There have been increasing demands on realizing computing hardware capable of addressing complex tasks that classical von-Neumann computers cannot readily execute. Here we show an unconventional computing scheme-probabilistic computing-based on a spintronics technology, which is promising to address various computationally hard problems. We present a proof-of-concept of the probabilistic computer with stochastic magnetic tunnel junctions, that can perform optimization problems at room temperature.
