Intel has hit a "major breakthrough" in quantum computing

Intel will release updates for the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities by the end of January for all chips released in the last five years, CEO Brian Krzanich said Monday.

"The future of both neuromorphic and quantum computing are coming much faster than anyone imagined", he said.

Krzanich showed how companies are using Intel's technology to transform their businesses through AI.

Reports emerged last week that Intel and its hardware, operating system and other industry partners were working on patches for a major vulnerability in processors that could allow an attacker to collect sensitive data from computing devices that were working as designed. The chip is named after a chain of lakes in Alaska, a nod to the extreme cold temperatures and the entangled state that quantum bits (or "qubits") require to function.

"This 49-qubit chip pushes beyond our ability to simulate and pushes towards quantum supremacy, the point at which quantum computers far and away surpass the world's best supercomputers", Krzanich said. While quantum computing has the potential to solve problems conventional computers can't handle, the field is still nascent.

During a keynote delivered during the Consumer Electronics Show 2018, Intel disclosed the progress it has made in the driverless auto space. This theme was expressed by Intel stating, "To power the technology of the future and create fantastic new experiences, we need to unlock the power of data".

Ines Arrimadas added: "It's evident that for governing Catalonia you have to be in Catalonia - you can't do that via WhatsApp or as a hologram".

During his presentation Monday, Krzanich also launched into a flashy and wide-ranging celebration of the way Intel and its partners are harnessing data for futuristic innovations, from 3D entertainment partnerships with Paramount Pictures to virtual-reality collaborations with the 2018 Winter Olympics and a new breakthrough in so-called quantum computing.

During the performance, musicians "played data" via gesture control while wearing smart gloves; drones and AI musicians played music learned in real-time; and location technology was paired with sensors and cameras to present data collected from dancing and acrobatics.

Mr. Krzanich's trade stands out because it deviated from the CEO's previous pattern of incremental sales of Intel stock, according to Ben Silverman, a researcher at InsiderScore LLC, a clearinghouse for information about trades made by corporate and institutional insiders. Loihi put training and inference onto a single chip, which Intel officials say will make machine learning more energy-efficient.

Krzanich noted the significance of this research and the progress Intel is making. Intel will place multiple cameras along one side or along the perimeter of an arena, then use complex software to stitch the output together, giving viewers the opportunity to watch the game from any angle they choose.

The push for new capabilities like quantum computing and neuromorphic processors-which are being created to mimic the way the human brain gathers and processes data-is being accelerated with the rise of such emerging technologies as AI, machine learning, data analytics and virtual reality, and the rapid growth in the amount of structured and unstructured data being generated.
