Arithmetic plays a major role in computing performance and efficiency. It is challenging to build platforms, ranging from embedded devices to high performance computers, supported on traditional binary arithmetic and silicon-based technologies that meet the requirements of today’s applications. In this talk, the state-of-the-art of non-conventional computer arithmetic is presented, considering alternative computing models and emerging technologies. It provides comprehensive overview of logarithmic and residue number systems, hyperdimensional and stochastic computing, as well as arithmetic for DNA-based computing. And focuses nanotechnologies and applications in emergent domains, such as deep learning and post-quantum cryptography.
