Abstract
Neuromorphic photonics is an emerging field at the intersection of photonics and neuromorphic engineering, with the goal of producing accelerated processors that combine the information processing capacity of neuromorphic processing architectures and the speed and bandwidth of photonics. It is motivated by the widening gap between current computing capabilities and computing needs that result from the limitations of conventional, microelectronic processors. Here, I will present these challenges, describe photonic neural-network approaches being developed by our lab and others, and offer a glimpse at this fields future.
