HOW GOOGLE'S NEW A.I. MICROCHIPS TAKE A PAGE FROM BITCOIN MINERS

Yesterday at  Google’s I/O developers conference , CEO Sundar Pichai briefly spoke about a custom-built chip that helps give Google its edge in machine learning and artificial intelligence. The chip, dubbed a TPU or Tensor Processing Unit (in keeping with  Google's A.I. platform TensorFlow ), is specifically wrought for running Google’s decision-making algorithms.  Most companies like Facebook and Microsoft use GPUs  for their machine learning and artificial intelligence.But Pichai’s speech and the  accompanying blog post  only reveal a few details about TPUs. About the only useful thing we know about the chip is that it’s an ASIC, or application-specific integrated circuit. ASIC chips aren’t bought off the shelves, but designed specifically to do one task very well without using a lot of power. They’re used in applications that never change, like the controlling how a phone battery charges. .............................. [ read full story ] Tags :   Bitcoin, Business,

A short article on "flying dinosaurs"

image credit We are all familiar to Pterodactyl, the flying dinosaur. But, actually there existed so many flying dinosaurs. The common name of all this “flying dinosaurs” is Pterosaurs. There are about 130 genus of Pterosaurs existed in the jurassic period. Here I listed some of them — 1. Pterodactyl The Pterodactyls had a couple of very wide wings up to 40 feet long. But, these wings are not similar to modern bird’s wings. There were no feathers , their wings were made of a leathery substance. They lived near the sea in the cave & trees. They ate sea fish, large insects & other small dinosaurs. We found their fossils in Europe, North America, Australia, and Africa.  Pterodactyl image credit Pterodactyl Fossil image credit 2. Petinosaurus Petinosaurus wings were formed by membranes of skin and other soft tissues. And also there were no feathers on their wings. These types of flying dinosaurs are small in size than Pterodactyl. Food habit is the same as Pt

What are bitcoin miners really solving? (collected from web)

What are bitcoin miners really solving? Here is an  extremely  simplified sketch of the problem, but it should give a pretty good idea of what the problem is.  The data:  This is the hash of the lastest block (shortened to 30 characters):   00000000000001adf44c7d69767585 These are the hashes of a few valid transactions waiting for inclusion (shortened).  5572eca4dd4 db7d0c0b845 And this the hash of one special transaction that you just crafted, which gives 25BTC (the current reward) to yourself:  916d849af76 Building the next block:  Now, let's use a gross approximation of what a new block might look  like (the real one uses binary format). It contains the hash of the  previous block and the hashes of those 3 transactions:  00000000000001adf44c7d69767585--5572eca4dd4-db7d0c0b845-916d849af76-- Now let's do mining by hand! Our goal is to complete this block with a  nonce (a piece of garbage) such that the hash of the new block starts  with 13 zeros (consid
