New ARM processors are ready for application AI

The British Corporation ARM has improved heterogeneous computing architecture ARM big.LITTLE, upon which all the leading microprocessors since ARM Cortex-A7 (2011) — and yesterday presented a new heterogeneous architecture DynamIQ big.LITTLE. On-chip dedicated area for special hardware accelerators applications of machine learning. Perhaps in the future, hardware support for neural networks will become a new trend among developers of microprocessors and an essential quality of new smartphones.


The consciousness has no place in the body, and the relationship of brain and mind - the mystery of the primeval

The more accurate the clock, the more blurred becomes the time

Time is a strange thing. We used to count the hours, but the Universe is not some main clocks and dials, so we can experience time differently, depending on how we move or how we are affected by gravity. Physicists have tried to unite the two great theories physicists to conclude that time is not only not agreed upon a universal, and any clock that we use to measure it, erode over time in the surrounding space.


He-who-can, but should: SpaceX and the prospects of colonization of Mars

Today, we observe with interest how the SpaceX rocket vertically landing on a floating platform. Tomorrow we look out the window of the Mars dome (will it have Windows?), to admire the flowering tomatoes. Between today and tomorrow — gap length... theoretically 10 to 20 years. Almost of the progress mankind has never seen, and over the last 50 years.
