Intel CEO: Massive Stock Dump Before Security Flaw Disclosed

The remainder of the fixes would be issued by the end of January.

Intel added on Monday that about two million vehicles from auto makers BMW, Nissan and Volkswagen will use technology from Mobileye to build high-definition maps throughout 2018. While he didn't address the shakeup in Monday's keynote, Krzanich began his remarks by addressing the security issue head-on. They included an instrument-free musical performance by an "algorithm-and-blues" band, an autonomous driving demonstration by Intel partner Mobileye, a flight demonstration of the electric Volocopter, and a Guinness record-breaking show of 100 drones operating without Global Positioning System control.

Krzanich unveiled Intel's first autonomous vehicle in its 100-car test fleet, the company said in a statement.

Similar announcements came from Levi & Korsinky, Block & Leviton and Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro, with the firms also pointing to reports that Intel chief executive Brian Krzanich sold Intel stock in November months after the company was informed of the defect by Google.

Krzanich began his keynote addressing a security glitch recently discovered in nearly every Intel processor chip made in the last decade.

Intel also said that it would join forces with SAIC and NavInfo, a digital mapping company, to extend the crowdsourced map building that is necessary to roll out self-driving vehicles to China. Such a leak could potentially expose stored passwords and other sensitive data, including personal photos, emails and instant messages.

So Krzanich comes to CES every year to tout the Intel technology that enables gee-whiz gadgets.

It also asks for whistleblowers or others with information about Mr. Krzanich's stock sales are also encouraged to get in touch. Intel also wants a future where hyper-reality is a real thing. But how this is changing technology is essentially with the way the data is used.

Looking towards the future of computing, Krzanich noted Intel's research into neuromorphic computing, a new type of computing architecture that mimics the way brains observe, learn and understand. Krzanich called it a major breakthrough and the next step to "quantum supremacy".

Intel Corporation is making fast progress scaling superconducting quantum computing test chips to higher qubit counts - from 7, to 17 and now 49 qubits (left to right).

Soon we will offer autonomous air taxi flights as a service in cities across the world revolutionizing the way we all experience urban mobility today.

As audiences move from flat screens to immersive experiences involving VR, Gianopulos said Paramount will be able to create content that's closer to reality than has ever been possible before by placing audiences inside the movie itself.
