So what of the EMI problem?

I'm not sure I understand. Reading the article, it seems that induction lights get a break for EMI, where they don't need to meet the same requirements as other household appliances. And we're supposed to think that's fine?

According to the article, they get dispensation because they are supposedly "industrial" or "medical" equipment. Perhaps, if the EMI issue is mostly in the 200 KHz to 500 KHz band, only users of longwave and the AM broadcast band will notice. Still, to me this is not something to just brush aside. It's a big negative.

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.
