–Dr. Rich Uhlig, managing director, Intel Labs

RESEARCH PRESENTED THIS WEEK INCLUDES:

Distributed Autonomous and Collaborative Multi-Robot System Featuring a Low-Power Robot SoC in 22nm CMOS for Integrated Battery-Powered Minibots

Abstract: In this paper, Intel demonstrates a distributed, autonomous and collaborative multi-robot system featuring integrated, battery-powered, crawling and jumping minibots. For example, in a search and rescue application, four minibots collaboratively navigate and map an unknown area without a central server or human intervention, detecting obstacles and finding paths around them, avoiding collisions, communicating among themselves, and delivering messages to a base station when a human is detected.

Each minibot platform integrates: (i) a camera, LIDAR and audio sensors for real-time perception and navigation; (ii) a low-power custom robot SoC for sensor data fusion, localization and mapping, multi-robot collaborative intelligent decision-making, object detection and recognition, collision avoidance, path planning, and motion control; (iii) low-power ultra-wideband (UWB) radio for anchorless dynamic ranging and inter-robot information exchange; (iv) long-range radio (LoRa) for robot-to-base-station critical message delivery; (v) battery and PMIC for platform power delivery and management; (vi) 64MB pseudo-SRAM (PSRAM) and 1GB flash memory; and (vii) actuators for crawling and jumping motions.

Why It Matters: Multi-robot systems, working collectively to accomplish complex missions beyond the capability of a single robot, have the potential to disrupt a wide range of applications ranging from search and rescue missions to precision agriculture and farming. The multi-bot systems can dramatically speed the time to perform a single task. For example, shortening time and latency for first responders during an emergency. However, advanced robotics and artificial intelligence have, to date, required large investment and intensive computational power. The development of these distributed, autonomous and collaborative minibots, which are operated by a system-on-chip that delivers efficiencies orders of magnitude beyond what was previously possible, represents the first step toward enabling the development of energy- and cost-efficient multi-robot systems.

5G Wireless Communication: An Inflection Point

Abstract: The 5G era is upon us, ushering in new opportunities for technology innovation across the computing and connectivity landscape. 5G presents an inflection point where wireless communication technology is driven by application and expected use cases, and where the network will set the stage for data-rich services and sophisticated cloud apps, delivered faster and with lower latency. This paper will highlight the disruptive architectures and technology innovations required to make 5G and beyond a reality.

Why It Matters: Whereas 4G was about moving data faster, 5G will bring more powerful wireless networks that connect “things” to each other, to people and to the cloud. The 5G network will set the stage for data-rich services and sophisticated cloud apps, delivered faster and with lower latency than ever. It will transform our lives by helping deliver a smart and connected society with smart cities, self-driving cars and new industrial efficiencies. For this to happen, networks must become faster, smarter and more agile to handle the unprecedented increase in volume and complexity of data traffic as more devices become connected and new digital services are offered.

Applying Principles of Neural Computation for Efficient Learning in Silicon

Abstract: Intel’s Loihi novel processor implements a microcode-programmable learning architecture supporting a wide range of neuroplasticity mechanisms under study at the forefront of computational neuroscience. By applying many of the fundamental principles of neural computation found in nature, Loihi promises to provide highly efficient and scalable learning performance for supervised, unsupervised, reinforcement-based and one-shot paradigms. This talk describes these principles as applied to the Loihi architecture and shares our preliminary results toward the vision of low-power, real-time on-chip learning.

Why It Matters: Deep learning algorithms mainly used today in machine learning (ML) applications are very costly in terms of energy consumption, due to their large amount of required computations and large model sizes. Many issues, such as connectivity to the cloud, latency, privacy and public safety, could be resolved by establishing intelligent computing at the edge. By applying principles of neural computation to architecture, circuit and integrated design solutions, we could minimize the energy consumption and computational demand of edge learning systems.

Novel Memory/Storage Solutions for Memory-Centric Computing

Abstract: The exponential growth in connected devices and systems is generating a staggering amount of digital records. These records not only need to be stored but also need to be mined for useful information. This era of big data is driving fundamental changes in both memory and storage hierarchy. Data and compute need to be brought closer together to avoid networking and storage protocol inefficiencies. This drives the demand for larger memory capacity, which is currently hindered by memory subsystem cost. In addition, the need for memory persistency will not only streamline storage protocols but will also significantly reduce bring-up time after system failure. In this presentation, novel solutions for memory-centric architecture will be discussed, with a focus on their value, performance and power efficiency.

