Tweaking Moore’s Law Intel’s Future Vision

Intel has taken their perception, vision and predicitons on how the future of our productive lives will most likely look like. The video offers and array of scenarios that are futuristic in our time!


Rajeeb Hazra, General Manager of Intel Technical Computing Group holding “Knights Corner” – Intel® Many Core Architecture co-processor capable of delivering more than 1 TFLOPS of double precision performance.

In 1997, ASCI Red at Sandia National Lab broke the teraflop barrier, using almost 10,000 Pentium chips to reach one trillion calculations per second. Total development cost was $55 million.

Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family, world’s first server chip to support the PCI Express* 3.0 I/O integration, debuts on TOP500 list, powering 10 supercomputers.

Intel’s “Knights Corner” product, the first commercial co-processor based on the Intel® Many Integrated Core (Intel® MIC) architecture, was shown for the first time breaking the barrier of 1 TFLOPS double precision performance**.

Intel announced additional investments and new partner projects with R&D laboratories to pursue the goal of achieving Exascale performance by 2018.

Intel processors power 85 percent of all new entries to the latest TOP500 list of supercomputers, with Intel Xeon processor 5600 series being most popular selected for 223 systems.


“Rattner says “mobile augmented reality” will become a part of everyday life, with cameras that you can point at an object – such as a famous ruin – and instantly receive detailed information about what it is.”

The program proposed will be able to identify virtually anything. Currently the system can identify various labels or landmarks, allowing users to learn about such items without needing a text-based search. The system can identify products barcodes or labels that allow users to search for similar products and prices, and save codes for future reference, similar to the failed CueCat of the late ’90s, but with more functionality. The system will also recognize printed text and using optical character recognition (OCR) produce a text snippet, and in some cases even translate the snippet into another language.

Trends in 2011

Just today Forbes released a 14 point list co-authored by Chirag Mehta and Ray Wang where they see cloud adoption moving from “when” to “how” and cloud solutions delivering optimization savings which allow for future innovation investment.

Source: Chirag Mehta and Ray Wang’s predictions:

1. New procurement will be replaced with cloud solutions
2. Private clouds will serve as a stepping stone to public clouds
3. Cloud customers will start asking hard questions about cloud security
4. Private clouds provide security and backup to public cloud solutions
5. A transition from best-of-breed applications to cloud mega-stacks will occur
6. Leverage of application market places and the ecosystem, System Integrators and Software Vendors, for last mile
7. Superior user experience and scale will no longer be mutually exclusive
8. Custom application development will shift to the cloud
9. Expect Development-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service to merge
10. Bet on System Integrators with extensive libraries that move beyond data integration
11. Delivery of consumer technology features into the enterprise, analytics first followed by mobile and social features
12. Customers will demand better virtualization technology
13. Simplification of the overall technology landscape due to the efficacy of cloud solutions
14. Access of Archival data online will drive governance, regulation and compliance as a core cloud competency

The Intel Reader takes pictures of text and read it aloud. It’s designed to provide access to printed text for people with dyslexia, low vision or blindness. Intel’s Digital Health Group researched and designed the mobile Intel Reader, which is built on the Intel Atom processor and run on the Moblin operating system.
