An instruction by any other name

From the article: "To address this issue, low-overhead compression techniques can be used."

I'm having trouble determining, based on the rest of the article, what makes the output of these compression techniques any different from instructions. --Damian Yerrick (talk | stalk) 21:43, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

At a guess, flexibility and dynamicism? One is locked into the current instruction set, but one's compression techniques can change the encoding, make different tradeoffs, and do even more low-level JITing. --Gwern (contribs) 00:07 23 June 2010 (GMT)

A little bit far too technical maybe

The article needs some cleanup to make it more understandable to someone who isn't an engineer. Do you know any good books or other sources explaining the NISC technology? Sofia Koutsouveli (talk) 12:50, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
