Abstract : Optical disks can be utilized in a variety of systems that take advantage of the inherent parallel accessibility to the stored data. We experimentally demonstrate the use of parallel access to data stored on optical disks in digital optical computing, several types of neural networks including optical and optoelectronic neural networks, image classifiers, and image correlators.
