AI is one of the emerging topics. AI encompasses many technologies, such as machine learning, cloud computing and big data. It overlaps considerably with integrated photonics. AI enhances remote sensing, image segmentation/recognition, etc, with current rapid development of new photonic devices, many AI based devices and systems, like robots, autonomous driving, unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAVs), and drones, rely heavily on photonic sensors, imaging, photonic networks and telecommunications to realize practical and smart functionality. For this session, which is trying to bridge the understanding between the photonics and AI community, we also encourage graduate students to learn this emerging opportunity.
