Intel Will Host an Open House and Discussions Highlighting Scientific Pursuits at their New Pittsburgh-Based Laboratory

Intel Corp. will host an event on the Carnegie Mellon campus on Wednesday, Feb. 20, to officially open its new Pittsburgh-based laboratory—Intel Research Pittsburgh—located at the corner of Forbes Avenue and Craig Street in Oakland. The focus of the facility is development of software for data storage.

At a 10 a.m. discussion in the Singleton Room of Roberts Engineering Hall, David Tennenhouse, Intel's vice president Corporate Technology Group, and director of research, will describe the vision and goals of the Intel Research Network. Carnegie Mellon President Jared Cohon will talk about the laboratory from the university perspective and Mahadev Satyanarayanan, founding director of Intel Research Pittsburgh, will discuss the research projects being initiated at the lab.

In the afternoon, Intel will host an open house where faculty, students and staff can meet the researchers and learn more about their work. David Tennenhouse and the Intel team will be available at Intel Research Pittsburgh from 3-5 p.m.

The Intel Research Network is currently comprised of three laboratories. In addition to the Pittsburgh facility, there is one in Seattle and another in Berkeley, Calif. Each lab provides facilities for 20-25 Intel scientists and student interns, plus a like number of faculty and visitors from the larger research community. According to Intel, the laboratories provide an environment where academic and industry researchers can collaborate on the basic architectural concepts for future technologies.

Intel also will dedicate the Internet Exchange Architecture (IXA) Laboratory, 1202 Hamerschlag Hall, site of a capstone course for senior students, which uses one of Intel's networking platforms. Students who have taken the course in network architecture will be on hand to discuss their work and explain some of the projects they've been able to develop using the Intel platform. The lab is an example of Intel's program to donate material to universities that help to train students for problems they're likely to experience in the corporate world.

Dedication of the IXA Laboratory will take place at 1 p.m.
