Research at Intel Day 2009 – Tomorrow’s Ideas TODAY!

I&aposm sure that you have heard about and seen Intel&aposs Sponsor of Tomorrow campaign that show cases the bright people who developed yesterday much of the technology that your using today. But the big question that everyone has is "What will be the technology that we use tomorrow?" We&aposll the best way to find the answer is the annual Research@Intel event.

Justin Rattner Keynote

On June 18th Intel pulled together a large collection of the best idea we having going in the labs right now. Our Intel Labs groups set up an all day event at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California. The event was attended by the main stream media, tech press, academic community, tech bloggers and a few key Intel customers.

The day was kicked off with a few opening remarks by Justin Rattner, VP of Intel Labs, who reviewed Intel&aposs research programs introduced the main themes for this years event. The technology showcase was segmented into four focus are zones: Immersive Connected Experience Zone, Mobility Zone, Eco-Innovation Zone and Enterprise Zone. The attendees them made there way into the technology showcase where they watch live demos at one of many booths in each zone.

Parallel Programming Booth

I was most interested in the Immersive Connected Experience Zone where out software teams were presenting two key demos of two experimental Parallel Programming Tools, both were applied to optimize computer vision. The first was Concurrent Collections for C++ which is a new language to describe parallel computations. The second is Ct Technology that extends C/C++ to simplify data parallel programs.

The Intel Software Network video crew (ie. Jerry) was on site to shoot videos of both demos along with many other demos and is currently working (right NOW) to edit and post the demos asap. Check out Take 5 or Intel Software Network Television next week to see the demos in action.

Research@Intel Day 2009

Another highlight of the day for me was the University of Illinois demonstration of the Tele-immersive Environment for EVErybody. The demo consisted of two 3D cameras that could determine depth of objects and unify the two video streams in to spacial correct overlays (ie the people and objects closest to the cameras were in front). They had a demo where two people could both virtually have a light saber duel and as they moved around it would correctly display the motion of the light sabers as if it was two people together in 3D space.

I would encourage to to check out the Intel Labs official coverage of the events on their site and come back early next week to see our videos.
