New chip can determine the likelihood that a person will purchase a particular kind of book or that a particular e-mail message is spam.

NY Times: Startup Lyric Semiconductor has created a new chip that can solve probability problems using just a handful of transistors. Using technology originally developed by MIT, the company's chips can make better predictions about what type of book a person might buy, what kind of search results they want to see, and whether their e-mail messages might be spam.

The company has $20 million in funding, most of which comes from the Department of Defense and a "three-letter government agency."
