The old saying is that when manufacture goes, the R&D follows. We are kidding ourselves if we are thinking the innovation brain will be created here in US in any significant number. If there is no abundant engineer employments here, the young and bright people here will look other ways. If it takes 100 engineers to generate one brilliant engineer who is really innovative, then you know US will cease to be the center of the innovations. This actually already happened. The young bright choose to be money manager, lawyer. But money manager and lawyer do not create material things. When wealth center move to Asia, who needs US money managers and US lawyer. The "good greedy global capitalism" will erode US to its old empty shell. And nobody can stop the race to the bottom, period. But pendulum will swing back when our living stand reduce to that of our Asia peers (or they rise to our living stand or we meet in the middle whatever). Hey, we (old engineers) had some run and fun. The sad part is our children have to face a cruel and cold (not the climate, which will continue to rise to disaster level and nobody can do anything about it) world.

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.
