World’s largest chip maker Intel Corporation has unveiled a new sensing platform for enabling mobile-based healthcare delivery to masses.
“Our new chip, combining hardware, mobility, analytics and cloud-based technology enables doctors and hospitals to provide affordable personal healthcare for masses,” the US-based company’s Indian subsidiary said in a statement.
The new sensing platform, showcased at the CeBIT India IT event here last week, has been designed to meet the specific consumer needs of India and other emerging markets and can also be used to create applications for different consumer segments.
The research and development centre of the US-based company’s Indian subsidiary in this tech hub has contributed in developing the new platform.
“We are harnessing the power of chip technology to create a paradigm shift in the way people, businesses and government agencies work with a host of smart and connected devices,” Intel India president Kumud Srinivasan said on the occasion.
Underlying the significance of computing in the digital world to transform businesses and enrich lives of people, Srinivasan said as an affordable solution, the new platform had become more immersive, perceptive and social to enhance user experience and productivity.
“Our local and frugal innovations will help in building enabling technologies for the government’s Digital India plans spanning infrastructure, e-governance, utilities, literacy and empowerment of citizens,” Srinivasan pointed out.
The company also displayed at the expo its latest technology prowess in mobility, data center, Internet of Things (IoT) and innovation.
“Technology usage in India is catching up and entering new areas, marked by acceleration in IP (intellectual property) creation and digital literacy to serve local needs, mobile penetration and social entrepreneurship,” the statement added.
