Parallel Bit Pattern Computing
Parallel Bit Pattern (PBP) computing is a new model of computation aiming to
dramatically decrease power consumed per unit computation. It also is inspired
by Quantum computing, and can claim many of the same potential benefits 
despite not requiring use of exotic implementation methods such as quantum
phenomena. An efficient PBP system can be built using conventional digital
logic, and it can be efficiently simulated on conventional computers.

Rotationally Emulated Quantum Computer, a 3Dprinted physical simulator
for a 16way entangled 16Qubit system... which actually runs on a single core
of an old laptop using the PBP execution model.

Presentations and Publications
The following are the most relevant presentations and publications, in reverse
chronological order.

December 2, 2021, we virtually presented Basic Operations And
Structure Of An FPGA Accelerator For Parallel Bit Pattern Computation at
IEEE International Conference on Rebooting
Computing (ICRC 2021)

August 9, 2021, Prof. Dietz virtually presented "Tangled: A Conventional
Processor Integrating A QuantumInspired Coprocessor," at ICPP 2021 (slides, paper).

October 15, 2020, Dietz presented A QuantumInspired Model For BitSerial
SIMDParallel Computation (slides, preprint) at LCPC 2020 Conference
(virtually hosted by Stony Brook University).

slides, video at nanoHUB), at the Purdue University School of Electrical and
Computer Engineering. This is the "extended dance remix version" of the
previous talk by the same name.

February 13, 2019, Prof. Dietz gave the talk, A GateLevel Approach To
Compiling For Quantum Computers (video, PDF slides), at the
University of Kentucky Computer Science Department's Keeping
Current seminar.

December 13, 2018, KREQC
(pronounced "creek") is Kentucky's Rotationally Emulated Quantum
Computer. This 6qubit quantum computer is driven by servos rather than
exotic physics, but it provides a very visible way to understand quantum
computing. Both a complete simulator and the actual hardware are freely
available for anyone to run programs via the WWW interface; the simulator
gives complete trace and results, running on the hardware returns a video of
the run.

KREQC (pronounced "creek") is Kentucky's Rotationally
Emulated Quantum Computer. It's a bit of a joke, but it's also a great way to
be introduced to the fundamentals of Quantum computing as a computing model,
as opposed to the interesting physics that underlie Quantum computer
implementations.

October 2224, 2018, Presented A GateLevel Approach To Compiling For
Quantum Computers at The 9th
International Green And Sustainable Computing Conference. The full paper
is available from the conference site and slides from our presentation are
available here as a PDF.

October 1112, 2017, Prof. Dietz presented How
Low Can You Go? and will be on the panel Compilers and Languages for
Parallel Computing  What have we Achieved? at LCPC 2017. Here are my slides from the panel....
The only thing set in stone is our name.
