 **Abstract**:​ The memory system is a fundamental performance and energy bottleneck in almost all computing systems. Recent system design, application,​ and technology trends that require more capacity, bandwidth, efficiency, and predictability out of the memory system make it an even more important system bottleneck. At the same time, DRAM and flash technologies are experiencing difficult technology scaling challenges that make the maintenance and enhancement of their capacity, energy efficiency, performance,​ and reliability significantly more costly with conventional techniques. In fact, recent reliability issues with DRAM, such as the RowHammer problem, are already threatening system security and predictability. We are at the challenging intersection where issues in memory reliability and performance are tightly coupled with not only system cost and energy efficiency but also system security. **Abstract**:​ The memory system is a fundamental performance and energy bottleneck in almost all computing systems.
