Have you nerds heard? The cloud is the word, and Intel's ready to put its bank account where the industry's buzzing mouth is. Investing $30 million over a span of five years, the company has partnered with Carnegie Mellon University to open two new Intel Science and Technology Centers. The academic research labs will laser in on cloud and embedded computing research, providing open source innovations that tackle mass data analytics, real-time information service distribution and refinements to a future, cloud-connected lifestyle. Curious as to what this brain collective has up its sleeves? Imagine wearing a pair of Intel-powered glasses that overlays data linked to the people and objects you see. Not the Minority Report type? Alright, then consider its proposed intelligent car of the future, capable of recommending "routing, retail, dining, and entertainment" options tailored to passenger profiles and real-world conditions. Whether you're ready or not, this is the future folks -- one big, passive scoop of computer-generated coddling. Hit the break for the full PR, and Peter Griffin's take on our sponsored tomorrow.
