Intel Labs and Carnegie Mellon Univ. Team on Advanced Research

Intel Labs will invest $30 million over five years in two new science and technology centers hosted at Carnegie Mellon University and focused on cloud and embedded computing research.

The first Intel Science and Technology Center (ISTC) forms a new cloud computing research community that broadens Intel's "Cloud 2015" vision with new ideas from top academic researchers, and includes research that extends and improves on Intel's existing cloud computing initiatives. The center combines top researchers from Carnegie Mellon University, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of California Berkeley, Princeton University, and Intel.

The second ISTC for embedded computing forms a new collaborative community to drive research to transform experiences in the home, car and retail environment of the future. It will host researchers from Carnegie Mellon University, Cornell University, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, University of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, the University of California at Berkeley and Intel
A key area of research is to make it easier for these everyday devices to continuously collect, analyze and act on useful data from both sensors and online databases in a way that is timely, scalable and reliable. http://intel.com/go/istc
