Intel wants to put the smart into your smartwatch with data, analytics and chips

Mark Hachman | Dec. 10, 2014
Intel may be late to the IoT game but it's working hard to catch up, emphasizing its data centers and analytics offerings as much as its chips.

Wen-Hann Wang, vice president and managing director of Intel Labs, said Intel's research teams are working on ways to harvest power by translating vibration into energy that a wearable can use, while maximizing efficiency in general. Wang also said that Intel had developed and would license what it called enhanced privacy ID technology, which identifies a device as a member of a group, rather than something that's locked to you, personally. Finally, Intel is working to prioritize video among embedded devices through quality of service, while cutting the power necessary to transmit video.

But for now, Intel's busy nailing down the details. Some have said wearables are just wrist computers. Intel undoubtedly hopes so, because computers are a business it's winning.
