Startup Aims to Transform Computing with Probability Processing

Aug 16, 2010 |

MIT spin-out Lyric Semiconductor Inc. has launched a new breed of integrated circuits that replaces the binary logic of traditional computing with probabilistic logic. The aim is to deliver a much more efficient architecture for applications based on probability computing. For these types of workloads, the company is promising orders-of-magnitude improvement in energy efficiency, performance and cost.

MIT’s StarCluster: An Update with Screencast
