True. In fact, failure is a misnomer often. It is a matter of trial and error. Errors are part of the corrective way in which one ultimately finds solutions to problems.

Innovation and Control

Balancing creative thinking, control, and innovation are world class challenges. Until you know the outcome, exploring new ideas may be either undisciplined play or the foundation of the next breakthrough. Both technical and business innovation often grow out of the most unexpected places - and the fast failures may be early steps on the journey towards the next breakthrough. I wish them luck as Intel Labs Vows to Run Tight Ship: "The 1,000-person group aims to be very disciplined, take risks, fail fast, improve innovation yield, encourage new ideas... and be tightly aligned with Intel's business units."

Rick: "FYI, Intel has been shipping Fulcrom's networking silicon for some time. It is also said to be rolling some of Fulcrum's technology into sa future data center interconnect technology."

Thank you very much for this info. About data center market, I strongly believe that Fulcrum interconnect technology may suppose a heavy weapon to help Intel facing the ARM 64bits challenge in the server arena.

@Garcia-Lasheras  Your speculation certainly seems reasonable.

Anyone could point to me whereI could find Intel's paper about PUF mentioned in this article?

Garcia-Lasheras  I think you are on to something.

 

The very first company that Intel allowed to use its foundry is Achronix, a startup FPGA company.

Certainly it is a first step for Intel to try to share its foundry costs with other companies, but I always thought that was weird that the first company they did this with was a small startup, until I heard that the company also happens to specialize in asynchronous logic. I wonder if there was some technology sharing involved.

@zewde yeraswork: I'm not sure there is anything to suggest that they are doing so to any greaterd egree, however, than they have to this point.

I think the question is one of focus.  Intel seems to have developed notions of what areas of research they should pursue, and plan to concentrate on them.

They also sound like they will be harder-nosed about results, and ask regularly "Is this particular research effort getting anywhere?  Should we continue to fund it, or should we decide it won't pan out, kill the project, and apply the people and resources elsewhere?"

When you are dealing with the sort of advanced technologies Intel is, simply doing the research can be enormously expensive, before you ever get to something that might be used in a product.  You need the possibility of a really big win to justify placing a big bet, and Intel will be thinking about what kind of win might result from any effort.

But this does sound like R&D with more focus on D than R.

There's no dobut that Intel continues to leverage its IP dominance and extensive know-how, and that Wang's presentation highlights some of the areas where Intel is strongest. I'm not sure there is anything to suggest that they are doing so to any greaterd egree, however, than they have to this point.
