Nanomagnets can discern wine, and could slake AI’s thirst for energy

By analyzing the different characteristics of wines, such as acidity, fruitiness and bitterness (represented as colored flasks on the left), a novel AI system (center) successfully determined which type of wine it was (right). The AI system is based on magnetic devices known as “magnetic tunnel junctions,” and was designed and built by researchers at NIST, the University of Maryland and Western Digital. Credit: J.

Human brains process loads of information. When wine aficionados taste a new wine, neural networks in their brains process an array of data from each sip. Synapses in their neurons fire, weighing the …
