By 2019 all use of typedef will be outlawed in C++?

“The Mars Climate Orbiter was a 338-kilogram (745 lb) robotic space probe launched by NASA on December 11, 1998 to study the Martian climate, Martian atmosphere, and surface changes and to act as the communications relay in the Mars Surveyor '98 program for Mars Polar Lander. However, on September 23, 1999, communication with the spacecraft was lost as the spacecraft went into orbital insertion, due to ground-based computer software which produced output in non-SI units of pound (force)-seconds (lbf·s) instead of the SI units of newton-seconds (N·s) specified in the contract between NASA and Lockheed. The spacecraft encountered Mars on a trajectory that brought it too close to the planet, causing it to pass through the upper atmosphere and disintegrate.
The primary cause of this discrepancy was that one piece of ground software supplied by Lockheed Martin produced results in a United States customary unit, contrary to its Software Interface Specification (SIS), while a second system, supplied by NASA, expected those results to be in SI units, in accordance with the SIS. Specifically, software that calculated the total impulse produced by thruster firings calculated results in pound-seconds. The trajectory calculation software then used these results - expected to be in newton-seconds - to update the predicted position of the spacecraft.
The discrepancy between calculated and measured position, resulting in the discrepancy between desired and actual orbit insertion altitude, had been noticed earlier by at least two navigators, whose concerns were dismissed. A meeting of trajectory software engineers, trajectory software operators (navigators), propulsion engineers and managers, was convened to consider the possibility of executing Trajectory Correction Maneuver-5, which was in the schedule. Attendees of the meeting recall an agreement to conduct TCM-5, but it was ultimately not done.”

The world's first graph analytic processor (GAP) looks quite interesting for big data applications.

Interesting, mainly from a power consumption point of view?

If today's GPUs would be used to power a robot with a human sized brain (computing power), it would have to consume more than 1 million bananas per hour to stay fit.

Google's 2nd generation TPUs would need 20k bananas per hour, and this chip just 1k.

Yes, it can be viewed in power terms. But it can also be viewed in latency terms of how quickly the system can traverse an extremely large sparse graph to derive analytics on that graph.

I wonder if one way to think of this is a GPU is a specialized processor for NON-branching computation and this GAP is a specialized processor for highly-branching (≈ graph) computations?
