We demonstrate associative memory operations reminiscent of the brain using nonvolatile spintronics devices. Antiferromagnet-ferromagnet bilayer-based Hall devices, which show analogue-like spin-orbit torque switching under zero magnetic fields and behave as artificial synapses, are used. An artificial neural network is used to associate memorized patterns from their noisy versions. We develop a network consisting of a fieldprogrammable gate array and 36 spin-orbit torque devices. An effect of learning on associative memory operations is successfully confirmed for several 3 ' 3-block patterns. A discussion on the present approach for realizing spintronics-based artificial intelligence is given.
