Netflix, smartphones and even on the road. Intel is at CES 2020 to show users that their solutions can be where you least imagine
A new decade is about to begin and what was far away has finally arrived. At smart technologies they are already starting to dominate the market and our daily routine, working on the roads, in their own homes and even in the entertainment segment in general. During presentation at CES 2020, a Intel, one of the companies responsible for expansion and innovation in these sectors, showed the route it will take and how this already impacts and will continue to positively impact society in the coming years.
At the start of the conference, CEO Bob Swan commented on a new partnership with mobileye, Israeli subsidiary of Intel Corporation which develops vision-based autonomous cars, along with a demo of the RoboCar (autonomous driving) which will bring more security when assisted by the Intel. In an official statement, the performance of the product was revealed.
“[Mobileye é] a combination of artificial intelligence, computer vision, the RSS ‘regulatory science’ model and true redundancy through independent detection systems”.

Still in this spirit of valuing security, a joint work with the American Red Cross was also revealed. Using artificial intelligence acceleration in second generation processors Xeon, the company reinforces the project Missing Maps in creating accurate maps indicating bridges and roads in remote regions of the world. This will help emergency responders in case of disaster.
The partnership between Intel and some services of streaming will change the way we watch series and sports on TV. Using the AV1 (video compression technology) a Netflix has been improved, giving up to 60% efficiency compared to AVC (previous technology).
The pair developed a encoder open source, called SVT-AV1, optimized on processors Xeon, of the own Intel, which makes it more viable for commercial deployment.
The company’s attention is also within the fields: technology TrueView provides “infinite angles”, synthesizing the volume of stadiums, which allows the spectator to choose “any point and perspective of the player” when broadcasting the game on their devices. For you to get an idea of the weight of technology, just in the first minutes of a game from NFL the data average was 3TB per minute.
Thinking about the Olympics, the Intel presented the 3D Athlete Tracking, which uses artificial intelligence to perform analyzes of the athlete in (almost) real time. abbreviated to 3DAT, this is a way to capture movement and analyze the biomechanics of competitors, with “highly mobile” cameras. The technology will already be in the replays of the 100-meter race, for example, among others of running (not specified by the company) along the Tokyo Olympic Games.
Not only that, the Intel will use virtual reality technology for training. The training system VR gives Intel will have as its main objective to improve the effectiveness of the training, with a more realistic experience for those who learn with feedback more accurate. Virtual reality can reduce costs and increase training efficiency. Training will also include creating digital versions, sometimes known as “digital twinning,” which can open up multiple opportunities to unleash the power of data for training, planning, and simulating various situations.
Check out how the company will be present in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in this special matter:
These three were the highlights of Navin Shenoy, Executive Vice President of Intel, throughout the presentation at CES 2020. The third generation of processors Xeon hits the market in the first half of this year, with an extension that will speed up embedded AI training.
Another highlight was mobile computing, as there was the first demonstration of the processors Core Tiger Lake, which will replace the ice and Comet Lake. Not much is known yet, however, this is the company’s new focus. The CPU has been optimised, there are IA accelerators and graphics performance and throughput “four times that of USB3 with the new and integrated Thunderbolt 4“. The first systems with the processors should be available in 2020.
The first ones will be released Chromebooks with seal of Athena Project, optimization standard, that will make notebooks pass rigorous tests, ranging from application compatibility and responsiveness, to battery life. 25 models were verified so far, and two new partnerships were announced: ASUS Chromebook Flip and the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook. By the end of the year, another 50 models will be approved, as well as an experience dedicated to dual-screen PCs.
“Our desire is to help customers make the most of technological inflections like IA, 5G and the smart edge so that together we can enrich lives and shape the world for decades to come. As we’ve talked about, the infusion of intelligence into all aspects of computing can have a positive impact on an unprecedented scale.”

Talking about dual-screen, such company technology will be applied to the folding of the Lenovo and of the Dell. the hybrid lakefield should reach the market by the middle of the year. There was, finally, the concept device of the Intel with display OLED Horseshoe Bend – a big step in the future of foldables –, and the brand was also present in the 10th generation processors in the new notebooks from LG.
