IDF Day One: Intel Highlights Smart Devices, Security, Robots

By Jeffrey Burt  |  Posted 2015-08-19

SAN FRANCISCO—This year's Intel Developer Forum has a different vibe from past IDF shows. On the first day (Aug. 18), Intel touched on its upcoming 14-nanometer "Skylake" processors but spent much of the time on technologies going into the silicon that will improve the user experience and push what can be done in wearables, the Internet of things (IoT) and PC gaming. CEO Brian Krzanich touched on how Intel's RealSense 3D camera technology can be used in everything from robotics to games to more mobile devices, and its support for platforms beyond Windows and Android, including Linux and the Robot Operating System. Intel is expanding what it can do in wearables and IoT, from unveiling a software platform for the Quark-based Curie module to working with Microchip and Amtel to implement the chip maker's Enhanced Privacy Identification technology for improved security and privacy in connected devices. Chris Young, SVP and GM of Intel's Security Group, discussed strides the company is making in that arena, while Kirk Skaugen, SVP and GM of the Client Computing Group, and Doug Fisher, SVP and GM of the Software and Services Group, focused on the PC gaming market.
