[Links of the Day] 09/08/2018 : Consciousness and integrated information, Optical FPGA, Events DB

  • Making Sense of Consciousness as Integrated Information : in this papers, the authors argue that we currently have a dissociation between cognition and experience and that it might impact in the future in an hyper-connected world.
  • Towards an optical FPGA : it look like programmable silicon photonic circuits is the next frontier in the hardware accelerator. Converting light into an electrical signal has rapidly become too expensive and modern CPU have a hard time coping with the pace of evolution of networking capabilities. 
  • TraildDB : tool for storing and querying series of events. Fast small efficient.
