2nd Workshop on “Neuromorphic photonics and applications”

University of West Attica, 13th and 14th of July 2023

Brain inspired computing and its implementation at high throughput and low power consumption is the holy grail of the digital transition era. State of the art conventional computers face significant difficulties in keeping up with the exponentially growing amount of complex artificial intelligence tasks accompanied by vast amounts of data. Neuromorphic processors and especially their photonic implementation gain ground as promising accelerators for low latency, high bandwidth and low energy intelligent computing.

Following the first successful workshop on Neuromorphic Photonics , the 2nd workshop on “Neuromorphic photonics and applications” is organized by three EU funded projects (NEoteRIC H2020PROMETHEUS Horizon EuropePlasmoniAC H2020) and its goal is to bring together all research groups around the globe that are currently active in neuromorphic photonics. The workshop will be a 2-day event. All speakers are researchers representing significant groups in the field and will cover the subject in different aspects presenting the latest achievements in the fields of neuromorphic photonic engineering and optical neural networks.


A team of renowned experts from academia and industry will present the latest achievements in the rapidly evolving field of neuromorphic photonics and significant applications of neuromorphic technology in Artificial Intelligence
