Engadget sat down with Calista Redmond from RISC-V International, Krste Asanović from SiFive, Ted Marena of Western Digital, and Art Swift from Esperanto Technologies to talk about RISC-V.

This is an open-standard processor architecture that hopes to open up chip design to many companies from startups to major firms. RISC-V enables companies to design their own chips without paying license fees to the big industry players like Intel and ARM, and provides a structure for companies to produce their own custom processors, micro-controllers and chips.

Intelligence was once thought to be uniquely human.

But researchers have discovered astonishing cognitive abilities in many other species—not just our close cousins like chimps, or fellow mammals like dolphins—but also crows, parrots, and even octopuses.

If we consider the intelligence of swarms, we must add bees, termites, and ants to the list of super smart creatures. Join the scientists who study smarts as we ask: What is intelligence?

As we continue to develop AI, we realize how fluid the definition of intelligence can be.

I remember watching this as a kid and being fascinated by the possibilities the future provided.

I cannot overstate the impact that Omni Magazine had on my life. Smile
