The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: “A data storage apparatus and a data prediction method thereof are provided. The data storage apparatus includes a memory unit and a prediction unit. The prediction unit acquires a plurality of access location data of a plurality of data access actions of a prior access history of the memory unit. The prediction unit analyzes the prior access history of the memory unit. The prediction unit performs a quantification process on the access location data to acquire a plurality of quantized data corresponding to the prior access history. The prediction unit predicts a data pre-accessing target of the memory unit according to the quantized data.”
