Do you ever go back in to pick up where you left off in a conference session? That's the beauty of archiving. Do you see this format gaining ground?

I have been doing virtual conferences for a year. The big plusses are no travel, good discussions and technical talks, and a variety of vendors to choose from. Invariably there is one vendor I have never heard of that is quite interesting. The downside is that other work intrudes and so sometimes I miss a conference session or have to break off a conversation.

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.
