John Gustafson to host BoF on Posit Arithmetic at SC17

John Gustafson from A*STAR will host a BoF on Posit arithmetic at SC17. Entitled, “Improving Numerical Computation with Practical Tools and Novel Computer Arithmetic,”  this BOF will be co-hosted by Mike Lam with discussions on tools for measuring floating point accuracy. “This approach obtains more accurate answers than floating-point arithmetic yet uses fewer bits in many cases, saving memory, bandwidth, energy, and power.”
