Intel Research Pittsburgh opened on the corner of Forbes Avenue and S. Craig Street in Oakland to study information storage and retrieval in the "proactive computing environments of the future," said David Tennenhouse, Intel's Vice President and Director of Research. Directed by Professor of Computer Science Mahadev Satyanarayanan, the facility will employ 20-25 Intel researchers, and an equal number of faculty, visitors, and interns. The Pittsburgh site is the third member of the Intel Research Network, joining other satellites in Seattle and Berkeley.
