The CEO of Intel, Brian Krzanich hosted a Reddit AMA today, answering a flurry of questions from fans and critics alike.
The CEO of Intel, Brian Krzanich hosted a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) just a few hours ago to answer questions regarding the company’s future plans and ideas for the wearable segment.
While the CEO wasn’t descriptive on what’s to come from Intel in terms of wearables, he did mention that the company has a few planned in the coming months. He has made it clear on several occasions in the past that the company was working on multiple devices, so this doesn’t come as a surprise. He also spoke about the use of graphene for Intel’s semiconductors which would help reduce leakage and increase overall stability.
The CEO also spoke about how the company failed to make inroads in the mobile and tablet segment by leaving things too late. He quoted Microsoft’s newly appointed CEO, Satya Nadella, saying that the industry doesn’t respect tradition, but innovation.
However, one of the most popular questions on the thread went unanswered. A user asked for the Intel CEO’s response on recent allegations of Intel processors being insecure with the NSA reportedly planting permanent “backdoor” access to its chipsets. This is certainly one of the most controversial allegations leveled against Intel at the moment, so it made sense for Intel to clear the air a bit and give a word of reassurance to the public.
Intel is now expected to make a big move onto the mobile segment with its new range of Bay Trail mobile chipsets meant for Android and Windows tablets alike. You can find the entire list of questions and Krzanich’s answers from the Reddit thread below.
