The Universe in Consciousness
ConCISe: a compiler-driven CPLD-based instruction set accelerator
A smart compilation chain in which the compiler is no longer limited by a pre-defined instruction set, but can generate application-specific custom instructions and synthesise them in Field-Programmable Logic to reduce the reconfiguration overhead and optimise the utilisation of resources is proposed.

Self-Transcendence Correlates with Brain Function Impairment
Biography Bernardo Kastrup has a Ph.D. in computer engineering with specializations in artificial intelligence and reconfigurable computing. He has worked as a scientist in some of the world’sExpand
There Is an ‘Unconscious,’ but It May Well Be Conscious

  • 1 August 2017
It is shown that two well-known phenomena corroborate the implied hypothesis that all mental processes may in fact be conscious, the appearance of unconsciousness arising from the authors' dependence on self-reflective introspection for gauging awareness. Expand
Seeking (the right) Problems for the Solutions of Reconfigurable Computing
A think-model of four dimensions of reasoning that can help evaluate the efficiency of RC approaches is illustrated, which contributes to augmenting an RC classification system with a choice criteria for each category. Expand
An Ontological Solution to the Mind-Body Problem
I argue for an idealist ontology consistent with empirical observations, which seeks to explain the facts of nature more parsimoniously than physicalism and bottom-up panpsychism. This ontology alsoExpand
Reducing the impact of reticle CD-non-uniformity of multiple structures by dose corrections based on aerial image measurements
For many critical lithography applications the main contributor to wafer intra-field CD variation is the reticle CD variation. Current practice is that the input data needed to correct the effect ofExpand
Automatic synthesis of reconfigurable instruction set accelerators
The final author version and the galley proof are versions of the publication after peer review and the final published version features the final layout of the paper including the volume, issue and page numbers. Expand
Automatic Hardware Synthesis for a Hybrid Reconfigurable CPU Featuring Philips CPLDs
A high-level architecture of a Hybrid Reconfigurable CPU, based on a Philips-supported core processor, is introduced, and a compilation chain is presented, in which automatic implementation of time-critical program segments in custom hardware is performed. Expand
