Some problems are so challenging to solve that even the most advanced computers need weeks, not seconds, to process them.

Now a team of researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology and University of Notre Dame has created a new computing system that aims to tackle one of computing's hardest problems in a fraction of the time.

"We wanted to find a way to solve a problem without using the normal binary representations that have been the backbone of computing for decades," said Arijit Raychowdhury, an associate professor in Georgia Tech's School of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Damn actual MSM coverage of Accelerating Trends type computing systems. This must be a first.


I clicked all around in that video and see no mention of the tech story.

I have to admit, that story is very "fair & balanced".

ps. I think you embedded the wrong video

No link to an article and an irrelevant video.

You're off to a good start, newbie...

It's stuff like this that makes me proud to be human. Just think of the possibilities!

Or ashamed when they are put into real world application by the military.

Two MIM-23 Hawk missiles veered off course during test-firing

is it part off the new computer system

It sounds good but probably will be costly for those without very large bank accounts, bit like the D-Wave Quantum systems. For most basic IT houses experimental stuff will not even get a look in as the cost will be important not just in the initial start up but the fact that you need people who understand it to support it should it have a bit of a wobbly.

Also new tech takes time to trickle down and actually become shall we say usable in daily life so while i'm sure I could understand the theory when presented with the actual item it might be a different idea as with Q-bit systems having to be frozen to near absolute zero its going to have a while before any engineer will pop a pinky inside the system.

Traditionally, if you want to do graph coloring, it's a linear process where you start at one point, assign a color to that point, move onto the neighbors, cycle through all the possible remaining colors, then move onto their neighbors and so on. If you end up being blocked you roll backwards to the last possible valid set of choices and choose a new path.

With this system, this is all done in parallel, each point gets assigned a random color, and if it doesn't match with the neighbors, it gets assigned a new random group, and then the process continues. So it's more like a genetic algorithm that starts off with a random states, makes some changes, checks to see if they are improvements or not. If they are, then the worst ones are removed and new mutations are tried.

This is done directly using electronics than even using a GPU or neural network.

A radar and laser beam system for detecting and destroying drones has been unveiled at the Paris Air Show by Israel's Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd.

The system, called Drone Dome, has a range of up to several miles and causes minimal interruptions to other systems in nearby urban areas, the company said during at the Paris Air Show.

"The threat posed by drones and packs of drones is one of the most complex challenges confronting us," reserve Brig. Gen. Meir Ben Shaya, manager of Rafael's Business Development, Air division, told Globes. "We have seen ISIS and other groups using them and the entire world is looking for a solution."

"We have taken the laser systems developed by Rafael and adapted them to cope with this threat, which is such a major challenge for defense systems worldwide."

Rafael says the system's radar identifies targets, while its laser system destroys them. Drone Dome also features a jamming system for disrupting communications between the drone and its operator.

Additional details of the system were not disclosed.

Wonder if these is part of that
