, millennials are willing to share their digital information with others.
  • Globally, women over the age of 45 are more likely than younger women to advocate for technology, say people don't use it enough and believe it contributes to a country's well-being.
  • Higher-income individuals worldwide are more likely to share their information anonymously and allow monitoring of their work habits.

 

 

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 17, 2013 – A new study commissioned by Intel Corporation and conducted by Penn Schoen Berland examining global attitudes toward technology innovation challenges existing perceptions on technology champions and hotspots. The research reveals millennials (ages 18 to 24) are the least enthusiastic about technology today yet are optimistic for future technology that delivers a more personalized experience, while women in emerging markets are the most optimistic about innovations in technology.

 

Millennial Malaise: Young Adults Want More Personal Put in Computing
The "Intel Innovation Barometer" reveals millennials globally show a stark contrast to their reputation as digital natives who can't get enough technology in their lives. A majority of millennials agree that technology makes people less human and that society relies on technology too much.

 

However, millennials also believe technology enhances their personal relationships (69 percent) and have great hope that innovations will positively impact education (57 percent), transportation (52 percent) and healthcare (49 percent). This generation is also slightly more willing than their oldest cohorts to anonymously share birth dates, GPS records and online shopping history if it helps to improve experiences.

 

"At first glance it seems millennials are rejecting technology, but I suspect the reality is more complicated and interesting," said Dr. Genevieve Bell, anthropologist and director of Interaction and Experience Research at Intel Labs. "A different way to read this might be that millennials want technology to do more for them, and we have work to do to make it much more personal and less burdensome."

 

Millennials want future technology to make life better, more simple and fun. Eighty-six percent believe technology innovation makes life simpler, and more than one-third think technology should know them by learning about their behavior and preferences. They want experiences that help them stay in the moment and be their best selves.

 

Women Carry the Tech Torch
The survey revealed that older women and those living in emerging markets are enthusiastic about the role of technology in their lives. Globally, women over 45 years of age are slightly more likely than younger women to say that people don't use enough technology. They also are more likely to say that technology makes people more human, helping to deepen their relationships.

 

These female tech fans are even more pronounced in emerging markets such as China, where more than 7 out of 10 women over the age of 45 believe people don't use technology enough. Women in emerging markets across ages believe innovations will drive better education (66 percent), transportation (58 percent), work (57 percent) and healthcare (56 percent). Women in emerging markets would be willing to embrace technologies others may consider to be too personal to improve their experiences: software that watches their work habits (86 percent), students' study habits (88 percent) and even smart toilets that monitor their health (77 percent).

 

"Women historically have become avid users of technology when that technology solves a problem, helps us organize our lives and that of our families as well as aids us in saving time and time shifting," added Bell. "I have to wonder whether this data is showing that women are optimistic because they see technology innovation that is starting to deliver on the promise of better fitting into the rhythms of our days, helping with our specific concerns and needs, and creating new compelling experiences that women and men alike will find valuable."

 

Digital Affluence and Data Sharing
The research revealed that individuals with high incomes are the most willing to anonymously share personal data, such as results of lab tests and travel information. They are also the most likely to own technology devices and engage with technology on a regular basis.

 

However, the research revealed that it is possible to incentivize sharing by showing the specific benefits. For example, when asked if they would share personal information to lower costs of medications, the number of low-income consumers previously unwilling to share their data dramatically increases from 66 to 80 percent.

 

While showing personal benefits is the most compelling way to close the gap between those who will share and those who won't, even showing societal benefits such as improved health treatments or lower costs of commuting helps to make the case for sharing.

 

"The need for us to show personal meaning and relevance has never been more important for the technology industry," Bell said. "Listening to what people really want and creating technologies that adapt to a wide variety of personal experiences is the future of technology."

 

Intel Innovation Barometer: Key Findings

 

Millennials Get Tough on Today's Tech

  • Fifty-nine percent of millennials feel society relies on technology too much and makes people less human (61 percent).
  • More than one-third (36 percent) think technology should learn about their behavior and preferences when they use it.
  • Positive on the future of technology in their countries, more than 70 percent of millennials will favor smart public parking and traffic control for emergency vehicles, applications that watch their work habits and smart pills that monitor their health.

