If each datacenter is 50MW what % of the global energy consumption are data centers? 0.1%? 1%? Kris

"Today the largest datacenters for Web giants such as Amazon, Facebook, and Google each draw 40 to 50W."

Would it be 40 to 50 mega watts rather?

It my work in US, Europe, other places, but self-Driven car sounds like a dream to me living in India. I am sure it is not going to work here. Numbers of cars are increasing exponentially, while roads are not getting wider in the same proportion. As the population is bound to grow, I can only imagine more congested cities, more traffic and I wonder how self-driven cars would work here. Really speaking, I don't see a need of cars getting connected to clouds yet...I am an old fashioned guy. I would rather like to think about governments regularizing the use of renewable energy for datacenters and encouraging technological breakthroughs to have power efficient datacenters.

Interesting that a move to self-driving cars would be caused by insurance companies making it cheaper than manually-driven cars as opposed to some huge shift among consumers. Itt may take longer for the average person to buy the notion that it's safer to let cars drive themselves than it would for insurance companies, who are going to look at the data regarding safety with less bias.

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.
