Jelena Vuckovic discusses how combining state-of-the-art optimization and machine learning techniques with high-speed electromagnetic solvers offers a new approach to "inverse" design and implementation of classical and quantum photonic circuits in a variety of materials and with superior properties, including robustness to errors in fabrication and temperature, compact footprints, novel functionalities, and high efficiencies.

***This presentation premiered during the 2021 Photonics Spectra Conference Optics track. For information on upcoming Photonics Media events, see our event calendar here.
