Maybe some of today's forecasters already base their predictions on a few hours' History Channel viewing... ;-)

Final note: Clearly, Gordon Moore in 1965 showed an uncanny ability to predict the future. Based on just a few hours of History Channel viewing, it's possible to conclude that the ancient Mayans, Nostradamus and others who lived hundreds of years ago also did. Perhaps some of today's semiconductor industry market forecasters should borrow some of these ancient techniques and incorporate them into their models?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
