Auriga Attends Intel Experience Day 2019

Intel Experience Day 2019, organized by Intel, one of the major innovative hardware and technology corporations worldwide, took place in Moscow at the end of October. Intel and partner companies presented the latest Intel hardware and software product implementations advancing IoT, AI, computer vision, machine learning, object recognition, and more. Many speakers shared their ideas and insights on trending industrial innovations like cloud computing, Big Data, and analytics, including Al Diaz, Intel’s Vice President, Natalya Galyan, Intel’s Regional Director for Russia, and Marina Alekseeva, CEO of R&D of Intel in Russia.

Intel Experience Day 2019 attracted many IT market players who use Intel solutions in their work daily, and Auriga experts were among them. Several years ago, Auriga became a pioneer user of the Intel Multi-OS Engine tool to develop an innovative iPad application for patient monitoring. Later, we became active users of the Intel XDK cross-platform IDE to quickly create native applications for various platforms. We certainly could not miss the Intel conference, and although the three report sessions—Hard, Soft, and Fusion—were run in parallel, our experts managed to visit all of them. Here’s what they had to say about the sessions.

FUSION: Success Stories

The FUSION session featured technological innovations of the leading Russian technology companies. Sberbank, Yandex, Mail.Ru Group, MTS, VK, CROC, and others presented their case studies in cloud computing, Big Data, IoT, and AI. Sberbank, for example, demonstrated a logistic robot for parcel delivery, Yandex presented Yandex.Cloud, and CROC talked about VR use in manufacturing.

HARD: Advanced Intel Hardware

The HARD session presented the new Intel hardware, including the 10th Gen Intel® Core™ architecture and new high-performance SSDs. Intel experts introduced SSDs for both client solutions and the server segment. Intel® AMT, a hardware and firmware technology for remote out-of-band computer management, and Intel® vPro™, a platform for building managed IT environments for business, were demonstrated. We enjoyed the review of Intel solutions for cloud/telecom and success stories on using the Intel cloud infrastructure for remote testing.

SOFT: New Software Development Horizons

At the SOFT session, Intel presented tools for efficient software development in the cloud, solutions for high-performance simulation tasks, and software products for AI and robotics. In particular, Intel® Advisor enables 100% CPU usage, and OpenVINO™ helps engineers and analysts accelerate the development of high-performance computer vision and deep learning solutions for video systems.

Maxim Krylov, Project Manager at Auriga, added,

At one of the most inspiring presentations, Intel introduced oneAPI, a project to deliver a set of developer tools that provide a unified programming model and simplify workload development across diverse architectures. These software solutions allow maximum equipment performance to be achieved, and our next step in using Intel products is to participate in the beta use of oneAPI in a real project for one of our customers.
