Session Infomation

Recently, there has been strong interest and exciting progress in the field that combines photonics and artificial intelligence. It has been shown that artificial intelligence, including machine learning and deep learning, can significantly accelerate the discovery, design, and deployment of various photonic structures, materials, devices, and systems. The topics of the session include but are not limited to:
  • Machine learning and deep learning for the design of photonic materials, such as metamaterials/metasurfaces, topological photonic materials, and photonic crystals
  • Inverse design of photonic structures and devices by advanced optimization methods
  • Optical sensing, imaging, communication, and spectroscopy empowered by machine learning and deep learning
  • Metamaterials and integrated photonics for optical computing and information processing
  • Optical neural networks and neuromorphic photonics

Submitted Articles

Note: The following submitted articles are not guaranteed to be scheduled in the final program at this stage. The final presentation type and arranged session will be decided by Technical Program Committee.
