Intel CEO Bob Swan kicked off today’s news conference by sharing updates
from its Mobileye business, including a demonstration
of its self-driving robocar navigating traffic in a natural manner. The
drive demonstrated Mobileye’s unique and innovative approach to deliver
safer mobility for all with a combination of artificial intelligence,
computer vision, the regulatory science model of RSS
and true redundancy through independent sensing systems.

Swan also highlighted Intel’s
work with the American Red Cross and its Missing Maps project
improve disaster preparedness. Using integrated AI acceleration on 2nd
Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, Intel is helping the
American Red Cross and its Missing Maps project to build highly accurate
maps with bridges and roads for remote regions of the world, which helps
emergency responders in the event of a disaster.

“At Intel, our ambition is to help customers make the most of technology
inflections like AI, 5G and the intelligent edge so that together we can
enrich lives and shape the world for decades to come. As we highlighted
today, our drive to infuse intelligence into every aspect of computing
can have positive impact at unprecedented scale,” Swan said.

Intelligence-Driven Mobile Computing

Mobile computing was an area of emphasis, as Intel made announcements
spanning new products, partnerships and exciting platform-level
innovations that will transform the way people focus, create and engage.
Intel Executive Vice President Gregory Bryant announced the following:

  • First look and demonstration of the newest Intel® Core™ mobile
    processors, code-named “Tiger Lake”:
    Tiger Lake is designed to
    bring Intel’s bold, people-led vision for mobile computing to life,
    with groundbreaking advances in every vector and experience that
    matters. With optimizations spanning the CPU, AI accelerators and
    discrete-level integrated graphics based on the new Intel Xe
    graphics architecture, Tiger Lake will deliver double-digit
    performance gains1, massive AI performance improvements, a
    huge leap in graphics performance and 4x the throughput of USB 3 with
    the new integrated Thunderbolt 4. Built on Intel’s 10nm+ process, the
    first Tiger Lake systems are expected to ship this year.
  • Preview of first Xe-based discrete GPU:
    Intel Vice President of Architecture for Graphics and Software Lisa
    Pearce provided insight into the progress on the new Intel Xe
    graphics architecture, which will provide huge performance gains in
    Tiger Lake, and previewed Intel’s first Xe-based discrete
    GPU, code-named “DG1.”
  • Significant updates on Intel’s “Project Athena” innovation program,
    including the first Project Athena-verified Chromebooks:
    Athena-verified designs have been tuned, tested and verified to
    deliver fantastic system-level innovation and benefits spanning
    battery life, consistent responsiveness, instant wake, application
    compatibility and more. Intel has verified 25 Project Athena designs
    to date, and Bryant announced an expanded partnership with Google that
    has already resulted in the first two Project Athena-verified
    Chromebooks, the ASUS Chromebook Flip (C436) and the Samsung Galaxy
    Chromebook. Intel expects to verify approximately 50 more designs
    across Windows and Chrome this year and deliver a target specification
    for dual-screen PCs.
  • Form factor innovation, including dual screens and a revolutionary
    foldable design:
    Through deepened co-engineering efforts with OEM
    partners, Intel helps deliver category-defining devices based on Intel
    Core processors. This includes new dual-screen and foldable designs
    like the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold, which leverages the Intel Core
    processor with Intel Hybrid Technology (code-named “Lakefield”)
    expected to ship midyear, and the Dell Concept Duet. Bryant also
    previewed Intel’s latest concept device, a foldable OLED display form
    factor, code-named “Horseshoe Bend.” Based on Intel’s upcoming Tiger
    Lake mobile processors, the design is similar in size to a 12-inch
    laptop with a folding touchscreen display that can be opened up to
    more than 17 inches.

Intelligence-Driven Business Transformation

The data center is the force that delivers intelligence to businesses
around the world and Intel Xeon Scalable processors continue to be the
foundation of the data center. Intel Executive Vice President Navin
Shenoy announced that 3rd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors,
coming in the first half of 2020, will include new Intel® DL Boost
extensions for built-in AI training acceleration, providing up to a 60%
increase in training performance over the previous family.

Shenoy highlighted several ways Intel is threading intelligence into
data platforms across cloud, network and edge and how this is
transforming sports and entertainment:

  • Netflix optimizes and accelerates media streaming services:
    Netflix has utilized the latest video compression technology, AV1, to
    enhance Netflix’s media streaming services and bring content to life
    across the globe, with up to 60% compression efficiency over the
    previous compression technology (AVC). Intel’s and Netflix’s joint
    efforts continue with the development of an open-source
    high-performance encoder (SVT-AV1), optimized on 2nd Gen Intel Xeon
    Scalable processors, that delivers significant quality and performance
    gains making it viable for commercial deployment.
  • Enhanced athlete and viewer experiences at Tokyo 2020 with 3D
    Athlete Tracking:
    A first-of-its-kind computer vision solution, 3D
    Athlete Tracking (3DAT) uses AI to enhance the viewing experience with
    near real-time insights and visualizations. 3DAT uses highly mobile
    cameras to capture the form and motion of athletes, then applies
    algorithms optimized with Intel DL Boost and powered by Intel Xeon
    Scalable processors to analyze the biomechanics of athletes’
    movements. Shenoy announced that this technology will enhance replays
    of the 100-meter and other sprinting events at the Olympic Games Tokyo
  • Large-scale volumetric video streaming: Intel and the sports
    industry are transforming the sports viewing experience with
    volumetric video, an important progression toward enabling sports
    viewing without limitations. Intel® True View synthesizes the entire
    volume of the stadiums’ field to provide endless angles that allow
    fans to choose any vantage point and player perspective and stream
    from their devices. Intel and the NFL showcased the power of streaming
    volumetric video with a play from Week 15’s Cleveland Browns-Arizona
    Cardinals game. The data produced from the first quarter of an NFL
    game alone reaches beyond 3TB per minute – an exponential increase
    requiring tremendous computing power.

More information on all of these announcements, including visual assets
from the event, is available in the CES
press kit on the Intel Newsroom
