PIM (Processing in Memory) will go with Analog or Digital?

The unprecedented growth in computing and processing has led to massive amounts of data movement from off-chip units to on-chip memories. To deal with the complex processing, shall we use analog circuits or digital circuits? If digital, what are the popular techniques and the main bottleneck? If analog, what are the emerging solutions and the design challenges? In this panel discussion session, we will have 6-7 experts as the panelists to share their view.
