Intel has launched the first of a new breed of Intel Science and Technology Centers (ISTCs).
ISTCs are Intel-funded, jointly-led research collaborations between Intel and the U.S. academic community. Each ISTC will be centered at a leading U.S. university and will focus on a specific technology area or discipline, bringing together a community of top researchers from across academia.
The ISTC in Visual Computing is centered at Stanford and brings together thought leaders from Stanford, the University of Washington, UC Berkeley, Cornell, Princeton, Harvard, UC Davis, UC Irvine and Intel to collaboratively advance the state-of-the-art in visual computing.
