From 2008 to 2012, something radical happened. Moore’s law died while machine learning took off. The age of AI began.

“Memristor” vs “Transistor” interest over time, as measured by Google Scholar results per year.

AI of the near future will be built on a new class of hardware due to the computational demands of synaptic processing. The next Moore’s law will be driven by the need for AI synapses. [More]

Memristors can unify memory and processing. This reduces or eliminates memory-processor communication and consequently greatly reduces the energy required for synaptic operations. [More]

Given the exponentially increasing use of compute in AI (doubling every 3.5 months) and the serious consequences of the technology, it is important that teachers and students learn about the technology.
