Parallel programming has been one of the banes of the software industry for decades. I'd love to hear some anecdotes from the trenches about how it is going for today's increasingly many hetero core processors.

This is the way to satisfy the dual requirement of high performance and high level programming -> standardization of interfaces.

I wonder how long these standards for particular manufacturers would remain confidential, or exactly how much damage would result if they leaked out?   It doesn't seem to me this information would give away any serious trade secrets that would affect the marketplace...

What do others think?

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.
