Tiny ‘Hurricane-like’ magnetic swirls could hold key to next AI breakthrough — material found in rust could help power energy efficient, brain-like processors capable of running at hundreds of Gigahertz

Researchers from Oxford University’s Department of Physics have made a discovery that could pave the way for the next big breakthrough in AI. 

The team has successfully created ‘hurricane-like’ magnetic whirls in hematite, the main component of rust, which could potentially power energy-efficient, brain-like processors running at hundreds of Gigahertz.
