Emerging research device technologies might first appear in special applications that can extend conventional general-purpose processors along one of several axes. These applications could optimize the performance of future workloads such as recognition, mining, and synthesis by using the unique nonlinear output characteristics associated with the emerging research devices. However, a new device technology might emerge that, by way of first supplementing conventionally scaled CMOS, could eventually offer a highly scalable new information-processing paradigm.
