IT & Network Infrastructure : Intel Labs: Building Better Robot Butlers, Digital Homes, Cloud Systems
PITTSBURGH- Over the past nine years, scientists from Intel Labs have been collaborating with the faculty and students of Carnegie Mellon University here to work on research projects at the cutting edge of the tech industry. Like similar Intel Labs at Berkeley, Calif., and Seattle, the Intel Labs Pittsburgh is operated under the Open Collaborative Research model designed by Intel as a way to enable its researchers to work closely with CMU on joint projects and avoid disputes over IP rights. Intel Labs recently hosted an open house at its Pittsburgh location to give the public a look at the various research projects that are underway at the facility at the Collaborative Innovation Center. Those projects run the gamut, from robots and compute clusters to the digital homes of the future, computational technology for agriculture, algorithms for improved digital photography to a data analytic platform called "dicer," and all fall under the umbrella categories of cloud computing and embedded intelligent systems.
