Following Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang's recent visit to Taiwan, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger will visit the country for the second time in six months, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Gelsinger will speak at the "Intel Innovation Taipei 2023 Technology Forum" on November 7, where he will share insights into future technological advancements, the sources said.

Several Intel executives will also speak at the forum about a variety of product technologies and development tools aimed at achieving "AI ubiquity" and promoting AI in client, edge, network, and cloud device applications, as well as the outcomes of collaboration with the global technology industry chain, the sources indicated.

It is worth mentioning that Gelsinger's next trip to Taiwan will be his second, similar to Huang's second trip to the country in the previous six months, the sources said. Gelsinger delivered the keynote lecture at the Intel Vision conference in Taipei in May, addressing customers and supply chains.

Gelsinger is said to have only met with important partners during his subsequent trip to Taiwan due to the demanding schedule, according to the sources.

In other news, Intel disclosed on October 24 plans to advance its semiconductor technology development facilities at the Gordon Moore Park at Ronler Acres in Hillsboro, Oregon. The campus is Intel's innovation hub in the US for leading-edge semiconductor research, technology development, and manufacturing. This project is made possible by the state of Oregon, the city of Hillsboro, and Washington County, as well as the US CHIPS and Science Act.

Intel's Oregon Investments are part of the company's plans to invest more than US$100 billion in the US over five years, CEO Pat Gelsinger said at September's Intel Innovation event in San Jose.
