About Rapport

Rapport Incorporated offers silicon solutions based on Kilocore, the world's first parallel computer on a chip. New chip technology is needed in today's world to address the following challenges: Heat-Laptop computers are too warm to rest on laps; Energy use-Smartphones last less than a day between recharges; and Complexity-Chips are almost impossible to fix and new chips cost millions. Kilocore technology addresses these shortcomings by putting many simple, tiny processors into a single multicore chip. These processors"dozens, hundreds or thousands"can all operate at once, in parallel. This fundamental change in computing benefits system designers and end users. Rapport is currently developing products based on its Kilocore technology for end-to-end parallelism. Rapport's unique Kilocore chip architecture is the basis for the first parallel computer on a single chip.

Chess: Rapport closes in on Candidates as six-year-old steals show at Blackpool

Mar 18, 2022

Richard Rapport is near to becoming one of the eight candidates to challenge for Magnus Carlsen’s crown, while six-year-old Kushal Jakhria tied for first at the Blackpool U1850 Intermediate despite being the lowest ranked player Six-year-old Kushal Jakhria in action at the ChessFest rapid play day. Photograph: Andrew Moss Six-year-old Kushal Jakhria in action at the ChessFest rapid play day. Photograph: Andrew Moss Fri 18 Mar 2022 04.00 EDT Richard Rapport is near to claiming one of the two remaining places in the 2022 Candidates after the Hungarian defeated Russia’s Dmitry Andreikin 1.5-0.5 in Belgrade in the second-leg final of the Fide Grand Prix. The action now moves to the third and final leg in Berlin from 21 March to 4 April, which Rapport will sit out while his rivals battle. The decisive game had a remarkable climax. Rapport had the chance for an immediate draw by repetition, but instead allowed his clock to run down to two minutes before opting for unfathomable complications which turned out in his favour. Berlin in March-April will have 16 players, four preliminary groups, and one group of death which contains Andreikin as well as the two Americans, Hikaru Nakamura and Levon Aronian, who were first and second at Berlin in February. The arithmetic shows that two of this trio will be eliminated, while the fourth player, Grigoriy Oparin, is potentially the kingmaker. 3807: Qi Chen v Kalyan Arjun, Asian Universities championship 2021. White to move and win. Just a slightly disguised standard tactic which every serious player should know. Depending on what happens in the group of death, the other significant contenders – Anish Giri, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave and Leinier Domínguez – may still be in the running. However, a scenario where Oparin plays harder against the US duo than against his compatriot looks likely, and that could prove significant in a sprint distance of six rounds. The elite action moves back online this Saturday when Magnus Carlsen is top seeded in the Charity Cup, the second event in the Meltwater Champions Tour. Rapport is taking part, as are China’s world, No 3 Ding Liren, the world woman champion, Ju Wenjun, and England’s Gawain Jones. Games start at 5pm. Months further on, the 44th chess Olympiad, removed from Moscow, has been confirmed for Chennai, India, in July-August. Last weekend’s Blackpool Conference at the Imperial Hotel was England’s first major over-the-board weekend congress of 2022. Its entry of 281 was down on pre-pandemic levels, but still a healthy number as 143 took part in an overlapping rapid at Golders Green. GM Danny Gormally, rated nearly 100 points or more higher than the rest of the field at 2520, was the clear favourite for the £700 first prize, but the England No 12 misfired somewhat, conceded two draws, and had to settle for 4/5 and a seven-way tie for top honours. In this file of games from the Open, Gormally’s entertaining round-three win is recommended. Blackpool’s most significant result was away from the Open, in the Under 1850 Intermediate (ECF 150 in old money). Six-year-old Kushal Jakhria, 70th and lowest ranked at the start, took a half-point bye on Friday evening, then defeated all his four adult opponents on Saturday and Sunday for 4.5/5 and a third share of the £500 first prize. His victims were no pushovers, either. Michael Connor (round three) had won the 2018 Blackpool Inter, while Bob Kane (round four) had won the Scarborough 2021 Major. Jakhria already made an appearance in this column when he became London under-8 champion at age five. Like England’s best-known teen player Shreyas Royal, he is a pupil of the Pointer School, Blackheath, and learnt further chess skills at his local Charlton club, which has a fine reputation for junior talent. Jakhria’s coach, Fide Master Alexis Harakis, has helped his pupil become a specialist in the Sveshnikov Sicilian and on the white side of a classical King’s Indian. His Lichess online rating is already above 2200. The English Chess Federation currently runs an Accelerator Programme for 10 of its most promising players, for which one selection criterion is to be in at least the top five in their UK age group. None of the programme’s current members is younger than 11, and Royal is the only one to have achieved a high world ranking and to have medalled in a world or European championship. In the golden years of English chess, some of the most gifted talents emerged at eight or younger, like Nigel Short, Michael Adams, Luke McShane, David Howell, Jovanka Houska and others. They were given special opportunities, mentored and coached with a view to becoming GMs early in their careers, and achieved their targets.