Why It Matters: Memory-centric computing has the potential to enable energy-efficient, high-performance AI/ML applications. With the explosive growth of memory-intensive workloads like machine learning, video capture/playback and language translation, there is tremendous interest in preforming some compute near memory, by placing logic inside the DRAM/NVM main-memory die (aka near-memory compute), or even doing the compute within the memory array, embedded within the compute die (aka in-memory compute). In either case, the motivation is to reduce the significant data movement between main/embedded memory and compute units, as well as to reduce latency by preforming many operations in parallel, inside the array.

Apple Finds a New Way to Sell its Old (Still Expensive) Phones in Germany, a Trial is Still Coming

Apple will resume its sale of iPhones in its stores in Germany, selling its older models which come with chips from Qualcomm Inc., as the chipmaker gets one over the Cupertino-based tech giant. The world’s biggest supplier of mobile chips Qualcomm had brought a suit against Apple, where it claimed the smartphone maker was infringing on one of its patent that had to do with smartphone power management. The Battle in Munich A Munich court granted Qualcomm an injunction against Apple, banning the company from selling some iPhone models that used chips from rival chips maker Intel and parts supplier, Qorvo.

Intel Tech to Power Rakuten’s Revolutionary Fully Virtualized, End-to-End, Cloud-Native Mobile Network

5g city 2x1What’s New: Intel today announced it will provide technology to internet services leader Rakuten* for a new cloud-native network. It will be fully virtualized from radio access network (RAN) to core and will adopt an innovative 5G systems architecture from its launch. The network is significant as it will offer end-to-end automation for both network and services. It is being built to serve millions of subscribers in Japan.

“Rakuten, already a leader in e-commerce and fintech markets has now built a mobile network from the ground up that runs on Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and uses Intel® FPGAs for acceleration. This end-to-end cloud-native, automated network is innovative in its approach, and will allow Rakuten to rapidly scale mobile services on an agile, software-defined network.”
–Sandra Rivera, Intel senior vice president, Network Platforms Group

Why It Matters: This architecture uses Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® FPGA-based accelerators that allow Rakuten greater agility and flexibility, and the ability to scale outside Japan and to offer services at a lower cost to consumers. The launch of commercial services planned for October will leverage an innovative architecture that is set to disrupt not only the telecom industry landscape in Japan but also across the rest of the world.

What Already has been Tested: Initial end-to-end real-world tests of the new fully-virtualized network were conducted on Feb. 3 in suburban Tokyo. A roving test successfully used the data network to conduct voice and video calls over the Rakuten Viber mobile messaging platform. A review of data and performance metrics from the test phase will ensure a robust launch of the network.

What Rakuten is Saying: “Intel powers the backbone of our network — the high-performance Intel Xeon processors across data centers, core network and radio access network. We believe this full end-to-end virtualized network will help us to shift away from reliance on dedicated hardware and legacy infrastructure,” said Tareq Amin, chief technology officer, Rakuten Mobile Network. “This is a win for customers, too. We will be able to reach new cloud-like operational efficiency, and that passes on cost-savings to our customers as well.”

How It Works: The Rakuten network uses a virtualized radio access network running on Intel Xeon processor-based servers from Quanta*, support radio access technology from Altiostar* and core network software from Cisco*, providing a network that is fully virtualized from RAN to core.

Rakuten is also adopting multi-access edge computing (MEC) with Intel to extend its network, putting server-like devices closer to the network edge. Placement at the network edge means faster speeds and almost no latency in applications and rich media content. Rakuten is looking to deliver even more new communications and data-rich services with the network that will help its existing users of e-commerce, fintech, digital content and communications.

Arsenal FC, Liverpool FC and Manchester City Bring Immersive Experiences to Fans with Intel True View

fc true view 2x1

LONDON, Feb. 7, 2019 – Imagine watching a season-defining moment, then reliving it from any angle including from the perspective of your favourite player as they run up to take a penalty or make an improbable goal-line clearance.

