Quadric CPU Combines AI with Conventional Code

Another day, another new microprocessor architecture. There was a time in the Nineties when everyone and his dog was designing a new processor. They were all going to revolutionize the world, crush Intel, enable new cutting-edge devices, and show us how it’s really supposed to be done. The nerd journals were filled with new CPU acronyms like RISC, VLIW, IPC, EPIC, ROB, ILP, SSE2, TLB, … Read More → "Quadric CPU Combines AI with Conventional Code"

Machine Vision Meets Hackathon: ADLINK’s 20/20 Hack Solves Real World Problems

Edge AI On The Cheap and Deep

There’s an old salesman’s adage that “confused customers never buy.” That’s why glossy sales brochures don’t have a lot of technical information, and why car salesmen don’t delve too deeply into features and benefits. Too much information can lead to analysis paralysis, and, while that might be fun for engineers, it’s bad for business.

The Digital Thread: The Advancement of Digital Backbones and the World’s First Digital Fiber Fabric

Ready, Aim, Digitize! In this week’s podcast, we start things off by taking a closer look at the world’s first digital fiber fabric developed at MIT. We investigate how this new digital fiber is able to collect and store data and the role AI plays in how it is able to process that data as … Read More → "The Digital Thread: The Advancement of Digital Backbones and the World’s First Digital Fiber Fabric"

Are We Ready for Human Brain-Scale AI?

My poor old noggin is currently full of ideas ricocheting around like corn kernels in an over-enthusiastic popcorn machine. As a tempting teaser, are you aware that: “Tachyum is enabling human brain-scale AI and advancing the entire world to a greener era by delivering the world’s first universal processor”? If not, then I will be delighted to expound, explicate, and elucidate, but first…
