22AF IBM i and the Paradox of Approximate Computing
No one will argue that computing, across hardware and software, has evolved over the past 30 years to allow us to do things about which our grandparents never dreamed. Would they have guessed that all that computational power, combined with unfathomable volumes of data, would be used to get less accurate answers? That is the strength and beauty of the cognitive era, as computing works like our brains not giving the “right” answer, but to deliver the “best” answer. IBM i, with its integrated database, linkages to the latest programming languages, and connections to the very latest cognitive applications is just as relevant in the era of approximate computing as it was at its inception.
