Beyond Von Neumann: Applied Materials and Arm Lead DARPA-Funded Research on a Neuromorphic Switch for AI

Back in July, Applied Materials announced that we’d been selected by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop technology for AI. At the core of this project are the efforts of Applied Materials, Arm and Symetrix to develop a correlated electron switch. This of course begs the question, “what the heck is a correlated electron?”
