SAN FRANCISCO—At the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) here this week, CEO Brian Krzanich noted that computing essentially is everywhere today, but that "what is changing is that computing and the computing experience are becoming personalized." Krzanich said that the evolution of computing going forward will be based on three assumptions: "sensification," or that sensory input from the systems—such as touch, sound and sight—will become increasingly personal; computing will be smart and connected via the Internet of things (IoT); and that the devices will become an "extension of you." Those assumptions formed the foundation of this year's IDF, with much of the focus being on the end user experience—from immersive gaming to devices to robots—and the software and hardware tools (such as RealSense 3D cameras and the Curie IoT module) that developers can use to provide and enhance those experiences. Flip through this eWEEK slide show for a look at some of the sights at Intel's three-day event.
