Lyric Semiconductor, a Cambridge, Mass.-based startup that was spun out of MIT in 2006, today announced a revolutionary new approach to processing data called probability processing. It wants to make chips that are fit for a world drowning in information and dealing with data deluge.

The company was started by Dr. Ben Vigoda, a chip industry veteran, and MIT Scientist and chip industry veteran David Reynolds. It’s backed by Analog Devices CEO and lead partner of Stata Ventures, Ray Stata, with more than $20 million in funding from DARPA. It’s coming out of stealth today.

The most common way to improve and ensure data quality is through standardisation techniques.

This is the view of a recent report on the issue of product data by The Data Warehousing Institute (TWDI), reports Information Management.

It stated that regardless of the type of data being examined, standardisation can help to support the diverse and complex standards of business information.

The report added that product data quality can be further enhanced with the addition of as much extra information as possible.
