MEMCOMPUTING. Intermittency, quasiperiodicity and chaos in probe-induced ferroelectric domain switching : Nature Physics

Memristive materials and devices, which enable information storage and processing on one and the same physical platform, offer an alternative to conventional von Neumann computation architectures. 

Nima Dehghani‘s insight:

A very interesting article. The ability of this type of computing engine lies in its simultaneous ability to store and process information, similar to neurons and unlike the conventional Von Neumann architecture. Also, the scalability of such architecture is more attuned to low-energy systems like brain. Perhaps this is a good step forward toward a biologically-inspired computing architecture.
