Workshop on Optical Computing: current / emerging approaches & applications

Research in photonic computing is experiencing a period of Rennaissance and is now increasingly considered for machine learning thanks to its intrinsic scalability, speed, and low power consumption. Several companies have been founded in the last couple of years to harness the potential of optics for computing.

Algorithms running on such new hardware have the potential to address the growing demand for machine learning and artificial intelligence in areas such as medical diagnosis, telecommunications, and high-performance and scientific computing.

The purpose of this Workshop is to bring the most up to date development in this exciting field, from both leading Academics and Companies.


Realization of a photonic controlled-NOT gate for use in quantum computing, Michelle, Ahshabazz.
