Putting Japanese Technology at the Top of the World With Parallelization of Next Generation Multicore Processors
Just over 25 years ago, computer development was centered around hardware with little importance placed on software. The dominant way of thinking in Japan was that if hardware was produced, software would naturally follow. But I thought this was the wrong line of thinking.

When good enough is better: System finds sections of computer programs where accuracy can be traded for speed
"It used to be that people used computers for computations where there was a single, hard, logical right answer," says Martin Rinard, a professor of computer science at MIT. "Now, the landscape is changing." When you do a Google search, for instance, the exact order of the first few results may not matter as much as getting an answer quickly. In the Internet age, when Web servers are performing computations for thousands of users at once, and sending the results across thousands of miles of optical fiber, programs that can efficiently find adequate solutions to a problem are often preferable ...