 

Women Carry the Torch for Tech

  • Globally, women older than 45 years of age are more likely than younger women to say that people don't use enough technology, and this sentiment is particularly strong in emerging markets. In Brazil, 42 percent of women over 45 years of age say that people don't use technology enough compared with just 27 percent of those less than 45 years of age.
  • Older women are more likely to say that technology makes people more human. In China 79 percent of women over 45 years of age say technology makes users more human versus 64 percent of younger women.
  • Women in emerging markets believe technology will drive better education (66 percent), transportation (58 percent), work (57 percent) and healthcare (56 percent).

 

Digital Affluence and Data Sharing

  • Eighty-one percent of high-income individuals would share anonymous personal information, such as lab tests and health monitoring, in order to support research, compared with 71 percent of individuals with mid-level incomes and 66 percent of those with lower incomes.
  • When asked if they would share personal data in exchange for lower costs of medications, the percentage of lower income individuals who agree jumps to 80 percent.
  • Individuals with higher incomes are more willing to let an application learn about their work habits to help make them more efficient (77 percent of individuals with high incomes versus 63 percent of those with low incomes).

 

Survey Methodology

This survey was conducted online by Penn Schoen Berland on behalf of Intel in Brazil, China, France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan and the United States from July 28 to Aug. 15, 2013. It was conducted among a representative sample of 12,000 adults ages 18 and older with a margin of error of plus or minus 0.89 percentage points.

Risk Factors

The above statements and any others in this document that refer to plans and expectations for the fourth quarter, the year and the future are forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Words such as "anticipates," "expects," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "estimates," "may," "will," "should" and their variations identify forward-looking statements. Statements that refer to or are based on projections, uncertain events or assumptions also identify forward-looking statements. Many factors could affect Intel's actual results, and variances from Intel's current expectations regarding such factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in these forward-looking statements. Intel presently considers the following to be the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the company's expectations.

  • Demand could be different from Intel's expectations due to factors including changes in business and economic conditions; customer acceptance of Intel's and competitors' products; supply constraints and other disruptions affecting customers; changes in customer order patterns including order cancellations; and changes in the level of inventory at customers. Uncertainty in global economic and financial conditions poses a risk that consumers and businesses may defer purchases in response to negative financial events, which could negatively affect product demand and other related matters.
  • Intel's results, including revenue, gross margin, expenses and interest and other, would likely be adversely affected  in the event of widespread financial and business disruption on account of a default by the U.S. on U.S. government obligations and/or a prolonged failure to maintain significant U.S. government operations.
  • Intel operates in intensely competitive industries that are characterized by a high percentage of costs that are fixed or difficult to reduce in the short term and product demand that is highly variable and difficult to forecast. Revenue and the gross margin percentage are affected by the timing of Intel product introductions and the demand for and market acceptance of Intel's products; actions taken by Intel's competitors, including product offerings and introductions, marketing programs and pricing pressures and Intel's response to such actions; and Intel's ability to respond quickly to technological developments and to incorporate new features into its products.
  • The gross margin percentage could vary significantly from expectations based on capacity utilization; variations in inventory valuation, including variations related to the timing of qualifying products for sale; changes in revenue levels; segment product mix; the timing and execution of the manufacturing ramp and associated costs; start-up costs; excess or obsolete inventory; changes in unit costs; defects or disruptions in the supply of materials or resources; product manufacturing quality/yields; and impairments of long-lived assets, including manufacturing, assembly/test and intangible assets.
  • The tax rate expectation is based on current tax law and current expected income. The tax rate may be affected by the jurisdictions in which profits are determined to be earned and taxed; changes in the estimates of credits, benefits and deductions; the resolution of issues arising from tax audits with various tax authorities, including payment of interest and penalties; and the ability to realize deferred tax assets.
  • Gains or losses from equity securities and interest and other could vary from expectations depending on gains or losses on the sale, exchange, change in the fair value or impairments of debt and equity investments; interest rates; cash balances; and changes in fair value of derivative instruments.
  • Intel's results could be affected by adverse economic, social, political and physical/infrastructure conditions in countries where Intel, its customers or its suppliers operate, including military conflict and other security risks, natural disasters, infrastructure disruptions, health concerns and fluctuations in currency exchange rates.
  • Expenses, particularly certain marketing and compensation expenses, as well as restructuring and asset impairment charges, vary depending on the level of demand for Intel's products and the level of revenue and profits.
  • Intel's results could be affected by the timing of closing of acquisitions and divestitures.
  • Intel's results could be affected by adverse effects associated with product defects and errata (deviations from published specifications), and by litigation or regulatory matters involving intellectual property, stockholder, consumer, antitrust, disclosure and other issues, such as the litigation and regulatory matters described in Intel's SEC reports. An unfavorable ruling could include monetary damages or an injunction prohibiting Intel from manufacturing or selling one or more products, precluding particular business practices, impacting Intel's ability to design its products, or requiring other remedies such as compulsory licensing of intellectual property.

