Everywhere you can use an algorithm. Why not try to figure out how to use machine learning.
This gives me the following ideas.
In error detection and correction which is a very important part of the Internet. Why not try machine learning or neural nets. This for transmitting and storing of data.
Maybe in ”inexact computing” which I assume has a lot of errors. Why not use machine learning to get a better efficiency.
In SSD’s or in harddrive storage which uses RAID. Here one should definitely implement Smart Raid. Based on machine learning. For error detection and correction.
If this works and is efficient. Then there could possibly exist something like ”inexact storage”. But that is just a guess.
