10,000x More Efficient Computing

Groups

Varied important problems can be solved using surprisingly approximate arithmetic. We've designed a co-processor for such arithmetic that provides 100,000 cores on a single standard chip, or 1,000 cores in a sub-watt mobile device. We are exploring applications of such machines in image and video processing. Cost can be under a penny per core, and compared to CPUs, improvements in speed and energy use can exceed 10,000x.
