  journal={Opto-Electronic Advances},
In the recent years, a dramatic boost of the research is observed at the junction of photonics, machine learning and artificial intelligence . A new methodology can be applied to the description of a variety of photonic systems including optical waveguides, nanoantennas, and metasurfaces. These novel approaches underpin the fundamental principles of light-matter interaction developed for a smart design of intelligent photonic devices. Artificial intelligence and machine learning penetrate…

Approaching the adiabatic timescale with machine learning
This work experimentally demonstrates a general approach using a machine-learning algorithm that develops a model of the system, based on previous performance, to create further educated guesses on how to improve, and reaches a speed faster than that of previous approaches, dealing well with the complex dynamics and experimental imperfections present with its empirical approach.
