Stan Williams on Memristive Applications [NPR]

Dating from May 2008, this NPR story was done shortly after the discovery by Stan Williams and HP Labs of a memristive material. From the synopsis:

“The possibility of such a circuit element, known as the “memristor,” was first described in 1971, but no one was able to find a device with the properties of that missing element. Now, a group of scientists at HP Labs has found that in nanoscale materials, the “memristance” property becomes easier to see.

The finding could lead to lower power, instant-on computers, as well as novel types of circuitry. HP Senior Fellow Stanley Williams, one of the discoverers of the modern memristor, talks about the find and its potential applications.”
