Silicon Chip Distributes Optical Signals for Potential Use in Neural Networks

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
GAITHERSBURG, Md., July 31, 2018 — A silicon chip that distributes optical signals precisely across a miniature grid could lead to a novel design for neural networks. A research team from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) proposes to use light, rather than conventional electronics, as a signaling medium for artificial neural networks. The use of light would eliminate interference due to electrical charge, and the light signals would travel faster and farther. NIST's grid-on-a-chip distributes light signals precisely, showcasing a potential new design for neural networks. The...Read full article
