Intel is collaborating with Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) on a $4.125 million research program designed to increase their understanding of visual cloud capabilities given that the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G are going to be driving a whole lot more video experiences in the future.

Visual data is probably the single largest form of data in terms of the amount of bits allocated, and over half of all the mobile data in the world is visual data, mostly video but some images and audio. New types of experiences, such as augmented reality, virtual reality and panoramic video require new capabilities in terms of system architectures and data processing techniques…

In addition, as 5G rolls out over the next 10 years or so, it will increase interactive experiences. “5G has those great characteristics of low latency and high bandwidth in mobile environments and that will enable a whole new set of applications as well,” said Jim Blakley, general manager of Intel’s Visual Cloud Division…
