Photonic Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs)

Supervisors: Prof. Ian O’Connor (EC Lyon), Dr Fabio Pavanello (EC Lyon) and Prof. Arnan Mitchell (RMIT)

Option 1 Photonic CNN for large-scale image processing

Project: In this project we will consider implementations of high-speed low-latency photonic convolutional neural networks (CNNs) integrated on-chip based on Lithium Niobate on Insulator (LNOI) platforms. We will analyze required performance of key components which will be developed at RMIT. System-level simulations will be carried out with models built on the experimental data. Systems will be fabricated at RMIT and demonstrators will be tested at INL/RMIT for large-scale image processing applications. 

 

Option 2 Photonic CNN for low-power edge applications

Project: In this project we will consider implementations of low-power energy-efficient photonic convolutional neural networks (CNNs) integrated on-chip based on Lithium Niobate on Insulator (LNOI) platforms. We will analyze required performance of key components which will be developed at RMIT. System-level simulations will be carried out with models built on the experimental data. Systems will be fabricated at RMIT and demonstrators will be tested at INL/RMIT for edge computing applications. 

 

Option 3 Photonic CNN for safety-critical applications

Project: In this project we will consider implementations of robust photonic convolutional neural networks (CNNs) integrated on-chip based on Lithium Niobate on Insulator (LNOI) platforms. We will analyze required performance of key components which will be developed at RMIT. System-level simulations will be carried out with models built on the experimental data. Systems will be fabricated at RMIT and demonstrators will be tested at INL/RMIT for environment-sensitive safety-critical applications.
