Chip flaw could lead to class action suit vs Intel

Chip flaw could lead to class action suit vs Intel

Intel says it was notified about the bugs in June.

Currently Intel now has approximately two million cars from Volkswagen, Nissan and BMW using Road Experience Management tech developed by Mobileye in the crowdsourcing of data needed to build as well as rapidly update high-definition maps that are scalable and low-priced in the course of this year.

Then Krzanich turned to his prepared keynote address, which featured flying drones and a guest appearance from former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and National Football League analyst Tony Romo. They included an instrument-free musical performance by an "algorithm-and-blues" band, an autonomous driving demonstration by Intel partner Mobileye, a flight demonstration of the electric Volocopter, and a Guinness record-breaking show of 100 drones operating without Global Positioning System control. As part of the deal, SAIC will develop autonomous vehicles based on Mobileye technology.

"Data is the foundation of innovation", Krzanich said, as he outlined Intel's vision for technology.

During his speech, Krzanich announced Intel's opening of a movie studio and an exploratory partnership with Paramount Pictures to make films that would immerse the viewer directly into the action. The Intel Flight Control Technology used in the Volocopter is based on the intelligence found in the Intel Falcon 8+ drone used for inspection, surveying and mapping, showing the powerful intersection of data and autonomous technology.

News reports that more than $20 million in share sales by Krzanich were scheduled in October of a year ago before the company made public that its processors were vulnerable to hackers are "troubling", Senators Jack Reed and John Kennedy wrote in Tuesday letters to the Securities Exchange Commission and the Justice Department. Loihi, an Intel chip created to simulate a brain, is one of those chips that Krzanich mentioned as an example.

Last month, the FDA approved a gene therapy called Luxturna, which can treat a rare eye disease that causes blindness. And the company is also working on covering patients' out of pocket costs as part of the overall price.

Intel also said that it would join forces with SAIC and NavInfo, a digital mapping company, to extend the crowdsourced map building that is necessary to roll out self-driving vehicles to China.

"Security is job number one for Intel and our industry". Broadcasts will be available in the U.S. using a soon-to-be released NBC Sports VR app. Intel will also use 5G during the Olympics Winter Games to show sports and entertainment experiences with VR and 360-degree video. The partnership will allow Intel to penetrate a lucrative market where restrictions have been placed on foreign firms.

A vulnerability was recently reported on which impacted Intel processors, it essentially meant that a hacker could navigate into the memory of your computer and read data as it is being handled by your processor cores. These advances, including quantum and neuromorphic computing, have the potential to help industries, research institutions and society solve problems that now overwhelm today's classical computers. Intel's neuromorphic research prototype chip ("Loihi") is now fully functioning and will be shared with research partners this year.

This step shows Intel's efforts to keep up with organizations like Google, IBM, and Microsoft, who are investing a lot in quantum computing.

Krzanich took time to tout the company's 49-qubit chip, which he described as a "major breakthrough" for quantum computing, before touting the changes in transport Intel is helping to bring about. Quantum computing is the ultimate in parallel processing, and Krzanich noted it has the potential to compute at a far greater speed than anything ever achieved before.
