Technology Transfer Webinar 10: Infinity Computer: methodology, patents, prototypes and applications
07-02-17 | 10:00 - 11:00 AM CET
How to compute with infinities and infinitesimals numerically on a new supercomputer?
The webinar presents a recent methodology and patents allowing one to execute numerical computations with finite, infinite, and infinitesimal numbers on a new type of a supercomputer called the Infinity Computer (patented in Europe, USA, and Russia). The Infinity Computer can potentially change our way of working with infinity and has been successfully used in a number of pure and applied areas of mathematics and computer science. It appears to drastically increase the accuracy of computations and opens completely new areas of applications. The Infinity Calculator using the Infinity Computer technology will be presented during the talk. More information about the supercomputer can be found at http://www.theinfinitycomputer.com
Why the topic is relevant to tech transfer and licensing: the Infinity Computer is a new kind of supercomputing allowing to execute a new type of calculations (different form Cantor’s alephs and non-standard analysis). It simplifies wide fields of Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science where the usage of infinity and/or infinitesimals is required giving so to the consumer a new level of accuracy of computations that does not exist on the market. The technology is available and the Professor is looking for partnerships to further develop the idea.
Why the topic is relevant to EU and Japanese businesses: beside the academic interest to the topic, this technology can be applied in different industries like avionics, aerospace, statistics, meteorology, computational biology, computational finance, semiconductor. Therefore, Japanese and/or European businesses can well be the potential partners/licensees of this technology.
