New research to work on solving AI’s ‘Memory Bottleneck’

A new modern magnetic memory device can help in solving the drawbacks of Artificial Intelligence which uses record-low current and is the smallest device.

A team of electrical engineers at Northwestern Engineering and the University of Messina in Italy have invented a tiny device that is capable of performing artificial intelligence problems and uses very low current as compared to other bigger devices that uses large amount of current. It could actually upkeep the surge of data-centric computing, that needs ever-increasing current, storage, and speed. According to these electrical engineering students, this device is based on antiferromagnetic (AFM) materials, and is the smallest of its kind ever validated and functions with record-low electrical current to write data.

The fact cannot be denied that the Artificial Intelligence is able to improvise all the systems in an efficient and precise way in every aspect like health care systems, society, safety and security, transportation etc., yet it can meet its potential only if computing supports it. The Artificial Intelligence requires all the best of the modern technologies like static random access memory (SRAM) or dynamic random access memory (DRAM) or Flash without which it is just like an ordinary computation.
