Diane Bryant On The Future Of Big Data, IoT And The Connected World

Diane Bryant, Intel executive vice president and general manager of the Data Center Group, laid out the future of Intel and its role in a connected world Tuesday at the Bloomberg Technology Conference in San Francisco. She was interviewed by Bloomberg reporter Max Chafkin, who with Ian King, wrote last week’s Businessweek story, "How Intel Makes a Chip." The story illustrates the painstaking process for how Intel designs and manufactures complex processors. During the interview, Bryant spoke of Intel’s widening view as the PC market slows and the company turns its attention to new markets.

She also spoke of 5G and Intel’s role in the "cloudification" of that next-generation network. And she offered spirited support for the continuation of Moore’s Law and the spirit of Intel’s employees: "I would never bet against Moore’s Law because that’s betting that Intel employees stop inventing. And that would be a sad day." In response to an audience member’s question, Bryant said the Internet of Things will continue to grow more important to Intel.
