英特尔CEO Bob Swan星期一早上祝贺总统当选人拜登和当选副总统卡马拉·哈里斯,并敦促该国领导人进入制造业和数字基础设施投资以及技术相关的措施。

Swan(如图)在周一发给拜登的公开信中表示,他知道拜登在“动荡和破坏性的2020年”后将“致力于团结我们的国家”,以克服COVID-19,种族冲突,日趋严重的挑战。技能差距和全球竞争加剧。


他将2020年的分裂与1968年的分裂相提并论,当时越南经历了一场越战和种族分化,该国经历了经济衰退,并且发生了大规模抗议活动,他说这形成了新政治格局。他指出,在动荡时期,Robert Noyce和Gordon Moore共同创立了英特尔,而英特尔催生了许多未来技术。

Swan接着说,英特尔有能力再次成为唯一的“美国领先的半导体制造商,公司在美国拥有50000多名员工,并在俄勒冈州,亚利桑那州,德克萨斯州,新墨西哥州和加利福尼亚州设有创新中心”。

他说:“我们再次准备支持下一代技术进步。”

斯旺敦促拜登和他的新任政府在四个方面进行政策努力:投资技术解决与COVID相关的问题,增加美国制造业,投资数字基础设施以及培养21世纪的劳动力。

谈到技术对解决冠状病毒大流行带来的挑战的影响时,Swan表示,人工智能,高性能计算和边缘到云计算是“政府收集和分析数据,诊断,治疗和疫苗开发的关键组成部分。他还敦促拜登增加对宽带连接的投资,特别是对服务不足的社区和有色社区的投资。

谈到拜登振兴美国制造业的“全美制造”计划时,斯旺说,这是一个对美国创新和领导地位至关重要的领域。他敦促在拜登(Biden)领导下的联邦政府专门投资于国内半导体产业,由于成本上升和外国政府对海外制造商的补贴,该产业目前处于“重大劣势”。他指出,美国仅占全球制造业产能的12%,而亚洲却占80%以上。

斯旺说:“一项国家制造战略,包括美国政府对国内半导体产业的投资,对于确保美国公司在公平竞争环境中竞争并引领下一代创新技术至关重要。”

首席执行官表示,即将上任的拜登政府应增加对数字基础设施的投资,包括使城市和能源系统更智能,更高效。他说,特别是5G网络将为各行各业的企业提高效率,并实现更多的美国创新。他补充说,这类基础设施升级也将刺激未来的技术发展。

Swan认为,与这一需求相关的当务之急是通过进一步投资STEM计划,支持移民计划并让妇女和代表性不足的少数民族享有平等机会来解决美国劳动力的技术技能缺口。

斯旺在信中说:“英特尔在过去52年中一直与总统府密切合作,制定有助于美国引领技术创新的政策。” “我期待着在共同的使命中共同努力,以解决我们国家今天为平等和繁荣的未来做准备时面临的许多挑战。”

总部位于明尼苏达州伯恩斯维尔的英特尔高性能计算系统制造商合作伙伴Nor-Tech的工程副总裁Dominic Daninger说,斯旺就联邦政府在拜登的领导下需要关注的重点提出了“出色的观点”。

Daninger说,由于许多人因大流行而失业,因此支持技术职业教育计划至关重要。

他说:“整个COVID事情对非技术人员的打击更大。”

丹宁格说,尽管投资国内制造业将带来更广泛的利益,包括增加就业机会,但从国家安全的角度来看,这一点尤为重要。

他说:“将我们的所有半导体工厂都设在其他国家实在太危险了。” “这是组建军队的危险方法,因为军队完全依赖外国资源。”

关于即将上任的拜登政府将对更广泛的科技行业产生什么样的影响,丹宁格说,拜登表示“更加愿意关注科学和技术。” 但是,尽管他认为拜登可以带来积极的影响,但丹宁格最终还是采取了观望的态度。

丹宁格说:“他给我留下的印象是总统,他将更多地依赖于他的团队,所以这在很大程度上取决于他对团队的投入。

Bob Swan: Open Letter to President-elect Biden


The Honorable Joseph R. Biden Jr.
President-elect of the United States

Dear Mr. President-elect,


Congratulations on your election as our 46th president. I also want to congratulate Vice President-elect Kamala Harris for her historic achievement and recognize the role your administration will play in inspiring our next generation of leaders.


