Read the following four bullets and you'll understand what the web co-processor is about:
- A person opens a webpage in his browser
- The persons browser is now a core in the web co-processor
If you are thinking botnet, you are forgiven. The idea is similar, but the intent different. Although I came up with the idea independently, I have found out that other people have thought about similar ideas before.
I'm serious about this idea. I think the idea of massive numbers of transient cores and memory offer some very interesting challenges. I'm keeping a lid on the ideas I have for the web co-processor, but you can follow my github repostitory to get updates as stuff happens. Action is expected to be sporadic but relatively intense.
