  abstract =     "NAND Flash memory is a multi-billion dollar industry
                 which is projected to continue to show significant
                 growth until at least 2017. Devices such as
                 smart-phones, tablets and Solid State Drives use NAND
                 Flash since it has numerous advantages over Hard Disk
                 Drives including better performance, lower power
                 consumption, and lower weight. However, storage
                 locations within Flash devices have a limited working
                 lifetime, as they slowly degrade through use,
                 eventually becoming unreliable and failing. The number
                 of times a location can be programmed is termed its
                 endurance, and can vary significantly, even between
                 locations within the same device. There is currently no
                 technique available to predict endurance, resulting in
                 manufacturers placing extremely conservative
                 specifications on their Flash devices. We perform
                 symbolic regression using Genetic Programming to
                 estimate the endurance of storage locations, based only
                 on the duration of program and erase operations
                 recorded from them. We show that the quality of
                 estimations for a device can be refined and improved as
                 the device continues to be used, and investigate a
                 number of different approaches to deal with the
                 significant variations in the endurance of storage
                 locations. Results show this technique's huge potential
                 for real-world application.",
