The goal of the project ResTop (Photonic Memory Computing with Non-Planar Topology) is to develop and fabricate an integrated chip for artificial intelligence (AI) applications in the form of photonic reservoir computing. It can be used, for example, to analyze the transmission quality of fiber-optic links. The project aims to provide solutions to the limitations of the current reservoir architecture.

The project is funded withn the NRW Patent Validation’ program of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), with co-funding of the European Union
