A prototype computer built using a magnetic material called skyrmion has been programmed to recognize handwritten digits.This method may be particularly energy efficient

A new type of computer can use the behavior of magnetic particles to recognize handwritten digits. If made smaller and faster, it should be able to process information in an energy-efficient manner.
Magnetic material can be thought of as a grid of strips magnet, each bar magnet represents a particle. One type, called a skyrmion, spins like a bar magnet. Researchers have long thought skyrmions could be used to make energy-efficient electronics because it doesn’t require…
