For many years, it's been hard to commercialize "MRAM" memory chips because of their unpredictability. But a startup, Spin Memory, is betting that the randomness operating in MRAM might make it an ideal chip for machine learning.
You might think electricity and liquids don't mix, but an immersive-cooling company has other ideas.
ZDNet's Tiernan Ray explains that a special mind of data memory called MRAM, for magnetic random access memory, has taken years to commercialize. Startup spin memory thinks the key to making it work is to take advantage of the inherent randomness in MRAM. Viewed from that perspective, the chip could actually accelerate AI applications, giving it special appeal. Read more: https://zd.net/2Vmar3i
