Photonic neuromorphic computing (2018)

Abstract:
My project aims to develop a brain-inspired computing platform based on our current photonic capabilities that is flexible enough to be useful for both neuroscience and computing. This is useful in two fronts: 1) it will help us understand brain function better, in particular the role of plasticity in brain dyamics and 2) it will provide an alternative platform tailored for brain-like learning that will help us accelerate our current machine learning capabilities.
