Research brings analog computers just one step from digital

Posted by in categories: computing, futurism

The future of computing may be analog.

The design of our everyday computers is good for reading email and gaming, but today’s problem-solving computers are working with vast amounts of data. The ability to both store and process this information can lead to performance bottlenecks due to the way computers are built.

The next computer revolution might be a new kind of hardware, called processing-in-memory (PIM), an emerging computing paradigm that merges the memory and processing unit and does its computations using the physical properties of the machine—no 1s or 0s needed to do the processing digitally.
