Such disruption is frequently resisted, but at some point, if the disruption is significant enough, the healthcare industry's resistance will become futile.

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.
