News │ PROMETHEUS was featured on Episode 6 “Mimicking the Brain” of the On Your Wavelength podcast. Editors: Cristiano Matricardi (Nature Communications) and Miranda Vinay (Communication Engineering).
Berlin, Germany (December 19th, 2022). On December 19th, Charis Mesaritakis (University of the Aegean), talked about the multipurpose photonic integrated circuit in the framework of the European Horizon funded project Prometheus.
“On Your Wavelength” is a podcast hosted by Springer Nature. Each episode deals with an article from the Nature Journal publications. On this occasion, a special live show was held during the Berlin Science Week 2022: a recent study in Communications Engineering presents a photonic montage to create a neural network.
Charis Mesaritakis (University of the Aegean) and Miranda Vinay (Communications Engineering in the field) discuss the latest developments in photonic neuromorphic computing and explore how this technology is inspired by the architecture of the human brain. You’ll gain valuable insights into how photonic neuromorphic computing could offer a more efficient and effective approach to computing tasks such as image and speech recognition.
In this episode, hosted by Cristiano Matricardi from Nature Communications, Charis Mesaritakis discusses the PROMETHEUS project, which aims to build a multi-purpose photonic integrated circuit that will deliver a unified photonic processor. The potential applications of such a processor are vast, ranging from AI and machine learning to advanced simulations and more.
