High Fives, Dr Lipson! I hope the Genius award is more aptly named than the Nobel Peace Prize.

I think optics cannot beat silicon-based electronics for integration density. However, maybe it can win in speed? So instead of cramming more in same space, cram it in time (time-division multiplexing)?! Then the other concern is power consumption. The development of highly efficient lasers, either VCSEL's or waveguide-type or even fiber type, should be highly encouraged. I hope Ms. Lipson will find it easier to push these developments (which will definitely help her ongoing projects) with her well-deserved award.

Congratulations! Now that you have conquered the micro-world, perhaps I could interest you in the macro-world related to harvesting sunlight.

This is a great achievement for a woman! Now she can afford a trip to the hair salon :-)

I like this kind of Awards, this give the researchers very good freedom of spending money in the directions they want without giving useless justification to the managing authorities.

BTW, Clay Mathematics Institute will give you a million dollars for proving — or disproving "P=NP?", no strings attached!

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.
