I guess for medical devices, the market forces alone is not enough to tell which device would be easily commercialized. However, it begs the question: is it correct to commercialise the medical industry to a point where if a needed medical device is created but not enough people use it, it will be phased out of the market altogether? What of the people who truly need it, but are in such small numbers that do not justify mass production? Chris - http://americanvisitorinsurance.com

I have to help the poor clinicians manage ill fitting medical equipment after purchase; it's a huge challenge. Hopefully more manufacturers will use this system to identify and help solve the correct issues.

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.
