"With Intel's help, we'll be taking advantage of the latest creative and technological tools to put our audiences literally inside the movie experience and give them a vision of the future of entertainment like never before".

His comments came at the start of his keynote Monday night to kick off the CES industry conference in Las Vegas.

"The collaboration among so many companies to address this industry-wide issue across several different processor architectures has been truly remarkable", he said. And as far as Intel's individual efforts go, Krzanich mostly repeated what the company had previously announced - that updates for more than 90% of the products released in the last five years will arrive within a week.

"We have no information these exploits have been used to obtain customer data", Krzanich said.

"We expect to solve key technical challenges that must be overcome to move quantum computing forward", Krzanich added.

"Data is going to introduce social and economic changes that we see perhaps once or twice in a century. I'm confident it will transform our lives for the better". The advances in data and AI we will see in the coming years will dwarf all of that, " he said during the speech that featured an autonomous vehicle drive onstage and helicopter lift off. The video showed from an outside point of view a horse riding toward a group of cowboys engaged in a fight. While he didn't address the shakeup in Monday's keynote, Krzanich began his remarks by addressing the security issue head-on.

For Gleb Budman's company, San Mateo-based online storage firm Backblaze, building with ARM chips would not be hard. Viewers can watch a game in VR from any perspective they would like, having fantasy stats on their displays. The Intel Flight Control Technology used in the Volocopter is based on the intelligence found in the Intel Falcon 8+ drone used for inspection, surveying and mapping, showing the powerful intersection of data and autonomous technology. There are three high-resolution cameras at the front of the vehicle that allow for a 180-degree field of view and let the car's image processor see at a distance of up to 300 meters. Krzanich showed off another new chip during his keynote, and it's a doozy: A 49-qubit chip for quantum computing.

The technology around self-driving cars is rapidly evolving. The company's emergence in this area is no surprise, given it bought Mobileye, an autonomous auto software firm, for $15 billion previous year, but Intel seems to be making progress, demonstrating a auto with 12 cameras and a 180-degree field of view, letting the vehicle "see" up to 300 metres ahead.

Whether or not you think flying cars will become a legitimate mode of transport, everyone is in love with the idea.
