A New Way of Supercomputing with Posit Research

In this video from Disruptive Technologies exhibit at SC17, Theodore Omtzigt describes the mission of a new Startup called Posit Research.

“Posit Research is a fabless semi designing and marketing posit-based computational solutions for the artificial intelligence and high-performance computing markets. We are creating a new type of artificial intelligence supercomputer that adapts to the application. It uses a new number system called posit.”

According to inventor John Gustafson, Posits solve the memory bottleneck and power constraint of large cloud and supercomputer installations enabling larger scale, lower cost, and improved efficiency of AI solutions and services.

In this video from the HPC Advisory Council Australia Conference, John Gustafson from A*STAR presents: Beating Floats at Their Own Game.
