In this work, we propose a novel nano-scale architecture that performs matrix multiplications. Matrix multiplications are the basic operations of machine learning (ML) algorithms and, thus, the presented approach enables their application at the nano-scale, for example inside the human body in the Internet of Bio-Nano-Things (IoBNT). It is based on the molecule exchange between connected compartments and introducing chemical reactions in some of them. The matrix entries are solely defined by the volumes of the compartment. We provide a detailed mathematical description of the stochastic and dynamic behavior of the system. Moreover, we derive design guidelines for the proposed architecture. Finally, we validated the proposed approach through particle-based simulations.
