“Intel Labs Seattle open house: Invasion of the depth sensors”

TechFlash reports on the Intel Labs Seattle open house, held on November 1.

“I’ve never seen so many 3D depth-sensors in my life.

“That’s what struck me on Monday afternoon as I snooped around Intel Labs Seattle, near the University of Washington campus. …

“Intel Labs Seattle operates in cooperation with the University of Washington, with Intel researchers and UW students working closely together on projects that explore the potential for ‘context-aware, sensor driven systems.’  Dieter Fox, an associate professor in the UW Department of Computer Science & Engineering, is the latest member of the UW faculty to serve a three-year term as director of the Intel lab.

“Intel has two other similar labs in the United States, at UC Berkeley and Carnegie Mellon University.  The labs are focused on research, not product development, but the idea is to show what could be possible in future generations of shipping technology.”
