RISC-V has been one of the most disruptive innovation in computer architecture community. Since its inception back in 2010, RISC-V has grown from Berkley labs to the mainstream industry. In first part of the talk, the evolution of computer architecture, RISC and CISC differences, the factors making one architecture more accepted than others will be discussed. In the later half, the birth of RISC-V to where we stand now and what future holds for it will be discussed. This talk is more focused towards students who want to know what is RISC-V to what opportunities it holds for future research.
