Intel's most senior Israeli executive, Sagi Ben Moshe, is leaving the company. According to a report on website CRN, the semiconductor giant is shutting down its RealSense computer vision division, headed by Ben Moshe, who also serves as general manager of Intel’s Emerging Growth and Incubation group, to focus on its core businesses. RealSense was focused on the development of high-tech cameras and sensors that were built for robotics, digital signage, and 3D scanning. Most of the division's employees are based out of California, but there are also several dozen located in Israel. Intel doesn't plan on firing any of the employees and some of them have already been offered alternative positions. Intel announced earlier this year that it plans on recruiting an additional 1,000 employees in Israel.
