Intel at Computex Swings From PCs to IoT, 5G and Robotics

At the Computex 2016 show this week in Taipei, Intel executives demonstrated the chip maker's intentions to move aggressively into emerging markets, such as the Internet of things (IoT), 5G, robotics and connected transportation platforms, while reminding attendees that the PC is still an integral part of the company's future. Intel offered up new processors for both the data center and high-end clients, with Navin Shenoy, corporate vice president and general manager of Intel's Client Computing Group (CCG), saying from the event stage and in an accompanying blog post that PCs are foundational to what the company is doing, despite the years-long contraction of the global market. "Today's PCs are better than ever," Shenoy wrote in the blog post. "If you haven't held a new two-in-one, played on a new gaming system or tried a new desktop all-in-one, you are missing out." But Intel officials have said that the PC's role is changing, that it's becoming one of the growing numbers of devices and systems that are connecting to the Internet, cloud and each other. And those devices and the connectivity were key parts of Intel's keynote address at Computex. (Photos courtesy of Intel)
