Today's unrelenting increase in demand for information processing creates the need for novel computing concepts. Reservoir computing is such a concept that lends itself particularly well to photonic hardware implementations. Over recent years, these hardware implementations have gained maturity and now achieve state-of-the-art performance on several benchmark tasks. However, implementations so far are essentially all based on sequential data processing, leaving the inherent parallelism of…
