Technology and Innovation Making a Better Tomorrow at Research@Intel Event



  • Today marks the 11th annual Research@Intel event, showcasing 20 research projects from around the world, each exploring technologies to enrich lives with smarter cities, homes and offices, and with smarter ways to shop, communicate and drive.
  • Intel Labs is developing some of the world's most promising technological advancements, both on its own and in conjunction with leading academic institutions worldwide.
  • Intel Labs helps pave the way for future innovations through technologies that support life enrichment, easier access to big data, and a more connected computing experience.



SAN FRANCISCO, June 25, 2013 – Car tail lights saving lives, immersive displays allowing photos to tell their own story, personalized shopping experiences. These are just a few of the innovations presented by Intel Corporation today at its 11th annual Research@Intel event, a showcase of the most innovative new research spawned from Intel's internal efforts and external collaborations. Justin Rattner, Intel's chief technology officer, kicked off today's event by highlighting some of the 20 groundbreaking research projects on exhibition today.


Supplementing its own robust and diverse research efforts, Intel Labs two years ago deployed a unique model of direct collaboration with the world's leading academic researchers, creating a global network of seven Intel Science and Technology Centers (ISTCs) and six Intel Collaborative Research Institutes (ICRIs). Each center has built its own vibrant community of researchers to speed advances in embedded, cloud, social and secure computing, among other fields. Today's event showcases a sample of these research advances – and many from Intel's own labs – across these and many other sectors, including visual and context-aware computing as well as significant progress in fields such as big data.


"The majority of our research is conducted by Intel's own researchers but we are delighted by the quality and quantity of research coming out of the ISTCs and ICRIs," said Rattner. "Importantly, the deeply collaborative structure of these engagements is based on an open IP model benefiting not just Intel and researchers, but the high technology industry and human society at large."


Research@Intel Demo Showcase

Demos at the Research@Intel event are housed in four different zones. These zones include:


Enriching Lives: Developing computing experiences that simplify, enhance and enrich people's lives. This research is intended to help people be understood, expressive and free. One demonstration, titled "Be Meaningful," using "Shelf Edge Technology (SET)," can help detect a person's presence in a store and create a more meaningful, personalized shopping experience. If a car needs an air filter, for example, SET could use the vehicle's service records to alert the owner about the need for a specific filter when the owner enters an auto parts store. If a person has peanut allergies, SET could warn of potentially dangerous products. If a person plans to cook salmon for dinner, SET could recommend wines to best compliment the dish.

The Data Society: Unlocking the power of data for everyone. In addition to pushing the boundaries of what institutions can do with big data, Intel Labs has put an emphasis on the exploration of meaningful data exchange among individuals. Researchers are looking at ways to adapt the digital infrastructure to allow people to better capture, move and work with digital information easily and effectively. In a demonstration titled, "Vibrant Data Communities," Intel Labs researchers combine public and personal data with context-aware algorithms to identify and present the most useful information to individuals. For example, air quality sensors in a neighborhood could help steer a person clear of pollen hotspots in during allergy season.

Intelligent Everything: Innovations that transform inanimate objects by adding sensing capabilities, helping enable sustainable and smart living experiences. In one demonstration, researchers are working on easy-to-use tools to automate contextual cues with already-existing sensors so that a home behaves usefully in response to events and a family's unique needs. The demonstration shows how to easily link a Web camera and a music system to act as a home security system and to link a Web camera that receives contextual cues from a baby in a crib and an alarm by the parents' bed to act as a baby monitor.

Tech Essentials: Technology building blocks – including circuits, architecture and software – that provide a foundation for all of the areas above. For example, the "Protecting Sensor Data" demonstration uses Intel hardware and software to prevent malicious parties for accessing personal information recorded by cameras, microphones and GPS locators embedded in mobile devices.

  • New software is a simple content management system to create campaigns and promotions in minutes.
  • IT managers can use software to manage user access, receive real-time error reports and respond to end-user interactions.




SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 20, 2013 – Digital signage is increasingly being integrated into every retail device consumers touch from ATMs and point-of-sale terminals to interactive kiosks and vending machines. In order to amplify the power of marketing programs with consistent messages across multiple retail devices, Intel Corporation announced today the availability of the Intel® Retail Client Manager (Intel® RCM). Intel RCM is a simple and cost-effective content management system (CMS) for digital signage solutions.


Industry experts estimate content management systems will reach 35 million units at a cumulative annual growth rate of 40 percent by 2017. However, creating, deploying and managing an effective digital marketing campaign is currently a time-consuming and resource-intensive proposition for marketers and businesses. The result is limited and localized marketing campaigns effectively minimizing the reach and impact on a large scale.


Intel RCM provides a simple interface for marketing professionals, enabling them to create new campaigns and promotions in minutes, customize content instantly and control each screen individually in a secure and manageable environment. Intel RCM also enables marketers to create multiple zones within each digital sign and supports most formats including HD video, Adobe Flash*, static image and web content, maximizing the impact by creating a consistent, powerful impression across multiple points of a consumer's experience.


"Digital signage is rapidly changing the advertising landscape and becoming a preferred channel for marketing professionals looking to reach customers with relevant content near the point-of-sale," said Joe Jensen, general manager of Intel's Retail Solutions Division. "With the addition of Intel RCM to our portfolio of retail solutions, our customers are able to easily create and manage attention-grabbing campaigns while ensuring they are reaching the right customer, at the right time, with the right product."


When paired with Intel® Audience Impression Metrics Suite (Intel® AIM Suite), an anonymous viewer analytics technology, Intel RCM offers retailers a powerful tool for more personalized, meaningful and relevant advertising. This capability anonymously counts the number of viewers, gender and age group and dwell time for each digital sign, enabling brands to tailor advertising content based on audience demographics. Using Intel AIM suite, retailers can also gauge the effectiveness of content by measuring the length of time viewers spend looking at displays and which ads captured the attention of passersby.


Spafax Networks*, a division of WPP's tenthavenue* and a leader in the creation of branded content and advertising sales, believes solutions that address the need for simplified content management and relevant advertising are greatly needed in the industry in order to push digital signage forward as an advertising platform.


"As shoppers take more and more control over their shopping experience, retailers and brands have to provide anytime, anywhere marketing campaigns to make an impact on buying decisions," said Patrick Bonomo, chief operating officer of Spafax Networks. "Standardized and manageable digital place-based signage platforms are a key industry requirement that allows marketers to reach these tech-savvy shoppers. We are working closely with Intel to integrate the Intel Retail Client Manager into our buying platform to offer advertisers an efficient method of reaching on-the-go audiences and delivering experiences that are relevant, effective, managed and secure."


For those inside IT departments tasked with implementing and managing the tool, Intel RCM allows them to manage user access, receive real-time error reports and respond to end-user interactions. The platform is also optimized for Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors with Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) enabling remote management and diagnosis of digital signage networks. This reduces costly onsite maintenance visits, allowing centralized IT teams to power-cycle machines, repair software issues, power-down systems and install software updates and security patches.


Digital signage solutions based on Intel RCM are available through Avnet Embedded and Seneca. Subscription base price for Intel RCM is $16.95 per month, per player billed annually.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 18, 2013 – Intel Corporation recently learned of an unsolicited "mini-tender offer" made by TRC Capital Corp. to Intel stockholders to purchase up to 4 million shares of Intel common stock at $23.75 per share. TRC Capital's offer price is approximately 4.96 percent below the closing share price of Intel common stock on June 13, 2013 ($24.99), the day before the offer commenced, and the offer is for less than 1 percent of Intel's outstanding shares.


Intel does not endorse TRC Capital's mini-tender offer and recommends that Intel stockholders reject the offer and not tender their shares in response to the offer. This mini-tender offer is at a price below the market price for Intel shares (as of the date Intel received notice of the offer) and is subject to numerous conditions. TRC Capital's offer states that it may terminate or amend the offer if, among other things, the market price of Intel's stock declines, or if TRC Capital fails to obtain financing necessary to consummate the offer. Intel is not associated in any way with TRC Capital, its mini-tender offer or the offer documentation.


