Intel Launches AI PC Acceleration Program To Enable AI on 100 Million PCs through 2025
  • Intel’s AI PC Acceleration Program will enable artificial intelligence (AI) on more than 100 million PCs through 2025, propelled by the upcoming launch of Intel® Core™ Ultra processors on Dec. 14.
  • Program includes Adobe, Audacity, BlackMagic, BufferZone, CyberLink, DeepRender, Fortemedia, MAGIX, Rewind AI, Skylum, Topaz, VideoCom, Webex, Wondershare Filmora, XSplit and Zoom.
In an industry's first, Intel, on Thursday, launched the AI PC Acceleration Program, a global innovation initiative designed to accelerate the pace of AI development across the PC industry.

The program aims to connect independent hardware vendors (IHVs) and independent software vendors (ISVs) with Intel resources that include AI toolchains, co-engineering, hardware, design resources, technical expertise and co-marketing opportunities. These resources will help the ecosystem take full advantage of Intel Core Ultra processor technologies and corresponding hardware to maximize AI and machine learning (ML) application performance, accelerate new use cases and connect the wider PC industry to the solutions emerging in the AI PC ecosystem.

Intel provides a range of hardware and software tools to help developers. In addition to its AI-optimized processors, Intel offer software toolkits powered by oneAPI and OpenVINO, Intel-based data science workstations, developer training courses, and other valuable learning resources.

The Age of the AI PC

Arrival of the AI PC represents an inflection point in the PC industry – an age marked by increasing availability of software enhanced by AI and ML algorithms. These applications empower people to create art, make music, synthesize knowledge and work smarter. Intel is at the forefront of this transition with robust architectures for the central processing unit (CPU), graphics processing unit (GPU) and neural processing unit (NPU) to optimize the performance and power efficiency of AI software.

Michelle Johnston Holthaus, executive vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group at Intel, said, "Intel recognizes that software leadership is key to the AI PC experience, and we’re uniquely positioned to lead the industry with an open ecosystem approach. With a long history in AI development and a deep network of ISV engineering relationships, Intel will take an active role in fostering connections and innovations that propel new use cases and experiences on the PC. "

The AI PC Acceleration program will provide access to Intel’s deep bench of engineering talent for targeted software optimizations and tuning based on ISV needs, core development tools and software developer kits like OpenVINO™, and go-to-market opportunities.

Intel said that it is working with more than 100 ISVs on more than 300 AI-accelerated features – including Adobe, Audacity, BlackMagic, BufferZone, CyberLink, DeepRender, Fortemedia, MAGIX, Rewind AI, Skylum, Topaz, VideoCom, Webex, Wondershare Filmora, XSplit and Zoom. With these 100 ISVs as partners, Intel will help enhance PC experiences across audio effects, content creation, gaming, security, streaming, video collaboration and more.

The AI PC Acceleration program is an extension of Intel Partner Alliance’s AI Accelerator Initiative, which provides a programmatic engagement approach for more than 1,000 ISV partners to build, optimize and deploy AI solutions from the edge through the cloud.
