DESCRIPTION
In all things digital, we live in a binary world. From desktop applications to mobile phone communications to other microprocessors & electronics used today, their processing instructions & data storages are ubiquitously encoded into bits. On-and-off switches. 0s & 1s. 8 bits = 1 byte (256 values), 1000 bytes = 1 kilobyte (KB), 1000 KB = 1 megabyte (MB) & so forth. That's how the conventional story goes.

But what if there exists a computing logic that is not binary but rather ternary? With trits rather than bits? With {0,1, 2} or {-1, 0, 1} outputs rather than the standard {0, 1}? Well, ternary exists & may even be MORE COMPUTATIONALLY EFFICIENT than binary! In this presentation, we will dig into how ternary computing actually works, why ternary lost the popularity contest with binary, & whether ternary can make a comeback through various emerging technologies like IOTA.


Topics:

-History of Ternary (Base3) Computing

-Ternary vs. Binary

-Why did Ternary fail to catch on?

-Will Ternary make a comeback?
