Jinghui Yang, Western Digital, USA

Silicon photonics is ramping up quickly and driving an increasing number of applications, ranging from datacom to telecom, from high-performance computing to artificial intelligence. Benefiting from the increased energy efficiency, bandwidth density and lower link latencies, silicon photonics promises to shape the future landscape of communication and computation. We have seen broad interests and a significant amount of effort committed in both industry and academia. In this special session, forefront researchers from both industry and academia will present their latest progress in high-speed and high-bandwidth optical I/O, artificial intelligence and high-performance computing applications with an aim to give an overview of the landscape, discover challenges to be addressed and propose potential solutions.
