Summer School on AI for Optical Networks & Neuromorphic Photonics for AI Acceleration

Beginn: 06.09.2021
Ende: 10.09.2021

Online Event


The first edition of Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institut (HHI) summer school on “AI for Optical Networks & Neuromorphic Photonics for AI Acceleration” will be held online from the 6th to the 10th of September 2021. This summer school provides a set of tutorials, invited talks, and panels delivered by the key experts from academia and industry to address the current challenges maximizing the benefits of AI and ML while considered for optical networks and to discuss the benefits that photonics can bring to AI acceleration tasks.

The event is structured in five days: the first three days focus on the use-cases of AI/ML for optical networks, the fourth day focuses on photonics for AI acceleration, and the fifth day hosts a hackathon covering a few AI/ML tasks for autonomous and zero-touch optical transmission and networking. The 2021 summer school will feature lecturers including:
