Research led by Monash and RMIT Universities in Melbourne has found a way to create an advanced photonic integrated circuit that builds bridges between data superhighways, revolutionizing the connectivity of current optical chips and replacing bulky 3D-optics with a wafer thin slice of silicon.
This development, published in the journal Nature Photonics, has the ability to warp-speed the global advancement of artificial intelligence and offers significant real world applications such as:
- Safer driverless cars capable of instantly interpreting their surroundings
- Enabling AI to more rapidly diagnose medical conditions
- Making natural language processing even faster for apps such as Google Homes, Alexa and Siri
- Smaller switches for reconfiguring optical networks that carry our internet to get data where it's needed faster
