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.

I imagine this happening in a dimly-lit, smoke-filled conference room somewhere on the Intel campus...
Executive #1: So, this "internet" thing seems to have some staying power...might be the real deal.
Exec. #2: It's a load of crap. Stupid kids. Don't worry...we'll all be back to running off floppies any day now.
Exec #3: No, I think he's right...I think this fad is actually becoming solid.
Exec. #1: Right, so I was thinking we should actually pay attention to devices that are connected to this "internet." Maybe, you know, create a division for "Internet-Connected Devices."
Exec. #2: F%ck that.
Exec. #3: Yeah, sure...give the kids what they want.
Exec. #1: OK, it's official then. <pushes button on intercom> Sally, get on the Google and order us up a big batch of internet. Have it shipped to the Poughkeepsie office.
Sally: Right away sir...
Exec #1: Oh! And make sure it has the bigger gee bees!
