Intel Corporation and Boston Consulting Group (BCG) announced a strategic collaboration to enable generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) using end-to-end Intel AI hardware and software. The GenAI solution delivers fully custom and proprietary solutions to enterprise clients while keeping private data in the isolation of their trusted environments.
BCG leveraged Intel’s AI supercomputer powered by Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and AI-optimized Habana® Gaudi® hardware accelerators, as well as production-ready hybrid cloud-scale software. The Intel system powers BCG’s GenAI model that delivers insights based on over 50 years’ worth of highly confidential and proprietary data. In addition, all AI training and inferencing was completed within BCG’s security perimeter.
“Generative AI requires a truly democratized approach that enables more secure and scalable choice so enterprises can safely benefit from the technology,” said Sandra Rivera, executive vice president and general manager of the Data Center and AI Group at Intel. “Our collaboration with BCG allows us to help customers build generative AI applications that require technology optimized across the entire stack completely inside their chosen security perimeter.”
Innoviz Technologies, a technology leader of high-performance, solid-state LiDAR sensors and perception software, announced that it is collaborating with Exwayz, a Parisian deep-tech company developing real-time 3D LiDAR processing software to demonstrate new LiDAR-based perception solutions for various non-automotive applications.

What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.
