Abstract: P34.00004 : p-Bits for Probabilistic Spin Logic*
4:18 PM–4:54 PM
View Presentation Abstract
Correlated p-bits are of course no substitute for entangled q-bits, but we will argue that they can be used as a poor man's q-bits that address a broad class of important problems including inference, “invertible” logic and optimization, using the same quantum algorithms but with added versatility. Further we will show that existing embedded MRAM technology with minor modifications can be used to implement room temperature p-bits and build large scale p-circuits .
