I had the pleasure of working (mentoring?) Colin during one of his co-op work terms (5th page - Power Analysis for Cheapskates) a number of years ago. At the time, my interest was in the simplification of the mathematics involved to decrypt RSA ... which was merely a brute force attack combined with modelling of acceptable ranges. Power analysis was a concept which attacked decryption based on the profiling of routines required to decrypt internally and using that to extrapolate results ... why try to enter through the locked front door when the window is left wide open. Great idea.

Sorry, but I loose all respect for a journalist when they use the words "robot apocalypse" in an article. You might think you were being ironic, but it is lazy and pernicious and every article written about robotics seems to be trying to scare the public. This isn't 1950. No rational person believes that robots have, or are even capable of, hostile intent any more. It is exactly that short of ill-informed Luddite attitude that gave China & Japan the scientific lead over the USA in robotics.

Sorry but I don't take feedback from commentors who dress like members of "The Avengers." ;-)

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.
