A new year and a new caption challenge! What's going on in Daniel Guidera's latest cartoon, a new version of a stay-cation? Or perhaps this fellow just can't wait for the week to end. Whatever the reason, tee time seems to have arrived to the lab early. Give us your best shot by adding your caption to the comments field, below. At the end of January, we'll put the best submissions to a vote and the winner will their very own colorized cartoon from Daniel.
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.
