DAY OF PHOTONICS is an annual event organized in Europe that promotes “photonics” towards the general public. IBM scientists are researching photonics because it uses light instead of electrical signals to transfer information for future computing systems, thus allowing large volumes of Big Data to be moved fast between computer chips in servers, large cloud data-centers, and supercomputers.
In the videos below IBM scientists discuss how they are using photonics.
