Intel is an industry leader, creating world-changing technology that enables global progress and enriches lives.

By embedding intelligence in the cloud, network, edge and every kind of computing device, we unleash the potential of data to transform business and society for the better.

The smart city of tomorrow will have to reinvent itself to host major events, especially major sporting events. More than ever, it is necessary to consider climate and environmental issues at all levels. The major events of the future will have to choose decarbonation and carbon compensation. But to do something wonderful, we will have to be creative, putting the exceptional at the service of everyday life.


How to make major sporting events smarter and more sustainable, via better energy management?

Since the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games, Intel has been working across the Olympic Movement and with other Olympic partners to integrate technology into many facets of the Olympic ecosystem.

Intel is integrating technology and innovation around 5G technology, immersive media, artificial intelligence, drones and esports competitions as well as other silicon solutions to enhance the Olympic Games experience.

Alongside its work with partners and customers, Intel is looking to source innovations that could change the face of major events in terms of sustainability and energy management, in conjunction with its own products, and solutions.
