IBM spent 10s if not 100s of millions developing Watson, but they did it with much more foresight than their previous Deep Blue computer that beat chess grandmaster Gary Kasparov. By crafting it using standard servers and a plug-in database, IBM can now plug-in other domains and quickly get Watson-like applications running in commercial fields.

yesterday, i watched this achievement getting coverage on Jon Stewart's Daily show. I did not know before that what IBM's Watson was all about. It took IBM 6 years to develop this, i wonder how much money did they invest? And of course its services can (in principle) be applied in all the thinkable consultancy services.

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.
