Andre Geim gave a speech a year before he won the Nobel prize in Boston. When asked about the commercial applications of graphene, he told a joke about people aboard a cruise ship on the mediterranean. The sun was setting and golden and there were a large pod of dolphins playing near the boat, jumping out of water in sync from time to time, everybody on board was silent and utterly absorbed by the sheer beauty of this scene. Then, suddenly a boy shouted out "Mom, can we eat them?" I guess its time the eat the dolphins now. :)

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.
