Intel to invest $100m into US university research

Intel on Wednesday said it would devote $100 million in cash investments to US university research in the course of the next five years. These funds will be used to support a number of Intel Science and Technology Centers, with the first to be built at Stanford University. Its focus will be on next-generation visual computing.

Other centers will focus on different areas, such as mobility, security and embedded technology. The investment represents five times more funding from Intel Labs than the chipmaker's previous efforts.

At the Stanford lab, researchers will work with colleagues from seven other universities. These include the Universities of California at Davis, Berkeley and Irvine; the University of Washington; Cornell; Princeton; and Harvard. They will use the Sandy Bridge-era Core processor as their platform while working to develop the way images are captured or created before being displayed to the user.

Also new is how Intel will interact with the labs. They will now be jointly led by four Intel researchers at each along with the university's as opposed to have separate collaboration centers near research universities.
