Memristor technology brings about an analog revolution

We are always driven to try to do smarter things faster. It’s human nature. In our data centers, we layer machine learning algorithms over big and fast data streams to create that special competitive business edge (or greater social benefit!). Yet for all its processing power, performance and capacity, today’s digital-based computing and storage can’t compare to what goes on inside each of our very own, very analog brains, which vastly outstrip digital architectures by six, seven or even eight orders of magnitude. If we want to compute at biological scales and speeds, we must take advantage of new forms of hardware that transcend the strictly digital. Many applications of machine learning are based on examining data’s inherent patterns and behavior, and then using that intelligence to classify what we…