2020 has been a particularly disruptive year for the American people. And we know you are focused on uniting our nation to overcome the challenges posed by COVID-19, racial strife, a growing skills gap and increasing global competition


In 1968, America was in a similar place. We were a nation divided over the Vietnam War, divided by race, undergoing a recession and experiencing mass protests shaping the political landscape. In this environment of change and upheaval, Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore came together and founded Intel, starting a silicon revolution that gave rise to many future technologies. Today, Intel is the only U.S.-based manufacturer of leading-edge semiconductors, with more than 50,000 employees across the country and innovation hubs in Oregon, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico and California. We again stand at the ready to support the next generation of technological advancements.


As the leader of a company driven by our purpose to create world-changing technologies that enrich the lives of every person on Earth, I am grateful for your recognition of the role technology plays in solving our nation’s largest societal challenges. As you begin to further develop your policy agenda, I urge you to focus on the following areas:


Investing in Technology to Solve the Challenges Posed by COVID


Artificial intelligence, high performance computing and edge-to-cloud computing are critical components in government collection and analysis of data, diagnostics, treatment and vaccine development. Intel technology has helped accelerate access to quality data to deliver remote care and protect medical professionals from exposure to infection. As you know, this pandemic has widely affected education, work and other aspects of our daily lives. It is crucial to expand investments in broadband connectivity, particularly to lessen the impact of COVID on the underserved and in communities of color.


Increasing U.S. Manufacturing


Your planned investment in American-made goods is critical to U.S. innovation and technology leadership. According to the Semiconductor Industry Association, the U.S. accounts for just 12% of global semiconductor production capacity, with more than 80% taking place in Asia. Rising costs and foreign government subsidies to national champions are a significant disadvantage for U.S. semiconductor companies that make substantial capital investments domestically. A national manufacturing strategy, including investment by the U.S. government in the domestic semiconductor industry, is critical to ensure American companies compete on a level playing field and lead the next generation of innovative technology.


Investing in Digital Infrastructure


Smart infrastructure spending will help address pressing economic and climate change needs. This will include technology designed to make cities and energy systems smarter and more efficient. Widespread deployment of advanced 5G telecommunications networks will fuel efficiencies for businesses in all industries and enable more U.S. innovation. Upgrades to our infrastructure must not only handle the technology of today but spur domestic development of the technologies of tomorrow.


Developing a 21st Century Workforce


In the U.S., Intel hired more than 4,000 people this year, and it still has 800 positions to fill. We produce the most complex technology on the planet and need access to the best talent available. We are designing STEM curricula to help feed the workforce pipeline and make next-generation training and skills more accessible. This year, we partnered with Maricopa County Community College District in Arizona to launch the first Intel-designed artificial intelligence associate degree program in the United States.


While we work to build a greater pipeline of U.S. high-tech workers, American universities and companies provide opportunities to smart, hard-working people from all over the world. They return the favor many times over with their contributions to this country and our technology leadership. The U.S. has welcomed global talent for decades and should continue to support immigration programs needed by Intel and other high-tech companies to operate in the U.S.


At Intel, we believe the current and future workforces need to reflect the makeup of this nation. We also share your commitment to make racial equity a top priority. We set ambitious goals for Intel’s next decade. We aim to double the number of women and underrepresented minorities in senior leadership at Intel, and to collaborate within our industry to create and implement a Global Inclusion Index to track industry progress in areas such as greater levels of women and minorities in senior and technical positions, accessible technology and equal pay.


Intel has enjoyed working closely with presidential administrations over the past 52 years on policies that help the United States lead the world in technological innovation. I look forward to working together in a shared mission to tackle the many challenges facing our nation today as we prepare for an equitable and prosperous future.


Sincerely,
Bob Swan
CEO, Intel Corporation
