We are on the verge of amazing breakthroughs in the field of mathematics and computation! And our company, GWC, is in need of solid state physicists, bio-medical engineers, and a talented instruction encoders.
What is an instruction encoder? Our new invention is so revolutionary that it necessitates an entirely new profession. What does it take to be an instruction encoder? An understanding of mathematics is a must, and moxie is a plus! What will you be asked to do? You will work directly with our new invention, making it perform amazing feats of computation!
We can not reveal to much about what we are call our Procedural Resolution Sequencing System. The fundamentals of the machine are well grounded in scientific literature, but required advancements for its implementation are just now being realized. Now out team faces the biggest challenge: reducing the size of the components. The fundamental component is a "door" of sorts, that controls the flow of bioinfotrons (yet another amazing invention from GWC, short for biological information automaton). As bioinfotrons make their way through tracks controlled by these doors, simple computations can be preformed. We are convinced that, once the sizes have been reduced enough, we will be able to combine hundreds, nay, thousands of these doors and have bioinfotrons cycle through them multiple times a minute!
At GWC, our focus is always on the horizon. Right now, the Procedural Resolution Sequencing System must be configured to perform a specific type of task, a major drawback. However, we believe that within the next twenty years, we will be able to build a General Purpose Procedural Resolution Sequencing System: one that can handle a variety of workloads with minimal reconfiguration. Our top scientist, Dr. Tlan Auring, has demonstrated that it is theoretically possible to create a Procedural Resolution Sequencing System that can emulate all other possible Procedural Resolution Sequencing Systems!
