Global computer chip giant Intel Corporation is working on reducing cost of computers so that it can be made more accessible, a top company official said.

Ajay Bhatt, fellow at Intel Corporation and co-inventor of USB told PTI, “about one billion out of a total of a six billion people across the world have been using computers. Now we are targeting the remaining 5 billion and want to provide computers to them at a lower cost and we have been making efforts in that direction.”

Bhatt who holds nine US patents and became a celebrity after an ad campaign launched by the company is an alumni of the Maharaja Sayajirao University here and was in the city for a lecture.

Bhatt also informed that Intel has been engaged in developing Intel Management Technology for addressing the problem of virus attacks on computers.