 

A detailed discussion of these and other factors that could affect Intel's results is included in Intel's SEC filings, including the company's most recent reports on Form 10-Q and Form 10-K.

BERKELEY, CALIF., Oct. 9, 2013 – Mobile Monitoring Station, a team of student entrepreneurs from Chile, won the 9th annual Intel Global Challenge at UC Berkeley, a global business plan competition that encourages student entrepreneurs to tackle some of the world's most pressing issues through computing technology. The competition provides a unique entrepreneurship experience by giving teams access to top venture capitalists and investors in Silicon Valley.

 

Mobile Monitoring Station, comprised of team members from engineering research and development company SoluNova, Chilean mining company Codelco and the University of Chile, created a set of portable sensors that collects industrial workers' biomedical data, such as heart rate, in real time. The sensors, which are applied directly to the workers' clothes, transmit valuable biomedical information to devices such as smartphones, which then push the data to the cloud. The solution will be offered as a service, supplying industrial sites with the hardware and software for a monthly fee per worker. The winning team, driven by the lack of existing data on industrial workers' exposure to health risks, expects the sensors to result in a considerable drop in health dangers in this industry.

 

"At Intel, we know that innovation is critical to growth for individuals, businesses and economies," said Staci Palmer, Intel's director of Global Strategic Initiatives and Marketing in the Corporate Affairs Group. "Through the Intel Global Challenge at UC Berkeley, students around the world gain lifelong entrepreneurship and innovation skills they can apply throughout their careers, in fields ranging from healthcare to transportation."

 

The Intel Foundation awarded $100,000 total in cash prizes, including a $50,000 grand prize and three $10,000 awards for teams taking first place in the following categories: Internet, mobile and software computing; computing for social innovation; and hardware and computing. In addition, four $5,000 special awards were presented.

 

Innovations from the three first-prize winners included industries ranging from technology to healthcare. Gameleon of Bulgaria developed a cloud-based platform that allows anyone to create, publish, play and monetize Web games with only a browser, regardless of programming skills or experience. Karmashop of Mexico created a crowd-funding platform that allows users to customize how they receive donations and, in return, gives donors "Karma Points." For example, through a Karmashop campaign raising money for community members affected by the recent floods in Mexico, donors have the option to contribute items including drinking water, first aid and shelter. Tensive of Italy developed implantable biomaterials for the reconstruction of large bone and tissue defects, caused by osteoporosis, trauma or tumor removal. The patented technology replicates the patient's blood vessels and accelerates the natural regeneration of bone and tissue.

 

The Intel Global Challenge, held at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley, drew 28 teams from more than 20 countries and regions. These finalist teams were selected from more than 18,000 entries from more than 60 countries and regions around the world. Founded in 2005, the Intel Global Challenge at UC Berkeley is a joint project of Intel and the UC Berkeley Lester Center for Entrepreneurship. The competition is designed to motivate young entrepreneurs to develop innovative technologies that solve real-world challenges, build viable business models and move that technology out of university labs and into the market.

