"Intel is aware of the letter released by Senators Kennedy and Reed", the company said in an emailed statement.

Recent revelations about processor architectures within Intel chips which has the potential to affect nearly all computers and users worldwide, either by making sensitive data vulnerable or massively slowing down processing times, have made headline news globally.

Speaking at the keynote address, Krzanich spoke on a diverse range of topics, but was first compelled to address the elephant in the room.

About 2 million vehicles from BMW, Nissan and Volkswagen will this year start using Mobileye Road Experience Management (REM) to crowdsource data and so create and easily update low-priced, scalable high-definition maps. Using the Mobileye REM technology, SAIC will develop level three, four and five autonomous cars.

"Data is the foundation of innovation", Krzanich said, as he outlined Intel's vision for technology. These discoveries will impact almost every sector of innovation, and Intel is at the forefront of this revolution, bringing to life the promise of data-driven experiences through autonomous driving, AI, 5G and VR.

In the China market, Krzanich disclosed two critical partnerships with leading automotive manufacturer SAIC Motor and digital mapping company NavInfo.

Airtel Broadband Users Can Avail Free Amazon Prime Membership for One Year
The offer for one year of Amazon Prime is activated exclusively through the Airtel TV app, the company said in a statement. Airtel V-Fiber Broadband customers are also eligible for Amazon Prime membership benefits.

Intel shares were under pressure last week after researchers pointed to the so-called Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities affecting the chips powering most modern PCs and many mobile devices. Such a leak could potentially expose stored passwords and other sensitive data, including personal photos, emails and instant messages.

This "immersive media" viewing experience is also being expanded by installing cameras in players' helmets in the National Football League to provide viewers with their perspectives, Intel announced.

As part of this, Intel announced an "exploratory partnership" with Paramount Pictures, with the latter company's chair Jim Gianopulos saying that such technology is "the key to our future" in the creation of a new form of entertainment. That could include stuff like weather data, incident reports and construction information. And Krzanich showed off a more advanced "qubit" chip for powerful quantum computing.

Having this mapping information could help with the progression of autonomous cars. These advances, including quantum and neuromorphic computing, have the potential to help industries, research institutions and society solve problems that now overwhelm today's classical computers. Quantum computing is the ultimate in parallel processing, and Krzanich noted it has the potential to compute at a far greater speed than anything ever achieved before.

Intel also revealed big plans for virtual reality, immersive media, as well as Quantum computing.
