Today’s conventional cloud computing and mobile platforms have been challenged by the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT). The performance and diversity requirements of these applications demand the shift towards hyper-scale datacenters, Exascale high-performance computing (HPC), energy-efficient edge computing, and new sensing and imaging modalities.

This talk will describe several monolithic photonics platforms in advanced CMOS technologies that were designed as a key enabler for the next-generation of integrated systems. These integrated system design methodologies can unlock new functionalities and revolutionize many applications in HPC, high-bandwidth wireless connectivity, LiDAR, bio-sensing, etc.