 

Over the past decade alone, Intel has invested more than $1 billion, and its employees have donated close to 3 million hours toward improving education in more than 60 countries.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 8, 2013 – Intel Corporation today announced plans to accelerate the development and deployment of the Internet of Things (IoT) by enabling intelligent devices, end-to-end analytics and connecting legacy devices to the cloud to drive business transformation.

 

In support of this effort, the company unveiled several products including the Intel® Atom™ processor E3800 product family (formerly codenamed "Bay Trail-I"), a new family of Intel-based intelligent gateway solutions featuring integrated software from McAfee and Wind River, and new features for the Intel® Quark SoC X1000.

 

"The Internet of Things consists of a wide range of Internet-connected devices, from a simple pedometer to a complex CT scanner," said Ton Steenman, vice president and general manager of Intel's Intelligent Systems Group. "The true value in the Internet of Things is realized when these intelligent devices communicate and share data with each other and the cloud, uncovering information and actionable insight that can transform business. As a leader in computing solutions from the device to the datacenter, Intel is focused on driving intelligence in new devices and gateways to help connect the billions of existing devices."

 

According to a recent McKinsey Global Institute* report, the number of connected machines has grown by 300 percent over the past five years, due largely to the transformational power of IoT technologies and their ability to drive greater efficiency in the estimated $36 trillion spend in operating costs in affected industries1. As more devices become connected every day, companies face increased fragmentation, interoperability and security challenges. To address this, Intel is delivering integrated, scalable hardware and software solutions specifically designed to meet diverse market needs from devices to the cloud.

 

A Scalable Roadmap for Intelligent Devices
An end-to-end strategy requires making devices more intelligent and secure to reliably filter and manage data locally. Intel offers a scalable roadmap of products to power devices at the edge of the network, from the energy-efficient Intel Quark SoC to the high-performance Intel® Xeon® processors.

 

The addition of the low-power, small-core Intel Quark SoC X1000 will extend the company's reach into new and rapidly growing IoT markets. The new product family features error-correcting code (ECC), industrial temperature range and integrated security. ECC delivers a high level of data integrity, reliability and system uptime for equipment required to run at all times, while industrial temperature range helps meet the requirements for industrial control and automation applications. The Quark processor core is a 32-bit, single core, single-thread, Intel® Pentium® instruction set architecture (ISA) compatible CPU operating at speeds up to 400MHz.

 

The new Intel Atom processor E3800 product family features improved media and graphics performance, ECC, industrial temperature range, integrated security and integrated image signal processing. These features help reduce time-to-market, accelerate data intensive applications and reduce energy consumption. This product family is ideally suited for digital signage applications such as interactive kiosks, intelligent vending, ATMs and point-of-sale terminals as well as portable medical devices and in-vehicle infotainment systems.

 

Connecting the Old and New with Intelligent Gateways
With more than 85 percent of today's devices based on existing legacy systems,2 a significant need exists for an interim step to address interoperability instead of replacing all existing infrastructure. Intel is working with McAfee and Wind River to address this challenge with a new family of intelligent gateway solutions that connect legacy systems and provide common interfaces and seamless communication between devices and the cloud. Targeting industrial, energy and transportation markets, this system of systems helps ensure that the data generated by devices and existing infrastructure can be shared securely between the cloud and intelligent devices for analysis.

 

The new family of intelligent gateway solutions from Intel provides integrated and pre-validated hardware and software, including McAfee Embedded Control and the Wind River® Intelligent Device Platform, that help develop, prototype and deploy application services faster so companies can focus on creating new, value-added services. With these solutions, users can securely aggregate, filter and share data from the edge to the cloud in areas such as monitoring high-value industrial assets, facilitating manufacturing automation, energy grid automation, and commercial fleet monitoring.

 

For example, Intel is working with Westfalen Weser Energie*, a large power and gas distribution grid operator, to develop and deploy gateways in its secondary energy substations. As more renewables come online, managing energy flows becomes more complicated and Westfalen Weser Energie is using intelligent gateways to interface with its legacy devices and acquire, analyze and act on data in real-time.

 

The first set of intelligent gateway solutions will feature versions based on the Intel Quark SoC X1000 and Intel Atom processor E3800 product family and will be available in the first quarter of 2014.

