April was a month of consolidation, yet still saw some serious improvements as well. Especially by the end of the month we made some great strides forward and had several breakthroughs, which is why this is again a short update. There is a lot of work coming up, and time is better spent doing that.
We’ll go deeper into the nature of the breakthroughs in our next status update, when we have been able to explore and verify their nature.
This month was largely spent cleaning up the latest version and fixing some bugs. Lukas also updated the documentation files to reflect the latest changes.
All IXI modules now communicate with Ict and each other through the EEE model. Benoit has been working hard on the serialization.IXI, which now has its first stable incarnation. Samuel did more work on the graph.IXI and timestamping.IXI, and started on the weighing.IXI. Lukas created ec.IXI, which now contains the Economic Clustering component for Ict.
We have a new addition to the FPGA sub-team. Thomas Serbis (Serbeastio on Discord) has joined as full-time FPGA Design Engineer. This should finally give Donald some much-deserved relief.
For the rest there has been a lot of movement on the FPGA front. We have come to several important insights and are about to embark on a path that creates 3 (!!!) separate implementations of running trinary code on existing binary hardware. It will be interesting to compare these implementations to see which one performs best.
We released part 5 and part 6 in the series of articles that explore the depths of the Qubic Computation Model (QCM). Stay tuned for at least two more articles in this series....
