Whether there be automation in China or the USA that still doesn't necessarily bode well for the number of jobs. Demand for the supply of goods will ultimately determine whether an industry will employ lots of people or not. Here in Australia the bigger mines are very automated but because there is a large demand for coal and iron ore from China there is loads of work to go round not just in the mines but also building rail transport and ports, housing, supply and support services for all the workers.

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.
