While memristors represent a potential revolution in electronic-circuit theory akin to the invention of the transistor, it will take a killer application to get it off the ground.

adding up voltage gives flux, and adding up currebnt yields charge, not the other way around (I guess Prof. Porod has been misquoted). I have a fundamental issue with the so-called cross-bar. Anyone working in memory technology for some time knows there isn't such a thing as a selector-less memory. Just draw the array and look at sneak currents running all over the place in program and read and you some simple math will tell you you need a selector. The 'old dream' to have memory arrays w/o selector (hence on top of Si and removing some, not all integration issues) is known to stay a dream forever and we have to continue integrating with diodes and/or transistors, see e.g. the PCM paper at IEDM 2009 by Intel. The use of memory elements with analog capability as a neural network element is also not new and was already suggested by Prof. Chenming Hu from Berkeley in the 80s using... floating gate (hence Flash-like) memory cells. I don't see the novelty in this approach.
