Should say "anti-cloud argument"

Local computing is the original Wintel party line, he's reflecting Intel's wish to go back to glory days. Better cloud argument can be made from a made up Big Brother horror story, like Amazon or Apple or Google or Microsoft monitoring your internet preferences.

Finally someone who has the courage to go against the latest fashion and say something against cloud computing

Really, power and bandwidth go down together, no technology gets around it.

isn't this pretty much the epitome of obviousness? power is the main issue when building even current tera- and petascale facilities. the story on leakage is not exactly fresh either...

When Shekhar Borkar talks, the world listens. It is evident that issues related to ultra low submicron CMOS technologies will keep the power burning. But I am confident we can get this sorted out in the next few years.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