Intel urges investors to obtain current market quotations for their shares, consult with their broker or financial adviser, and exercise caution with respect to TRC Capital's offer. Intel stockholders who have already tendered their shares may withdraw their shares by providing notice in the manner described in the TRC Capital documents prior to the expiration of the offer, which is currently scheduled at 12:01 a.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, July 16, 2013, unless extended.


TRC Capital has made many similar mini-tender offers for shares of other companies. Because TRC Capital's mini-tender offer is for less than 5 percent of Intel's outstanding shares, it is not subject to many of the disclosure and procedural requirements of Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules that are designed to protect investors. The SEC has cautioned investors about these offers, noting that they "have been increasingly used to catch investors off guard." The SEC's tips for investors regarding mini-tender offers may be found on the SEC's Web site at http://www.sec.gov/investor/pubs/minitend.htm.


Intel encourages brokers and dealers, as well as other market participants, to review the SEC's letter regarding broker-dealer mini-tender offer dissemination and disclosures at www.sec.gov/divisions/marketreg/minitenders/sia072401.htm; and the NASD Notice to Members 99-53, issued in July 1999, regarding guidance to members forwarding mini-tender offers to their customers, which can be found at http://www.finra.org/web/groups/industry/@ip/@reg/@notice/documents/notices/p004221.pdf.


Intel requests that a copy of this press release be included with all distributions of materials relating to TRC Capital's mini-tender offer.

Get more information about Intel at ISC'13.


  • The new world's fastest supercomputer is powered by Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors and Intel® Xeon® processors, delivering twice the speed of the previous leader.
  • Intel processors power more than 80 percent of all systems on Top500 list of world's most powerful supercomputers including 98 percent of new listed systems.
  • Intel expands the portfolio of current generation coprocessors with new Intel® Xeon Phi™ 3100 and 7100 product families, providing a variety of cost and performance options.
  • Intel also disclosed the next generation of Intel® Xeon Phi™ technology, codenamed "Knights Landing," promising to extend its supercomputing leadership.



INTERNATIONAL SUPERCOMPUTING CONFERENCE (ISC'13), Leipzig, Germany, June 17, 2013 – A system built with thousands of Intel® processors and co-processors was just named the most powerful supercomputer in the world in the 41st edition of the Top500 list of supercomputers.


The system, known as "Milky Way 2," includes 48,000 Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors and 32,000 Intel® Xeon® processors and operates at a peak performance of 54.9 PFlops (54.9 quadrillion floating point operations per second) -- more than twice the performance of the top rated system from the last edition of the Top500 list in November 2012. This is the first exclusively Intel-based system to take the top spot on the list since 1997.


Intel also announced the expansion of the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors portfolio and revealed details of the second generation of Intel Xeon Phi products code named "Knights Landing." The new products and technologies will continue to radically increase the energy efficiency and performance of supercomputers worldwide.


The worldwide high performance computing (HPC) server segment is expected to grow its annual revenue by 36 percent1 from $11 billion to $15 billion over the next four years. The dramatic increase and growth of supercomputers continues to be driven by the need to quickly compute, simulate and make more informed decisions across a range of industries. Supercomputers are used to increase the accuracy of weather predictions, help to explore more efficient energy resources, develop cures for diseases, sequence the human genome and analyze big data.


"Intel is helping to blaze a path toward new innovation, discovery and competitiveness with its supercomputing vision and products," said Raj Hazra, vice president and general manager of Technical Computing Group. "There is an insatiable demand for more computing power while also achieving new levels of power efficiency. With the current and future generations of Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors, Intel Xeon processors, Intel® TrueScale fabrics and software, Intel is uniquely equipped to deliver a comprehensive solution for our customers without compromise."


