Traditional von Neumann computers have separate processing and memory units. This necessitates frequent shuttling of data between these units when performing computational tasks. The resulting latency and energy cost is a key challenge especially given the recent explosive growth in highly data-centric applications such as those related to artificial intelligence. In-memory computing is an emerging non-von Neumann paradigm where certain computational tasks are performed in the memory itself by exploiting the physical attributes of the memory devices. Memristive devices that store information in terms of their resistance values are particularly well suited for in-memory computing. These devices when organized within a computational memory unit can be used to perform a range of tasks from logical and arithmetic operations to stochastic computing. In this chapter we introduce this topic with an emphasis on …
