    Thank you Ian for another interesting interview!

    Its nice to hear that talk from Intel - and show this side of Intel that is very much alive. They have a rough start, but the future is there if they grasp it.

    Instead of this hel bend on going into the tradional phone market, with tons of stupid PR, Antutu and old AMD K7 paranoia, we get this:

    "I think vertical integration covers many areas, and we will end up with a strategy that has very specific solutions maybe for the retail environment, or communications for example, and help in that broad deployment of intelligent solutions."

    Its the way of thinking that will save Intel on the long 10-20 year term. But ofcourse the challenge is to find the specific areas - pillars - to build. The story about the lost water in the pipes shows how difficult it is. The solution is eg. already on the market by Grundfos, that also build on the most technological difficult core competences here; sensors and pumps.

    But Intel will find its own way with people like ROS. There will be lots of project and strategy failures before they can harvest. But at least its not a dead end fighting in red ocean with Samsung, Apple, and the entire ARM ecosystem.

    Not one of my favourite articles. This guy is all buzzwords. Reply

    Interesting.

    I expect a huge increase in sophistication of transport-related computing power: all the autos on the road communicating with one another. Traffic management. Quest for more efficiency.

    My time spent in the UK is laughably brief, just a couple of weeks totals so far, but I still view the UK as a source of automotive innovation. At least on the high end.

    good ! ROS: We take interns from all disciplines – computer science, engineering, finance, marketing, so they are not all in the sciences. I think Intel is a company that is built on innovation and driving change as well as the value of technology. All of our innovation relies on challenging the status quo year after year, so finding people with the passion and interest that are looking to question and challenge is a key skill we look at. We always look at people willing to make a difference and change things – beyond that, for the specific disciplines we are always looking for people with a strong technology interest and an ability to take that and join that with real-life problems. I think the sweet spot of the industry has moved from the hardcore designer to the architecture of solutions, and learning to control that complete experience – that means you need to have knowledge of environments so it helps to find users that have a creative discipline and can implement that in a technological way. Many different types come into Intel which is great – Intel UK has employees of over 30+ nationalities, speaking 40+ languages, resulting in a very diverse employee base. Reply

    ROS: I think having that capability from the data center, cloud and all the way through to the end point bring value. In reality, these are going to be systems of systems and very heterogeneous environments, and I think there are going to be different points to consider. I think vertical integration covers many areas, and we will end up with a strategy that has very specific solutions maybe for the retail environment, or communications for example, and help in that broad deployment of intelligent solutions.

    IC: One question I like at all my interviews is this – if a high school/college/university student wants to have a goal of working with the company, what would you find is the best way going about doing it? I met some of the interns earlier today in the middle of their university courses! http://vieene.co/bop-nu
