A lot of processing involved in, for example, Tensorflow, resembles
four quadrant balanced modulation (or two quadrant balanced
modulation if a reLU is used) in analogue electronics. The
circuitry (using matched transistors) can supply a more or less
instananeous measurement of the
process it applies.
A team recently produced a 'gate sensor' that can allegedly detect
the movement of individual electrons.
It occurs to me that it would be quite useful to have the
of an operational amplifier, or several, that are fully analogue but
connected to the measurable digital logic of computer interfaces,
but not through something as clumsy and detached as ADC and
Being able to instantaneously measure actual electron and hole
density and flow at the terminals of an analogue circuit would be
ideal. At the very minimum it'd be interesting to use transistors in
their linear working region.
