You are absolutely correct. Younger generation in Japan has completely different idea in comparion with older generations'. Younger engineers change jobs easy, working for not company but for familty or for his own life which is good things as a human being but it will definetly negatively imapct Japan's future in this technology sector.

LTE will take time. Japan will produce chip set. Japan is bit slow but they are working on many projects. NTT will continue to provide wireless connectivity.

I think it partially has something to do with engineers as well. Older generations of engineers work hard for almost lifelong and this helped them achieve high quality products. I heard younger engineers are not so dedicated anymore.

I am glad Japan didn't cancel the project instead just reduced the scope of the project. I am sure they can always expand the project scope once the sentiment in market returns to normalcy.

Japan has lost the competitive in another looming lost decade. The best hardware has left Japan and one hopes they can reverse the trend.

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.
