Intel boosts Developer Innovation with Open, Software-First Approach
On Day 2 of Intel Innovation, Intel illustrated how its efforts and investments to foster an open ecosystem catalyze community innovation, from silicon to systems to apps and across all levels of the software stack. Through an expanding array of platforms, tools and solutions, Intel is focused on helping developers become more productive and more capable of realizing their potential for positive social good. The company introduced new tools to support developers in artificial intelligence, security and quantum computing, and announced the first customers of its new Project Amber attestation service.
Intel Chief Technology Officer Greg Lavender said, “We are making good on our software-first strategy by empowering an open ecosystem that will enable us to collectively and continuously innovate. We are committed members of the developer community and our breadth and depth of hardware and software assets facilitate the scaling of opportunities for all through co-innovation and collaboration.”
Empowering Developers with Openness
* Codeplay, an Intel subsidiary with expertise and a track record of driving open standards and providing cross-platform implementations of SYCL and oneAPI tools, will now assume responsibility for the oneAPI development community.
* Intel will continue to deliver developer tools and easy-to-access toolkits based on those oneAPI specifications. The Intel oneAPI 2023 toolkits will ship in December with support for Intel’s latest and upcoming new CPU, GPU and FPGA architectures, and include tools like the open source SYCLomatic compatibility tool.
* Intel also announced six more education and research institutions that have formed oneAPI Centers of Excellence to expand oneAPI support in important applications and extend oneAPI educational curriculum development.
New Services Made Possible with Better Security: E-Prescriptions and Remote Care
* At the intersection of open software, hardware solutions and business need lie entirely new opportunities — like Germany’s e-prescriptions project, with the roll-out in progress. IBM developed the e-prescription solution and integrated Intel® Software Guard Extensions (SGX) with Gramine to deliver a superb customer experience while helping maintain platform integrity and the need for stringent security and privacy.
Accelerating Innovation in AI, Quantum and Neuromorphic Computing and What Comes Next
* Another benefit of open technology is that it can be combined into myriad solutions from vendors and customers with varied specialties. Red Hat is working to make the Habana® Gaudi® training accelerator available on its service to deliver “cost-efficient, high-performance, deep-learning model training and deployment – all as a managed cloud service.”
* As part of Intel’s goal to bring neuromorphic technology to commercial reality, Intel Labs announced new tools for developers including Kapoho Point, a stackable multi-board platform based on the Loihi 2 research chip, updates to its Lava open software development framework and the addition of new members and eight Intel-sponsored university projects to the Intel Neuromorphic Research Community (INRC).
* oday, the company announced the Intel® Rising Star Faculty Award program, which recognizes early-career faculty whose innovative and disruptive ideas are making significant contributions to either research or education within the semiconductor and computing industry.
