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.
Last week we ran a feature article from Justin Riley entitled, “StarCluster Brings HPC to the Amazon Cloud” that drew significant attention from the community. The author was kind enough to send a screencast for HPC in the Cloud that provides a more thorough view of StarCluster in action.
The Software Tools for Academics and Researchers (STAR) group at MIT has created an open-source project called StarCluster that allows anyone to create HPC clusters on Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) without needing to be a cloud expert.
