Random pattern and frequency generation using a photonic reservoir computer with output feedback

no code implementations19 Dec 2020 Piotr Antonik, Michiel Hermans, Marc Haelterman, Serge Massar

We demonstrate the first opto-electronic reservoir computer with output feedback and test it on two examples of time series generation tasks: frequency and random pattern generation.

A Differentiable Physics Engine for Deep Learning in Robotics

no code implementations5 Nov 2016 Jonas Degrave, Michiel Hermans, Joni Dambre, Francis wyffels

Currently, robots are often treated as a black box in this optimization process, which is the reason why derivative-free optimization methods such as evolutionary algorithms or reinforcement learning are omnipresent.

Embodiment of Learning in Electro-Optical Signal Processors

no code implementations20 Oct 2016 Michiel Hermans, Piotr Antonik, Marc Haelterman, Serge Massar

Delay-coupled electro-optical systems have received much attention for their dynamical properties and their potential use in signal processing.

Towards Trainable Media: Using Waves for Neural Network-Style Training

no code implementations30 Sep 2015 Michiel Hermans, Thomas Van Vaerenbergh

In this paper we study the concept of using the interaction between waves and a trainable medium in order to construct a matrix-vector multiplier.

Photonic Delay Systems as Machine Learning Implementations

no code implementations12 Jan 2015 Michiel Hermans, Miguel Soriano, Joni Dambre, Peter Bienstman, Ingo Fischer

We perform physical experiments that demonstrate that the obtained input encodings work well in reality, and we show that optimized systems perform significantly better than the common Reservoir Computing approach.

Trainable and Dynamic Computing: Error Backpropagation through Physical Media

no code implementations24 Jul 2014 Michiel Hermans, Michaël Burm, Joni Dambre, Peter Bienstman

Machine learning algorithms, and more in particular neural networks, arguably experience a revolution in terms of performance.

Memristor models for machine learning

no code implementations9 Jun 2014 Juan Pablo Carbajal, Joni Dambre, Michiel Hermans, Benjamin Schrauwen

In this work, we explore the use of memristor networks for analog approximate computation, based on a machine learning framework called reservoir computing.
