Intel To Spend $40m+ On Research Initiatives Across The Globe
The three ICRIs will collaborate with their own multi-university communities and other ICRIs, as well as the U.S.-based ISTCs, strengthening Intel's global research network. In addition, two previously established centers are being incorporated in the ICRI program: Intel Visual Computing Institute (Saarland University) and the Intel-NTU Connected Context Computing Center (National Taiwan University), extending Intel's global research network even further. Each institute will have a specialized focus, but is encouraged to incorporate the unique environments within their region, country and area of research.
When we think of Intel, we typically think transistors. But it's great to get an eye-opening look at what else the company is doing; needless to say, we're eager to see what comes of all of this.
