What's the matter with these idiots? Is there no limit to the extent of intrusion they're willing to impose on others? Now regular employees are going to be made to wear "ankle bracelets," in essence, and somehow everyone's okay with this?

Why do things have to get out of hand before people get p*ssed off enough to clamp down on such nonsense?

Agree, ridicolous idea...why don't they track the money instead? billing in US hospitals differs by 10x depending on the procedure and place where it is done...or track million dollar compensation for hospital executives...or maybe track their time instead! Kris

Indeed! I can understand the difficult of logistic in running a hospital. Efficiency is crucial to low the medical cost. However, I would not feel good if my time in the office was tracked every seconds. What worst is if the tracked person is required to explain every action. Does the tracking system, after all, improve the efficiency?

This is a horrible thought!

How do the nurses feel about having every step tracked?

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.
