A photonic processor that transmits data at the speed of light has been created

Experts from the National Research Institute (Canada) have created a photonic processor that transmits information by means of photons moving at the speed of light.
The technology is expected to take neural networks to a whole new level – for example, to make them work very, very fast. The optical neural network will be able to recognize and process large-scale data and images at ultra-high computational speeds exceeding ten trillion operations per second.
An optical neural network will be able to recognize and process large-scale data and images at an ultra-high computational speed exceeding ten trillion operations per second. According to the scientists, the processor shows promising results for machine learning tasks with big data in real-time.
The technology will find applications in areas such as face identification in cameras in real-time or, for example, will be suitable for the detection of pathologies in medical applications. The chip could also be integrated into unmanned cars, improving the performance of their systems.
