Intel Creates AI Group, Aims For More Focus ( 11

Intel's artificial intelligence efforts have been scattered over many different units but are now being united into a single operating group. The Artificial Intelligence Products Group will focus on the development of chips and software products tied to machine learning, algorithms, and deep learning. From a report: The company has been repositioning via acquisitions to focus on Internet of Things to autonomous vehicles. The upshot is that Intel is trying to build a data center to IoT stack powered by its processors. In a blog post, Rao outlined how the Artificial Intelligence Products Group will work across multiple units. Part of the group's remit will be to bring AI costs down and forge standards. Rao said the group will combine engineering, labs, software, and hardware from its portfolio.

  • If they put all of AI development under one department, how are they going to fool the rest of the organization into believing that the artificial intelligence exists, and isn't just a rehash of collision detection, route calculation, and remote control schemes used to move cars around?

      This is standard procedure for Intel employees who know the ways of the borg.

      Never ever join one of these groups. The last one was Intel Security, recently cast to the wind. In the case of the AI group, if you're doing AI stuff, be the AI expert in another group and work with them, but do not join the AI group. You will be fired in 2-5 years.

  • Intel, seeing their profits go bye-bye in an IoT world, decides that if they cannot produce small processors for IoT, better tether IoT to Intel processors at the mothership. Gee, Intel, and you came up with this hair brained scheme all on your own?

    • Uh, why can't they recreate the i960 or even i860 for this, and release that? Where is it written that an embedded processor for IoT has to be an ARM or an x86? Granted, their attempts at going away from x86 had repeated failures, but that doesn't imply that they can't produce a successful non x86 CPU for non Wintel applications

      seeing their profits go bye-bye in an IoT world

      The demand for computers of ALL sizes is growing. Desktop PC sales may be flat, but server demand is growing, and x86 is still the best server chip.

      However, the ARM architecture & licensing terms have largely democratized CPU manufacturing such that Intel does have more competition biting at their heels.

      If there is a market for "big iron" AI servers, Intel wants to be part of it.
