Interesting concept: using logical principles from ancient scripture to improve computational performance in electronic devices. I’m aware of a few religious traditions that codify math in their practices, such as Islamic Sufism, so I’m not too surprised that the Indian Sutras might, also.

“By using this technique, an increase in speed up to ten or even 15 times the original can be achieved. “A code written on 8051 series of microcontroller (using Vedic Mathematics) with 12MHz crystal to perform square of a two-digit number takes only 18 microseconds to generate an answer. Any other faster microcontroller, or even a PC, takes more than 200 microseconds in general mathematical methods. This almost eliminates the need of DSP microcontrollers,” says P. Chow Reddy of Interleaved Technologies, Hyderabad.”
