Welcome to this community. You've been whitelisted now. Moving this thread to OpenCL forum.
In general, a single OpenCL platform is recognize against each vendor implementation (say AMD, Intel etc) installed on the system. Please share the clinfo output and code snippet used for the above testing. Please also mention about the OS and driver (if any).
Here one point to note. Only CPU runtime comes with the APP SDK package so, without proper driver support, clinfo reports CPU devices only. You need to install compatible driver in order to work with AMD GPUs (Download Drivers). Btw, AMD OpenCL platform does not recognize any Intel GPUs.
First of all, how can I show my username instead of my real name? I thought that setting my account properties to hide my real name was enough, but apparently it is not so.
As for my issue, if you want C code you'll have to give me a bit of time. Looking at the C# code I'm dealing with, however, it seems it just makes two clGetPlatformIDs() calls, one to get the number of entries and one to get the actual data, and then a bunch of clGetPlatformInfo() calls (again, one to get the size of the result and another to get the actual result), one for each attribute: vendor, name, extensions and so on.
You can find the relevant code on https://github.com/fogbank/NOpenCL/blob/master/NOpenCL/UnsafeNativeMethods.Platforms.cs
I'm attaching the result of clinfo. As you can see, there's an Intel platform which has two devices, the CPU and the integrated GPU (I was wrong, it does get identified), and two identical AMD platforms which have two devices, the GPU and the "GenuineIntel" CPU.
The test code I've run, based on a simple time benchmark, seem to indicate that the CPU, the Intel GPU and the Radeon do indeed run their kernels as they should, there seem to be no mixups or anything, the results I get are consistent with that. So, for now, there are no real problems; I'm just curious and a bit afraid that this is something that might bite me later on.
Oh, and I do have AMD graphics card drivers, of course. The info panel in the settings says: "Radeon Software Version 17.1.1. OpenCL™ Version 188.8.131.52". My OS is Windows 10 version 10.0.15063.

[Btw, with admin privilege, I saw your real name and mentioned it in the last reply.]
Now, coming to the duplicate platform issue. You don't need to share any code for this. It's clearly seen from the attached clinfo output itself. I haven't come across this issue earlier, so can't point out anything particular. I've a suggestion though. A more recent driver is available now. Please try the latest one and share your observation. If the issue still persists, I'll report it to the concerned team.
Indeed, installing version 17.7.2 of the Radeon drivers fixed the issue. Now clinfo reports only one AMD platform and everything seems to be well.
