20:26 ceridwen Idiosyncrat, Having read the paper we were discussing yesterday, I agree with your impression about how they're handling recursion depth.  On the whole, I still remain unconvinced that Valiant's algorithm is viable without some further improvements.

20:27 ceridwen That said, this is an interesting set of slides about using Boolean matrix multiplication on GPUs---includes a reference to a O(n^3/log n) multiplication algorithm for Boolean matrices.

21:19 Idiosyncrat My impression was that they didn't solve all the problems with Valiant's, but I thought they might have solved some.
21:20 Idiosyncrat And they *were* the first investigators to not simply dismiss its possibilities as a practical algorithm.
