Very interesting technology! I can see a clear use for close-range gesture/proximity detection specifically when a RGB camera has limited field-of-view. What is the resolution of detection? Can it detect individual fingers? The only drawback I see is that this solution will require a HW change as compared to a RGB camera based solution, which would only need a SW update (given that most of the handheld devices now have a RGB camera). Are you seeing a willingness in manufacturers and consumers for this approach? -Gaurav , Texas Instruments

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.
