Unary Computing

I see bitstreams.

Concept

Unary computing is an emerging computing scheme that feeds on unary bitstreams, instead of binary data.

Unary computing is extremely power efficient, e.g., an AND gate can act as a unary multiplier for rate-coded bitstreams.


 


Application

Unary computing has been used for image processing, error correction, machine learning, deep learning, superconducting, brain computer interface, etc.


 

Effort

My research on unary computing includes but not is limited to algorithm, circuit, metric, simulation, architecture, application.

Part of my work was featured in IEEE Micro Top Pick 2020.


 

Resource

I build a website for unary computing here, during my PhD study with Joshua San Miguel. Check it out if you are interested!
