Photonics and AI
With the advent of digital technology and big data, artificial intelligence (AI) has quickly become an important tool for photonics research. As evidenced by the sharp rise of AI-related publications in photonics journals, AI-related techniques such as deep learning, artificial neural networks, and evolutionary algorithms combined with optical techniques such as sensing, spectroscopy, and imaging have revolutionized healthcare, automotive industry, finance, video games, defense, and security. This Special Topic provides a valuable forum where researchers will be able to share their most recent, novel findings, and understanding of basic principles, advanced techniques, and applications of photonics with AI.
