In anticipation of mobile devices reaching supercomputer speeds by 2018, Intel is crafting pattern-recognition algorithms for use today that can be scaled up to take advantage of such future speeds. Look for smarter computer-aided everything as speed ramp up to take advantage of pattern recognition algorithms that can automatically sort, sift and organize our digital lives. R.C.J.
At Intel, its People and Practices Research Group is crafting pattern-recognition algorithms that it hopes will gracefully scale-up, as more and more consumer electronic devices approach supercomputer speeds. According to Intel, by the year 2018 mobile phones will have somewhere between 4 and 10 teraflops of processing power, surpassing the speeds of room-filling supercomputers of not so very long ago. In anticipation of these advances, Intel's "Everyday Sensing and Perception" study aims to answer the simple yet relevant question: "What are people going to do with these systems when they achieve supercomputer speeds?"
