    Memory and logic devices in processing of information employ deterministically correct binary manipulation by a large ensemble of small devices. Smallest critical dimensions on a chip are in nanometers and the largest are in centimeters. Within the device themselves, 3-D, 2-D, 1-D, or even 0-D effects and their properties may be employed. This integrated circuit ensemble in its present form manipu... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses the two main resistive switching (RS) memory technologies: phase-change memory (PCM) and redox-based resistive random access memory (ReRAM). It will review the basic concepts, the initial promises, and current state of the art, with focus on possible scaling pathways for low-power operation and dense, true 3-D memory. Recent physical insights and new potential concepts will be... View full abstract»

    Orbital occupancy control in correlated oxides allows the realization of new electronic phases and collective state switching under external stimuli. The resultant structural and electronic phase transitions provide an elegant way to encode, store, and process information. In this review, we examine the utilization of Mott metal-to-insulator transitions, for memory and neuromorphic devices. We emp... View full abstract»

    Content-addressable memory (CAM) and associative memory (AM) are types of storage structures that allow searching by content as opposed to searching by address. Such memory structures are used in diverse applications ranging from branch prediction in a processor to complex pattern recognition. In this paper, we review the emerging challenges and opportunities in implementing different varieties of... View full abstract»

    Computer memories continue to serve the role that they first served in the electronic discrete variable automatic computer (EDVAC) machine documented by John von Neumann, namely that of supplying instructions and operands for calculations in a timely manner. As technology has made possible significantly larger and faster machines with multiple processors, the relative distance in processor cycles ... View full abstract»

    The brain carries out enormously diverse and complex information processing operations to deal with a constantly varying world on a power budget of about 12-20 W. We argue that this efficiency is achieved in part through the dedication of specialized circuit elements and architectures to specific computational tasks, in a hierarchy stretching from the scale of neurons to scale of the entire brain,...

    The Bayesian paradigm has provided a useful conceptual theory for understanding perceptual computation in the brain. While the detailed neural mechanisms of Bayesian inference are not fully understood, recent computational and neurophysiological works have illuminated the underlying computational principles and representational architecture. The fundamental insights are that the visual system is o... View full abstract»

    A striking difference between brain-inspired neuromorphic processors and current von Neumann processor architectures is the way in which memory and processing is organized. As information and communication technologies continue to address the need for increased computational power through the increase of cores within a digital processor, neuromorphic engineers and scientists can complement this ne...

    Cognitive tasks are essential for the modern applications of electronics, and rely on the capability to perform inference. The Von Neumann bottleneck is an important issue for such tasks, and emerging memory devices offer an opportunity to overcome this issue by fusing computing and memory, in nonvolatile instant on/off systems. A vision for accomplishing this is to use brain-inspired architecture... View full abstract»

    In quantum information processing, the fundamental rules of information representation are different than in the classical setting. The fundamental unretrievability of some forms of information from quantum memory enable unique capabilities that enhance privacy and security. Unique correlations between quantum bits, referred to as quantum entanglement, enable fundamentally faster algorithms for im... View full abstract»
