We also announced today that Intel Labs will open-source code for a different ray tracing project that targets offline, photorealistic rendering for uses such as design and digital effects in film. This code can provide up to a 2x speed boost for such professional applications and will also be available later this month.
In other parts of the show floor we showed an array of interesting projects: a bike powered netbook for developing economies, a “magic mirror” that allows you to see your virtual body and change it based on real human body scans, a programming system designed for exa-scale supercomputers of the future, human perception technologies, and more. Many of these projects include academic, industry and government collaborations of the type Justin emphasized in his opening address.
Looking around the event I was amazed at the diversity of projects, the number of leading minds in the room, and the level of interest in the research. And, as part of the R@I planning team I know that the ~35 demonstration on the floor represent only a fraction of the projects at Intel Labs. From here, the future looks bright.
