Links of the day 15/01/2016 : Berkeley BOOM processor, Approximate computing and natural language parser

  • Mycroft Adapt : intent definition and determination framework which basically enables you to parse natural language text into a structured intent that can then be invoked programatically.
  • BOOM : Berkeley Out-of-Order RISC-V Processor, nice effort to explore the OoO space with actual hardware rather than simulation. It demonstrate that we might start to see interesting thing in the cpu space as the development cost drops while the iteration speed increase [tech report][slides][video]
  • Approximate computing : When you are willing to trade off computing quality for the effort expended you might want to look at this Survey Of Techniques for Approximate Computing to find the best trade-off.
