MemComputing Announces Collaboration with Los Alamos National Lab

Paper written in collaboration with LANL Published in Science Advances

San Diego, January 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/- MemComputing, Inc., developer of disruptive high-performance computing technology, announces the collaboration on a research paper written in partnership with scientists from Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), specifically The Center for Nonlinear Studies and the T4 group. The paper, published in Science Advances, is titled, “Global minimization via classical tunneling assisted by collective force field formation.”

MemComputing’s main patent identifies the potential use of memristors in the formation of MemComputing’s proprietary Self-organizing Logic Circuits. LANL researchers have an ongoing collaboration with Dr. Fabio Lorenzo Traversa, CTO of MemComputing due to his expertise in memristors, nanoscale physics, optimization, and machine learning. 

 “This study helped to uncover and highlight some aspects of the physics of complex systems that we leverage in our circuit designs”, said Dr. Traversa. “It has been exciting to show that we can have effective tunneling phenomena in networks of memristors and this helps convergence to the global minimum of an intractable landscape”.

Dr.  Francesco Caravelli, a scientist from the Condensed Matter and Complex Systems group with Los Alamos added, “The findings of this study are very exciting as they demonstrate the first realization of classical tunneling in an a-thermal, passive system moving in an effective potential. This mechanism is appealing for its physical relevance in nanoscale physics and for its possible applications in optimization, Monte Carlo schemes, and machine learning.”

MemComputing continues to support the effort and looks forward to potential future collaborations as well.
