For 40 years, semiconductor technology has followed Moore's law, but continuing that pattern will require a breakthrough in energy-efficient design. Eventually the industry must also seek an entirely new paradigm, such as creating reliable systems from unreliable components.
This paper presents speaker recognition system possessing very good generalization properties. Relatively low equal error rate for speaker verification and high identification rate for identification are achieved for very short training and testing sequences. This behaviour is achieved for the kernel modification of a classic Ho-Kashyap linear classifier.… (More)
Heat is dissipated in consequence of computations and must be removed to the ambient. Landaulet's ultimate limit is very low compared to energy spent by contemporary microprocessors to process one bit of data. Moreover the ultimate limit cannot be reached without sophisticated data coding whereas microprocessors process uncoded bits. In the article data… (More)
