Nebula at a glance:
Nebula Project is a research program funded by GSRT-ELIDEK (GR), hosted by the Dept. Informatics & Telecommunications of the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens and particularly the Optical Communications & Photonics Technology Laboratory, whereas it is supported by the Dept. of Photonic & Quantum Sciences of Heriot-Watt University.
It focus on the design, optimisation and development of fully isomorphic to biological structures photonic neurons with ultra-fast response and marginal power consumption. These structures will be incorporated to a electro-optic scheme so as to mimic in the optical domain artificial sensorimotor processing and exploit disruptive computational paradigms like the Reservoir Computing Concept.
Its long-term vision is to provide an alternative path for computation harvesting the merits of photonics and neuromoprhic engineering and transforming them to a new paradigm
