Internet of Things Solutions Group answers directly to Intel's CEO

Intel has announced that it has set up a new business division with the goal of being at the forefront of the next generation of internet-connected devices. Intel’s latest push is to get just about everything you can think of connected to the internet from air-conditioning systems to bathroom scales and appliances.

The new business division, which is headed by Doug Davis, is called the Internet of Things Solutions Group and will report to CEO Brian Krzanich. The Internet of Things Solutions Group will operate within Intel’s Wind River subsidiary, which sells software aimed at commercial and industrial devices.

"Krzanich is saying, 'I want a higher level of focus on this to help us grow it and put the level of attention on it that it deserves," Davis remarked. "We're pulling together a couple of pieces that are already doing well and we want to accelerate those efforts."

Krzanich previously announced that Intel would be working on a new line of small low-power microchips for wearable devices such as smartwatches and activity tracking bracelets. Intel is also seeking to develop a chip can be ingested by humans for biomedical uses.

Don't worry, your bluetooth enabled belt buckle will report back to your automated food preparation device reducing your caloric intake long before your scale finds out about it.

Hey, buckle, that's not a FUPA making my pants tight, it's the hot lunch lady. Back off, buckle!

If your buckle couldn't tell the difference then how could they know what ads to direct toward you?

That's easy... They are going to direct you to the ads for the advertisement companies that pay them the most money.
