Scientists have devised a novel approach to combine memory and computation units
Modern computers carry out computations — also called ‘logical operations’ — on massive amounts of data that are stored in specialised memory devices. The computing blocks need to exchange significant amounts of data with Random Access Memory, or RAM, a type of temporary memory. Over the years, various applications that search and process the appropriate data from memory devices have increasingly demanded faster computations.
Researchers develop a search system to extract meaningful data from live social media posts
Ever tried searching ‘goal’ or ‘kick’ on Twitter during the interval of a football world cup match? You were probably trying to find out who scored the goal on a penalty kick in the first half, and chances are that search results also have content about life goals and a kick from coffee!
A theoretical study from IIT Bombay can help make our military communication more robust
The security and reliability of communication systems used in military applications are uncompromisable. Jammers can disrupt radio communication in a locality; a strategy the military is shown to use while attacking terrorist camps in a recent movie. Knowing how jammers behave in various conditions becomes significant.
