Hi Luis, Siri is a step in the right direction. However there is still room for improvement since most, if not all, the processing is done in the cloud. In Part 2 of my article, I address the need for a hybrid model where some of the processing should be on-board and some in the cloud (depending on the complexity) to achieve the best user experience.-Alvin

I do think that the iPhones superiority is due to it touchscreen interface, but also to its graphics and the very smooth way its connected with the touchscreen. The GUI in the iphone always moves in synch with the users gestures over the screen. That part of intelligent interfaces is also very interesting. Remember the Ironman movie? Despite all the technology displayed in the suit I think the most important one and the most disruptive was the Speech Recognition of Tony Stark's helper. I think Siri is kind of getting close to that isn't it?

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.
