Apple to open research lab
Apple plans to Carnegie Mellon University's campus in Oakland, joining Intel's existing labs at the same site, according to a report in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. The announcement comes only a few months after the companies announced that Apple will transition Macs to Intel chips over the next two years. "Apple plans to open a research facility at CMU's Collaborative Innovation Center.... The Apple facility combined with other tenants at the center is expected to create at least 200 new jobs. The Apple facility will share the top floor of the four-story building with Intel's existing Intel Research Pittsburgh unit, a research laboratory that employs 17 people.... Plans are for researchers from Apple and Intel in the new building to discuss the possibility of cooperating or working on joint projects."
