Weight Agnostic Neural Networks, a virtual presentation by Adam Gaier, Thursday October 15th, LightOn AI meetup #7

** Nuit Blanche is now on Twitter: @NuitBlog ** Ever since we started LightOn, we have been putting some emphasis on having great minds think how new algorithms are possible and how they can be enabled with our photonic chips.  We also have a regular meetup where we see how other great minds are devising new algorithms. Tomorrow, Thursday (October 15th)...

As The World Turns: Implementations now on ArXiv thanks to Paper with Code

** Nuit Blanche is now on Twitter: @NuitBlog ** It's the little things. In the 2000s, after featuring good work on Nuit Blanche, I was usually following through by asking authors where their codes were. This is how the implementation tag was born. Some of the answers were along the lines of: "I didn't make it available because I thought it was not worthy"....

Photonic Computing for Massively Parallel AI is out and it is spectacular!

It’s been a long time brewing but we just released our first white paper on Photonic Computing for Massively Parallel AI. The document features the technology we develop at LightOn, some of its use, some testimonials, and how we see the future of computing. It is downloadable here or from our website: LightOn.aiEnjoy! Follow @NuitBlog or join the CompressiveSensing...

Tackling Reinforcement Learning with the Aurora OPU

** Nuit Blanche is now on Twitter: @NuitBlog ** Martin Graive did an internship at LightOn and decided to investigate how to use Random Projections in the context of Reinforcement Learning. He just wrote a blog post on the matter entitled "Tackling Reinforcement Learning with the Aurora OPU". The attendant GitHub repo is located here. Enjoy!Follow @NuitBlog or...

You can request access to the Cloud at https://cloud.lighton.ai/We are also having a LightOn Cloud for Research program: https://cloud.lighton.ai/lighton-research/[En]...

Accelerating SARS-COv2 Molecular Dynamics Studies with Optical Random Features

** Nuit Blanche is now on Twitter: @NuitBlog ** We just published a new blog post at LightOn. This time, we used LightOn's Optical Processing Unit to show how our hardware can help in speeding up global sampling studies that are using Molecular Dynamics simulations, such as in the case of metadynamics. Our engineer, Amélie Chatelain wrote a blog post...

Au Revoir Backprop ! Bonjour Optical Transfer Learning !

** Nuit Blanche is now on Twitter: @NuitBlog ** We recently used LightOn's Optical Processing Unit to show how our hardware fared in the context of Transfer learning. Our engineer, Luca Tommasone wrote a blog post about it and it is here: Au Revoir Backprop! Bonjour Optical Transfer Learning!Because building computational hardware makes no sense if...

Beyond Overfitting and Beyond Silicon: The double descent curve

** Nuit Blanche is now on Twitter: @NuitBlog ** We recently tried a small experiment with LightOn's Optical Processing Unit on the issue of generalization. Our engineer, Alessandro Cappelli, did the experiment and wrote a blog post on it and it is here: Beyond Overfitting and Beyond Silicon: The double descent curve Two days ago, Becca Willett was talking...
