Intel makes a splash at CES with autonomous driving tech, AI and Tiger Lake

Intel Corp. made a splash at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas late Monday afternoon with a range of announcements led by breakthroughs in artificial intelligence.

The AI announcement was aimed straight at the current tech battlefield of autonomous-vehicle technology. After emerging during the 2010s, it’s now potentially set to deliver in the 2020s, with likely consolidation of companies along the way.

Intel Chief Executive Officer Bob Swan started his CES conference with new from Mobileye NV, the Israeli autonomous vehicle firm it acquired for $15.3 billion in 2017. In addition to providing details of Mobileye’s progress, Swan gave a demonstration of its self-driving “robocar” navigating traffic in a natural manner.
