UCLA engineers develop artificial intelligence device that identifies objects at the speed of light

Ozcan Research Group/UCLA The network, composed of a series of polymer layers, works using light that travels through it. Each layer is 8 centimeters square. A team of UCLA electrical and computer engineers has created a physical artificial neural network - a device modeled on how the human brain works - that can analyze large volumes of data and identify objects at the actual speed of light.
