    Light and Superconductors Join to Boost AI

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    At the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), researchers proposed an approach to large-scale artificial intelligence that focuses on integrating photonic components with superconducting electronics as opposed to semiconducting electronics. The work has the potential to boost the function and scale of silicon-based AI chips and optoelectronic advancements as a result.

    To address problems with the fabrication of silicon chips with electronic and photonic circuits, often used to study cognition, the researchers considered the type of materials used in the process.

    “We argue that by operating at low temperature and using superconducting electronic circuits, single-photon detectors, and silicon light sources,…
