Ultra Low Energy Computer Memory for AI Learning in Medical and Other Applications

The CEA-Leti-based team’s uses machine learning on RRAM to get 100,000 times less energy usage. They use randomness instead of trying to prevent it. This allows in-situ learning to be realized in a highly efficient fashion through the application of nanosecond voltage pulses to nanoscale memory devices. Compared to a CMOS implementation of its algorithm, …