 

Unlocking Intelligence in Data from Device to the Datacenter

Introduces First Intel-Based Arduino-Compatible Development Board; Announces Donation to 1,000 Universities Worldwide

 

MAKER FAIRE ROME, Oct. 3, 2013 – Intel Corporation CEO Brian Krzanich today announced a collaboration agreement with Arduino LLC, the leading open-source hardware platform in the maker and education community. Krzanich also unveiled the Intel® Galileo board, the first product in a new family of Arduino-compatible development boards featuring Intel® architecture.

 

Arduino development kits and software programming interface make it easier for artists, designers and other do-it-yourself enthusiasts – who often don't have technical backgrounds – to create interactive objects or environments.

 

Building on the Galileo development board, Intel and the Arduino community will work closely together on future products that bring the performance, scalability and possibilities of Intel technology to this growing community of makers.

 

Also as part of this effort, Krzanich announced a large-scale donation of 50,000 Intel® Galileo boards to 1,000 universities worldwide over the next 18 months.

 

"Through our ongoing efforts in education, we know that hands-on learning inspires interest in science, technology, engineering and math," said Krzanich. "I've been a 'maker' for many years and am passionate about the exciting possibilities of technology and what can be created with it. We look forward to a productive collaboration with Arduino and to providing this community with some incredible Intel products that will help push the boundaries of our imaginations."

 

Today, Intel is working with 17 universities across six continents to develop curriculum based on the new Intel Galileo board. The goal of the education effort is to put the power of Intel technology into the hands of as many educators and students as possible. The company expects to name additional universities in the coming months.

 

"We're thrilled to be working with Intel and to having the performance of Intel technology for the first time in our development boards," said Massimo Banzi, founder of the Arduino community. "I look forward to our collaboration and believe that our work together will produce some fantastic development vehicles that help foster some very exciting innovations."

 

"The agreement signed between Intel and Sapienza University of Rome will give Intel access to the research excellence of Europe's largest university and they offer us the ability of a dedicated knowledge transfer structure gained from working alongside the technology industry," said Stephen Trueman, Director, Sapienza Innovation Center.

 

Intel® Galileo Development Board: What Will You Make?
Intel Galileo is the first in a line of Arduino-compatible development boards based on Intel architecture and is designed for the maker and education communities. The platform is easy to use for new designers and for those looking to take designs to the next level.

 

Intel Galileo combines the performance of Intel technology and the ease of the Arduino software development environment. The development board runs an open source Linux operating system with the Arduino software libraries, enabling scalability and re-use of existing software, called "sketches". Intel Galileo can be programmed through Mac OS*, Microsoft Windows* and Linux host operating software. The board is also designed to be hardware and software compatible with the Arduino shield ecosystem.

 

Intel Galileo features the Intel® Quark SoC X1000, the first product from the Intel® Quark technology family of low-power, small-core products. Intel® Quark technology will extend Intel architecture into rapidly growing areas – from the Internet of Things to wearable computing in the future. Designed in Ireland, the Quark SoC X1000 is a 32-bit, single core, single-thread, Pentium® instruction set architecture (ISA)-compatible CPU, operating at speeds up to 400MHz.

 

Helping to expand native usage and capabilities beyond the Arduino shield ecosystem, the Intel development board comes standard with several computing industry standard I/O interfaces, including ACPI, PCI Express*, 10/100Mb Ethernet, SD, USB 2.0 device and EHCI/OHCI USB host ports, high-speed UART, RS-232 serial port, programmable 8MB NOR flash, and a JTAG port for easy debug. Intel Galileo also brings together the benefits of the Arduino IDE with the broad software development and advanced capabilities of a full, unmodified Linux* software stack into one platform, supported by a common open source tool chain.

 

Overall, the Intel Galileo development board is a great tool for quickly prototyping simple interactive designs such as LED light displays that respond to social media, or for tackling more complex projects from automating home appliances to building life-size robots controlled by a smartphone.

 

Intel® Galileo will be available by the end of November. Visit http://maker.intel.com and www.intel.com/support/go/galileo for information on where to buy and to learn more about Intel® Galileo.
