There's been a lot of apocalyptic hype (on the media) about CM1K and other similar technologies. Elon Musk has voiced fears about it taking over the world, which unfortunately are not unfounded.

My understanding of these devices is that there's no software, that they more or less act on their own volition, which makes them almost actually alive. But I've never used one, so that's probably not entirely correct.

Has anyone here ever used a CM1K (or something similar)? If so, what exactly does it do?

    $\begingroup$ I think you missed my point. You can be new and still only ask a single question at a time. "Broad" here means you asked multiple questions. $\endgroup$ Apr 8 '19 at 22:36
  • $\begingroup$ ok, ive deleted the final paragraph. ill repost it as a separate question. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Just a short summary: normal computer architectures use cisc or risc which are basically rules by which a processor will fetch memory or act on instructions, this leads to bottlenecking when Neural net architectures are implemented on normal computers (fetch, execute, fetch execute) for all neurons of a ANN on a single backprop step. Whereas this zisc does all this in parallel (no need for multiple fetches for a single backprop step) which makes it super fast. $\endgroup$
