We are dealing with politicians.
Each will defend anything made in thier state or district with great oratory and scare tactics.
Its what they do.
I will judge them on what things they really cut.
Maybe their pay for not doing anything useful for the last four years. That should just about balance the budget.
Just my opinion.
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.
