Memory that learns could help tomorrow’s intelligent computers

Knowm hopes its new memristors will lead to new types of computers Knowm’s memristor module could lead to intelligent computers. Credit: Knowm IDG News Service Jan 20, 2016 3:00 AM As researchers try to build more complex computers that get closer to emulating the way the human brain works, one of the areas of focus is memory. Existing chips, hard disks and tape drives are great at storing large amounts of data, but a new breed of memory chip called a memristor could go a step further: helping the artificial intelligence systems of tomorrow actually understand the data and make more use of it. Memristors could help computers connect the dots to identify diseases or help self-driving cars recognize objects based on probabilities and associations. Memristors are best used in machine-learning…