Since the introduction of Intel Xeon Phi six months ago, Intel Xeon processors and Intel Xeon Phi co-processors have become a powerful combination now powering many of the world's fastest supercomputers. Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors based on the Intel® Many Integrated Core (Intel MIC) architecture address the need for higher performing yet more energy efficient and user-friendly technology.


"Milky Way 2" - the World's Fastest Supercomputer
Built for the National Supercomputing Center in Guangzhou China, the "Milky Way 2" system is powered by 32,000 of the upcoming 12-core Intel Xeon processors E5-2600 v2 based on Ivy Bridge architecture, and 48,000 Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors, with a total system power of 17.8 MW. Not only is it the fastest, but also one of the most power-efficient systems on the Top500 list. The system uses "neo-heterogeneous architecture," whereby the hardware architecture has multiple classes of compute capabilities that are accessed by a common programming model, streamlining development and optimization processes – an advantage not possible when using a combination of CPUs and GPU accelerators.


The system's leading performance and energy efficiency were achieved by using the upcoming Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v2 product family based on Intel's leading 22nm manufacturing process. In addition to powering the "Milky Way 2", these processors also power two other systems on the Top500 list from Bull*, the 54th ranked system with 557 TFlops and the 329th with 139 TFlops, as part of an "early ship" program Intel uses to equip supercomputer customers. The products will be generally available next quarter, and will feature up to 12 cores and up to 2.7GHz clock speeds, delivering 259 GFlops per socket, a 56 percent increase over the previous generation.


More than 80 percent (403 systems) of the supercomputers on the 41st edition of the Top500 list are powered by Intel processors. Of those systems making their first appearance on the list, Intel-powered installations account for 98 percent. The June edition of the list had recorded 11 systems based on the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor, including the Petaflops class systems like "Milky Way 2" at 54.9 PFlops and "Stampede" at 8.5 PFlops of peak performance.


The semi-annual TOP500 list of supercomputers is the work of Hans Meuer of the University of Mannheim, Erich Strohmaier and Horst Simon of the U.S. Department of Energy's National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center, and Jack Dongarra of the University of Tennessee. The complete report is available athttp://www.top500.org/


New Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor 3000 and 7000 Product Families

Intel also announced the expansion of its current generation Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors with the addition of five new products that feature various performance options, memory capacity, power efficiency and form factors that are available today. The Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor 7100 family is designed and optimized to provide the best performance and offer the highest level of features, including 61 cores clocked at 1.23GHz, 16 GB of memory capacity support (double the amount previously available in accelerators or coprocessors) and over 1.2 TFlops of double precision performance. The Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor 3100 family is designed for high performance per dollar value. The family features 57 cores clocked at 1.1 GHz and 1TFlops of double precision performance.


Lastly, Intel added another product to the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor 5100 family announced last year. Named the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor 5120D, it is optimized for high-density environments with the ability to allow sockets to attach directly to a mini-board for use in blade form factors.


"Knights Landing" – A Choice of Coprocessor or CPU
Intel revealed details of its second generation Intel Xeon Phi products aimed to further increase their supercomputing capabilities. Codenamed "Knights Landing," the next generation of Intel MIC Architecture-based products will be available as a coprocessor or a host processor (CPU) and manufactured using Intel's 14nm process technology featuring second generation 3-D tri-gate transistors.


As a PCIe card-based coprocessor, "Knights Landing" will handle offload workloads from the system's Intel Xeon processors and provide an upgrade path for users of current generation of coprocessors, much like it does today. However, as a host processor directly installed in the motherboard socket, it will function as a CPU and enable the next leap in compute density and performance per watt, handling all the duties of the primary processor and the specialized coprocessor at the same time. When used as a CPU, "Knights Landing" will also remove programming complexities of data transfer over PCIe, common in accelerators today.


To further boost the performance for HPC workloads, Intel will significantly increase the memory bandwidth for all "Knights Landing" products by introducing integrated on-package memory. This will allow customers to take full advantage of available compute capacity without encountering memory bandwidth bottlenecks experienced today.
