Nokia & Intel launch joint research lab

Intel, whose processors power nearly 80 per cent of computers worldwide, said in a statement the centre would “employ about two dozen research and development professionals.”

The centre is hosted at the University of Oulu, which said the lab’s research activities had “started gradually in August.”

Intel said that the lab would work on developing “interfaces that are more similar to interactions in the real world,” with the aim of making the use of a mobile phone “more natural and intuitive, in the same way that modern games and movies are more immersive through the use of realistic 3-D graphics.”

The company added that another potential area of research “could look into technologies that allow displaying a 3-D hologram of the person you are talking to on the phone, a capability only found in science fiction movies today.”
