Abstract:

Neuromorphic engineering aims to develop hardware capable of unconventional computing by emulating the physiology of the neuronal network of a brain. The concept of brain-inspired photonics introduces the advantages of optical information processing into the neuromorphic engineering domain. Although the progress within this field is astonishing the optical approach addresses potentially limiting factors of more matured neuromorphic electronics. Many current efforts are focused on identifying the potential mechanisms for useful and flexible artificial neuron implementation.

In our research, we particularly refer to Spiking Neural Networks often denoted as 3rd generation networks. This notion reflects the promise of improvements in computational power efficiency by maintaining a more strict analogy to brain-like processing with trains of asynchronous spikes.

During my talk, I would like to give an extended introduction to the interdisciplinary field of neuromorphic engineering and later discuss our approach toward the realization of photonic spiking neurons based on exciton-polariton condensation in optical microcavities
