Intel AI Research is pushing the limits of artificial intelligence and computing at every level, from atomic physics to data-center orchestration. We make big bets and take a systems view of AI: our research spans foundational work in machine learning algorithms and computer architecture to applied research in computer vision, autonomous driving, and distributed learning systems.
