The first thing to do is to create an intuitive data interface ("dashboard"). We can all glance at the dashboard of our car and immediately recognize any system failures, our speed, and so forth. The medical data display should be at least as intuitive. I don't believe the end product will be a set of graphs. Perhaps it would be a human outline with a danger signal superimposed over the organ system that is failing. Or perhaps the organs would be "grayed out" when normal and "highlighted" when they were in an abnormal condition.

Hope to see many more such examples of sharing technological best practices across domains for good reasons. So, is a doctor's job going to get easier with this tool as it is easier for a pilots to fly the plane equipped with the modern, sophisticated auto-pilot?

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.
