SEL, the crystalline OS with its extremely low off-state current can be applied to an OS memory that can store a number of data (levels) (multi-level OS memory). The OS memory can also be used as an analog memory. We suggest the effectiveness of OS memories to AI. Neural networks resembling human brains are widely used for AI. In the neural networks, analog data is processed by a multiply-accumulate operation of a weight coefficient (coupling factor or multiplier) and input data (multiplicand), and large-scale parallel arithmetic is needed. In the case of arithmetic by digital circuits, accumulation in a memory of data as a result of the arithmetic and numerous circuits are necessary; thus access to the memory is problematic to the operation speed. Mixed analog-digital processing is expected to bring an efficient AI, but so far there has been no ideal memory that meets the demand of size and accuracy.  SEL succeeded in fabricating a crystalline OS-LSI using a high-accuracy analog memory, which enables analog arithmetic in neural network. Therefore, it is possible to incorporate an AI function into a chip with scaled-down circuitry and low power consumption.
