A Look at Floating Point and Posit Computing

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the problems with IEEE Floating Point.

"As described in a recent presentation by John Gustafson, the flaws and idiosyncrasies of floating-point arithmetic "constitute a sizable portion of any curriculum on Numerical Analysis." The whole thing has Dan pretty worked up, so we hope that the news of Posit Computing coming to the new processors from Rex Computing will help. The A*STAR center at the National University of Singapore will be one of the first to test out Rex machines later this month."

After that, we do our Catch of the Week.
