About This Video

This video was uploaded to the YouTube channel Singularity Prosperity in February 2018.

This video is the fifth in a multi-part series discussing computing. In this video, we’ll be discussing the gap between computing performance and memory and how this ‘memory wall’ is to be demolished.

[0:25-7:00] Starting off we'll look at, current different types of memory (SRAM, DRAM, NAND,...) and what their use cases and tradeoffs are. As well as, new types of memory that will break current paradigms, such as Optane memory and how all these types of memory can work together to yield performance boosts.

[7:00-9:40] Following that we'll discuss, improving data transfer mediums and protocols and their effect on decreasing the memory gap.
