The essense of graduate school research is for grad students to perform research in an area that someone cares about, whether it's public or private. It sounds like researchers will have every opportunity to publish whatever work they do, but not patent it. That seems fair to me.. Often times graduate students are spoon fed a commercially viable technology to work on; it's reasonable that the entity doing the funding at a minimum will not be excluded from using it.

Somewhat new planned effort to be in touch with academia for the industries, the model being used by Intel is somewhat different then being used by other industries, if we do not stick to the numbers this will be giving good results in terms of research outcomes.

Good riddance and I hope they help public schools when govts are cutting. Intel has a strong relationship with selected schools. Hope this will help them to expand this project. But closing it to competitors? I will not work on such projects if I am a grad student because it offers no publication incentives.

It seems like, we are beginning to create a model of power centers within our own great nation and ignoring the fundamentals of models and processes that encouraged, created and allowed the execution of innovative ideas of the individuals, a real competitive spirit. For example, IBM Common Platform and Intel's current model, I think, will hinder and harm the demand and supply equation of talent that we badly need to create jobs at home. From my personal experience in advanced processes, technology and automated manufacturing system development and execution, I can say with a highest level of confidence that innovation starts when you provide more individuals the opportunity to practice and observe the real processes being introduced and run under advanced manufacturing mode at home not abroad, by out sourcing manufacturing off shore, just to take advantage of the cheap labor factor only. Innovation and advanced developments are Jewels and real strength of the nation to be worn first at home to shine and show, as an example, our real strength to the World to follow our lead. So please create an innovative model of real change that produces more talent at home as well as keep our real competitive spirit alive. Please for God sake don't strangulate it. We are capable of better thinking for the common good. If anyone has difficulty in thinking and creating such a competitive model meeting the needs of the times and innovation, please contact me. I will lead you in the spirit of real service. In this regards I will be willing to allow EE-Times to use my privacy rights carefully only for serious party. Thanks. Respectfully Submitted.

if i calculate the funding per graduate student in Stanford center then it comes to 50,000 USD per student per year (not including the full time Intel researcher and supervisors). If i assume that the money includes the scholarship or assistantship money then how much money will there be actually available to research?! Am i missing something here?

I'd love to hear what people in research think of this new model. Chime in!

It would seem like having 4 full time people in the lab would be enough. The need to keep possible competitors out just seems like it's not research any more...
