Intel has been outlining its vision of a future in which technology will be embedded into the fabric of society to such an extent that we won't even notice it.
Pat Gelsinger used his keynote to highlight the ever-growing trend towards embedded and mobile technology, suggesting that the most powerful technologies are those that 'disappear'.
Intel has also outlined its roadmap for solid state drives, promising 1.8in and 2.5in form factor devices for the laptop and desktop sectors within a month.
Chairman Craig Barrett, meanwhile, has warned that technology is a 'tool not a panacea', and that we should not develop technology merely for technology's sake.
He also warned that some countries are failing to spur the younger generation into technological education and innovation.
