Intel has been betting big for a while now on the IoT and AI. It would appear that their bet could just be the gift that keeps on giving. As AI continues to drive more and more compute at the edge, Intel is poised to help enterprises capitalize. Below is an interview with Intel’s IoT chief, Jonathan Ballon. In the interview he explains why Intel’s business has been growing two times the market in the past eight years, and where they will play a major role in IoT adoption moving forward.
The internet of things (IoT) will probably generate the mother of all data tsunamis. Softbank anticipates we’ll see a trillion connected devices that will create $11 trillion in value by 2025. Intel is pretty happy about that, as it will create a huge demand for a data-centric world with lots of processors at both the center and the edge of the network.
Jonathan Ballon, general manager of Intel’s IoT group, spoke about IoT demand at this week’s Intel “data-centric” news event in San Francisco, where the company introduced more than 50 new products, such as its second-generation Xeon Scalable flagship processor.