In partnership with Arsenal FC*, Liverpool FC* and Manchester City*, Intel will deliver immersive experiences via Intel® True View at Emirates Stadium, Anfield and the Etihad Stadium. Now their fans worldwide can enjoy the biggest moments of the match from every angle, whether they’re watching the Rights Holders’ live broadcast and highlights or reliving the action post-match from their favourite clubs’ official website, mobile app or social media.

As three of the most recognisable and innovative football clubs in the world, Arsenal FC, Liverpool FC and Premier League* champions Manchester City will leverage Intel True View to capture every match element from every angle. Intel True View re-creates the action on the pitch and presents that from an ideal vantage point or player’s perspective, using Intel’s unmatched data-processing capability to deliver the experience to fans.

Beginning March 10, Intel’s leading volumetric technology will bring fans as close to the action on the pitch as the starting XI from the world’s most iconic football clubs. With dedicated supporters across the globe, football fans are passionate about the tactics as much as the goals scored, and Intel True View will highlight the immersive experiences unique to the style and skill of football.

The partnerships will introduce features that include:

  • Multi-angle views of a play: Intel Sports’ industry-leading volumetric video process creates thrilling 360-degree replays and highlight reels from every conceivable angle, using 38 5K ultra-high-definition cameras.
  • Laser wall: A virtual plane giving viewers a clear picture as to where players are positioned on the pitch.
  • Be the player capabilities: Intel True View freezes a moment in the match to let fans see the pitch from the eyes of a player. This also enables presenters and pundits to share a new level of insight into the tactics and decisions made by players to provide an entirely new perspective to fans.

Intersection of Sports and Technology: The sports industry is undergoing a period of significant change as consumer behavior is shifting, driving technology, leagues and brands to address the expectations of fans. In 2018, technology investments into sports reached nearly $1 billion, continuing to drive the intersection of sports and technology. With smart and connected tools, Intel is uniquely positioned to enable the sports industry to capture, analyse and respond to new levels of insight in real time and create amazing new experiences for fans.

How Intel True View Works: The process begins with volumetric video, the capture and rendering technique behind Intel True View. Using the volumetric capture method, footage is recorded from 38 5K ultra-high-definition cameras that includes height, width and depth of data to produce voxels (pixels with volume). After content is captured, a substantial amount of data is processed with servers powered by Intel® Core™ i7 and Intel® Xeon® processors. The software then re-creates all the viewpoints of a fully volumetric 3D person or object. That information renders a virtual environment in spectacular, multi-perspective 3D that enables users to experience a captured scene from any angle and perspective and can provide true 6 degrees of freedom.

James Carwana, vice president and general manager of Intel Sports, said: “Immersive media experiences continue to create more opportunities for sports teams and leagues to put the fan experience first. With the expansion of Intel True View into more stadiums with Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City, we have the chance to transform the experience for fans of one of the world’s top sports leagues with our leading and differentiated volumetric technology.”

Peter Silverstone, commercial director of Arsenal FC, said: “We are always looking to find new ways to bring our 780 million fans and followers around the world closer to the action and this partnership will give our fans a whole new view of the game. The technology effectively allows a supporter to step into the boots of players and see the game from their perspective.

“We have seen the impact this Intel technology has had in other sports leagues across the world and are excited that it will be installed at Emirates Stadium.

“At Arsenal we are committed to innovating and keeping at the forefront of developments on and off the pitch so it’s fitting that Emirates Stadium will be the first stadium to bring Intel’s immersive and transformational True View technology to the Premier League.”

Billy Hogan, managing director and chief commercial officer of Liverpool FC, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Intel to bring this advanced Intel True View technology to our supporters.

“Intel True View enables fans to immerse themselves even further into the game and has the power to add a new depth to match highlights, which can significantly improve the supporter experience. This technology has the potential to add a new dynamic to how people interact with the game and create different conversations with our fans around the world.

“We strive to utilise the latest technology to be at the forefront of the experience our supporters have, whether that’s on-screen or online, and with the help of our newest partner Intel, that is certainly set to continue.”

Damian Willoughby, senior vice president of Partnerships at City Football Group, said: “We’re very excited to integrate Intel True View at the Etihad Stadium and to announce our new partnership with a world-class brand like Intel. We love to be first, both on and off the pitch, so we are delighted to pioneer this game-changing technology at the Etihad Stadium. We are sure City fans, and football fans around the world, will love watching beautiful football from every angle.”
