Yes, why not? I think such a artificial pancreas is not more dangerous than a cardiac pacemaker. And medical devices have to guarantee various safety standards like IEC 61508. But I can not imagine to wear such a device at bedtime or during sporting activities like jogging.

I think this will ultimately mean more reliability- not less.

If I needed it, I'd certainly be willing to give it a shot. Certainly medical technology is failable (I know someone that had a replaced hip recalled), but enough of it works quite well to make the odds worth it in my mind.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
