Now that the world is seeing a multitude of innovations powered with new technologies, there are now devices that carry specific feature sets to cater to a variety of users. The flexibility of the Sixth Generation Intel Core Processors can power Hybrids, AIOs, and the company's homegrown Computestick, all of which are devices that come in different form factors, but can still deliver a unique personal computing experience to users.
“As technology evolves and becomes more accessible, consumers will continue to discover new ways to utilize more of it. The 6th Generation Intel Core Processors have the power and performance to keep pace with the growing needs of our users and deliver an amazing computing experience,” added Chisholm.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is Taking Shape
A new wave of devices now take advantage of the "Internet of Things," making it now possible for these "things" to offer insights to different activities. Hence, us users will now be able to reap and maximize its benefits.
This is where Intel's Curie module comes in. It's a small chip from Intel that is designed to be used in wearables to allow real-time data monitoring through its built-in sensors.
“The Internet of Things is one of the main drivers of innovation today. With almost 50 billion devices connected to the Internet, IoT presents another opportunity to enhance daily life through technology. Intel is bringing this experience closer to consumers through technologies like Intel Curie, and the boundaries for the use of such innovative technologies is truly only limited by users’ imaginations,” noted Chisholm.
Intel Powers the Education Sector
With the Internet of Things available for everyone, even private institutions and those in the education sector can take full advantage of the new technology as they create new things with it.
The company's collaboration with various 'maker Labs,' organizations such as the Philippine Society of Information Technology Educators and academia from the University of the Philippines were provided with a total of 400 Intel® Galileo development boards for students and individuals who want to take a try in making their innovations powered by the Intel chip.
“Our work with private institutions and the academia demonstrates the results of what technology can do for education. A great example of this is our work in rebuilding and providing digital devices to Sto. Niño Elementary School, where we were able incorporate technology into the students’ education,” said Chisholm.
“These efforts integrate our innovations deeply into education efforts locally, and enable us to contribute to the Filipino community – by ensuring that students and individuals are given a strong chance to realize their full potential through the power of technology,” he concluded.So far that's it, I'm sure there is more to come from Intel and we'll definitely keep an eye on your development to uplift the life of everyone.
