  • Patent number: 11126374
    Abstract: Technologies for stochastic associative search operations in memory (e.g., a three-dimensional cross-point memory) include a compute device. The compute device has a memory including a matrix that stores individually addressable bit data and is formed by rows and columns. The compute device receives a request to retrieve a subset of the bit data stored in the matrix. The request includes a search key indicative of the subset of bit data, and the search key is formed on a same axis as the rows. The compute device identifies one or more candidate data sets in the matrix based on a search for matching bit data of the search key with bit data in one or more of the columns. The compute device outputs the identified candidate data sets.

  • Patent number: 11074008
    Abstract: Technologies for performing a hyper-dimensional operation in a memory of the compute device include a memory and a memory controller. The memory controller is configured to receive a query from a requestor and determine, in response to a receipt of the query, a key hyper-dimensional vector associated with the query, perform a hyper-dimensional operation to determine a reference hyper-dimensional vector associated with a value to the key. The memory controller is further configured to perform a nearest neighbor search by searching columns of a stochastic associative array of a hyper-dimensional vector table in the memory, identify a closest matching row in the stochastic associative array relative to the reference hyper-dimensional vector, wherein the closest matching row indicates a closest matching value hyper-dimensional vector, and output a value associated with the closest matching value hyper-dimensional vector.
