Brian Krzanich – CEO, Intel Corp
Dion Weisler – EVP, Printing and Personal Systems, HP
Colin Angle – CEO, iRobot
Jan Stumpf – CEO, Ascending Technologies
Colin Baden – CEO, Oakley
Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Consumer Electronics Association, Gary Shapiro.
Gary Shapiro – President and CEO, CEA
Good afternoon. Wow! What you just saw was a great example of the amazing experiences that Intel has been bringing to consumer technology over the years. No company has done more to shape modern computing. From the most powerful supercomputers in the world to intelligent wearable devices, Intel makes modern technology possible.
Last year, when Brian Krzanich, who is here, he did more than deliver the kickoff keynote address. He introduced what would become the hallmarks of consumer technology in 2014. So when we started thinking about CES 2015, we knew that the keynote stage would be incomplete without having Intel back.
Not only does Intel design and manufacture some of the world’s most sophisticated technology and a vision of what is coming next and how it will change our everyday lives. When Intel comes to CES, not only do they bring great products, they bring the defining ideas for the whole industry.
So ladies and gentlemen, please join me in welcoming back to the keynote stage, the Chief Executive of Intel, Brian Krzanich.
Brian Krzanich – CEO, Intel Corp
Thank you everybody. I am really excited to be here for my second year in a row. CES is the place we all come to talk about technology today. But almost more importantly, how it will shape the future of tomorrow.
Tonight, I am going to show you some amazing experiences now possible because of technology Intel is bringing to life. We’re at the beginning of something big, something new and something exciting. I feel that 2015 is truly a unique year. It’s the beginning of the next technology consumer wave.
The last time we’ve seen a wave of change this big was exactly 20 years ago today.
[Video Presentation: The year is 1995. A Revolution – consumer computing is about to unfold. Intel launches the Pentium Pro Processor, powering a new generation of consumer applications. With the first commercial browsers, consumers discover the power of the worldwide web. The first search engines appeared, making it easy to explore the web. The era of e-commerce is born. Intel introduces USB, creating an industry standard for connecting devices and sharing files.
Together these technologies launched the first web of consumer computing that enabled richer experiences, unleashed mobility, expanded possibilities, brought us closer together and enriched our lives.
Today, we stand on the threshold of the next revolution, made possible by innovations that will soon deliver amazing experiences that are even more personal, connected and intelligent. Welcome to 2015 experience – amazing. ]
1995 was a watershed moment in consumer technology. But 2015 will be another important turning point. We’re going from a two-dimensional world to a three-dimensional world. This additional dimension will change how we experience computing.
What we’re going to show you tonight are the three forces shaping this next technology wave. The first of those forces is what we call computing unleashed. Until now we’ve been limited to two dimensions with a keyboard and a mouse and a flat screen that becomes unwired three dimensions. Intelligence everywhere, when everything can become smart and connected. And then lastly, the wearable revolution, the next phase in mobile computing, when mobile computing truly becomes personal.
We’re going to show you demos again tonight that haven’t been shown anywhere else, straight out of the labs and every one of them will be live.
So let’s talk about the first force. Up until now, computing has been defined by the interaction with the screen, a mouse and a keyboard and you are limited to just really flat surfaces that you could, at most, adjust change interact. But this is about to change.
We’re going to experience computing unleashed where computing gains a new dimension, from that two-dimensional world to a three-dimensional world. Computers are gaining senses. They’re going to be able to see and hear and that will result in their ability to understand. They’re becoming wire free, giving new meaning to portable and mobile.
So I’d like to show you some of that technology here tonight. Perhaps you’ve heard or seen RealSense technology. It understands us much more naturally. You saw it in the preshow event, displaying the dancers and the musicians.
RealSense can be extended into every facet of our lives. Unlike most cameras, RealSense can see and understand depth. Let’s start with something basic. How we edit the typical photos that we take every day and how RealSense can truly change this experience.
