The surprising usefulness of sloppy arithmetic →

January 5th, 2011

Wow – this is pretty fascinating šŸ™‚ The scientists are making massively powerful 1000-core processors, but by reducing their accuracy to within 1% (among other simplifications).

I especially like the idea that these sloppy-processors might be useful in getting humans and machines interacting better. It implies we have to lower machines' standards to integrate with humans šŸ˜›
