On your wavelength is a physics podcast where they discuss outstanding papers published in the Nature Portfolio journal. Last November they invited to a special LIVE podcast, broadcasted during the Science week of Berlin, our colleagues Adonis Bogris and Charis Mesaritakis, from the University of the Aegean.
The topic of the podcast was about neuromorphic computing, which can be interpreted as biologically inspired computing facilitated by deep learning algorithms. The paper they discussed, carried out in the context of NEoteRIC project and published in Nature – Communication, brings the implementation of this new way of computing one step closer to real-world devices. The authors use light and a clever filtering system that could allow high-bandwidth communications and high-speed imaging.
