“I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” This saying, probably wrongly attributed to Confucius, might be an interpreted translation of a similar saying by 3rd century BCE philosopher Xun Kuang (in the
Stochastic computing: techniques and applications
Gross W., Gaudet V., Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2019. 215 pp. Type: Book (978-3-030037-29-1)
Stochastic computing is an approach to numerical computing that dates back to von Neumann’s work on probabilistic logics in 1952, and that requires far fewer transistors than conventional numerical processing. This economy led to extensive r...
