Podcast: The Turing Machine is Sequential, so how about a Parallel Machine?

The @RadioFreeHPC team is joined by the folks at MemComputing, a San Diego startup that’s built a new parallel foundation for computing. It calls it the universal memcomputing machine, and a realization of self-organizing circuits. “We analytically prove that the memory properties of UMMs endow them with universal computing power—they are Turing-complete.”

Chevron Technology Ventures Selects MemComputing for Prestigious Catalyst Program

Today MemComputing announced it has been selected for participation in the Chevron Technology Ventures Catalyst Program. CTV’s Catalyst Program supports early-stage companies who are advancing cutting-edge technologies that can directly benefit the oil and gas industry. “While the compute problems we will explore together are quite complex, we are currently achieving results with academic and industrial problem sets that suggest our technology is very applicable to oil and gas in areas such as demand forecasting and resource planning.”

Researchers Build Memcomputing Prototype

Over at Scientific Advances, a newly published paper describes a new high-efficiency computing paradigm called memcomputing. Modeled after the human brain, a memprocessor processes and stores information within the same units by means of their mutual interactions. Now, researchers have built a working prototype.
