Intel Labs Moving Mountains With Neuromorphic Computing And Photonics Technologies

While the industry loves to combine “R&D” and we see this in every tech company’s P&L, research and development are very different. Research is high risk, market making investments and discoveries that are unattached to products. Development is applying that research and other’s IP to create an end product or services.
