I've been spending a lot of time working on Field Programmable Gate
Arrays (FPGAs) which is basically hardware that can be reprogrammed.
There have been some interesting developments in this area.
First, FPGAs are a lot more powerful and much cheaper.
Second, Intel just bought the second largest FPGA company, Altera.
Third, FPGAs are moving toward computational mathematics.
I believe, though I don't know for sure, that Intel will eventually
put an FPGA fabric on the same chip (Sytem on a Chip, SoC) as their
Axiom is in a unique position to exploit this kind of hardware merger.
If anyone has pointers to work on hardware-based symbolic/numeric
work, please send me a link.
