Intel CEO Confronts Chip Security Flaws As AMD Fixes Raise Issues

Intel CEO Confronts Chip Security Flaws As AMD Fixes Raise Issues

"Security is job No. 1 for Intel and our industry".

Intel's chips are invisible to most people, tiny components hidden inside desktop computers or data centers.

Krzanich recommended PC and smartphone users update their operating systems to get the latest protections in software patches.

"As of now we have not received any information that these exploits have been used to obtain customer data, and we're working tirelessly on these issues to ensure it stays that way", he said.

The Intel CEO also informed his CES audience that his company's autonomous driving tech - Mobileye - would be used by a number of carmakers, including BMW, Volkswagen and Nissan.

In immersive media area he introduced the newly established Intel Studios and announced Paramount Pictures will be the first major Hollywood studio to explore this technology in tandem with Intel to see if it all pans out. Intel hopes that cars driven by machines could create enormous new demand for its computer chips because of the enormous computing power those vehicles require. "Data is going to redefine how we experience life - in our work, in our homes, how we travel, and how we enjoy sports and entertainment", he said.

Intel will also tie up with SAIC Motor Corp, which will use Mobileye technology to develop Level 3, 4 and 5 autonomous cars in China, the chipmaker said.

Krznaich brought a Mobileye prototype auto to the stage at the end of Monday's talk, cameras tucked discretely inside, and promised to drive it to work at Intel's headquarters in Santa Clara, California.

Beyond autonomous cars, Krzanich also demonstrated the Volocopter, a fully electric, vertical takeoff and landing aircraft designed for passenger transport. Those maps would then be used by autonomous vehicles for navigation.

Krzanich was the keynote speaker at the Consumer Electronics Show.

He announced Intel is partnering with Ferrari North America to bring the power of AI to the Ferrari Challenge North America Series that will take place on six courses in the USA this year.

He also announced that Intel would be working with Ferrari on AI drones to cover Ferrari Challenge North America Series racing.

Intel has put particular emphasis on self-driving cars, spending $15 billion previous year to buy a small Israeli company called Mobileye that had an early lead in producing technologies for that market.

Intel announced a new chip for "neuromorphic" computing - technology that enables computers to think more like human or animal brains. The 49 qubit test chip will allow researchers to assess and improve error correction techniques and to simulate computational problems. Quantum computing is the ultimate in parallel processing, he said, noting that it has the potential to compute at far greater speeds than anything achieved before.
