This Year’s IDF: Developed By You

Intel’s annual Developer Forum is next week, and I’m excited about what Intel has in store for you.

This year’s forum is really about you, the growing ecosystem of developers, entrepreneurs, makers, gamers and innovators who are redefining computing technology.

I can’t imagine a better place to bring the latest technology trends than our annual gathering in San Francisco. As an IDF veteran, I speak from experience. 

For nearly two decades, Intel has invited the most enterprising developers in technology to get a first glimpse of the innovations that power what Moore’s Law delivers next.

As my colleagues and I prepared for this year’s program, we quickly agreed that there has never been a richer, more far-reaching and diverse set of opportunities for developers.  

It is easy to understand why. Not only are we seeing the world of PCs, devices and servers evolve, we are witnessing the boundaries of computing itself expand. 

So to us it was natural that IDF 2015 should embrace everything from wearable technology and 3-D vision integrated into the next generation of robotics to IoT systems that are intelligent, invisible and invincibly secure.

Some of you have asked me how we can make a large forum like this relevant to everyone who is attending. We have three assumptions about what will define technology over the coming years.

First, we see the “sensification” of computing emerging as the next frontier of compute innovation. For a few years, we’ve talked about the immersive experience of computing. Now we are pushing technology to capture what we can see, hear and even feel. That means devices that respond to voice commands without pushing any buttons. Gaming experiences that use our new 6th Gen Intel® Core™ K SKU CPUs to enable new levels of immersive play. And robots that can see, respond to us and interact with us more naturally.

Second, we think everything will be smart and connected. Not just our PCs and our phones. But the payment systems that instantly recognize us. Doors that instantly unlock when they “see” family members. Or smart, touch-screen vending machines that allow you to charge your purchase to your phone automatically.   

Finally, we see computing increasingly as an extension of you: a world in which wearable technology integrates computing power and analytics in fashion, eyeglasses, jewelry and even sportswear.

The wearable revolution is also more than smart devices. We are on the cusp of a dramatic transformation of how we might experience and enjoy amateur and professional sports. If you have any doubt, wait till you see our live BMX bike demo – with real-time data capture using the Intel technology.

We have good reason to believe that the developer community is going to love what we have in store next week.   

What will YOU develop?
