Abstract:

During the contract period, we have studied architecture, algorithm, and system issues pertaining to the implementation of optoelectronic technology for Artificial Intelligence AI and Neural Intelligence NI. As a result, we have developed the Programmable Opto-Electronic Multiprocessor POEM system. We have demonstrated the superiority of the POEM architecture over VLSI and other optical systems in many applications. We have developed or modified parallel AI algorithms for efficient implementation on POEM. Finally, we are currently assembling a prototype POEM system and subsystems necessary for future POEM systems.
