Bio-inspired and quantum paradigms are two emerging approaches to computing that aim to overcome the limitations of traditional computing methods. The EU-funded PROMETHEUS project will bridge the gap between bio-inspired and quantum computing by developing a common platform that integrates the strengths of both paradigms. The project will focus on creating a photonic integrated platform that combines the scalability of quantum computing with the efficiency of neuromorphic computing. The platform will use a dense reconfigurable silicon waveguide mesh powered by non-volatile barium titanate phase shifters and on-chip spiking lasers, providing low power consumption and high-speed tuning during mesh reconfiguration. The sophisticated electro-optic packaging will enable the PROMETHEUS platform to become a standalone hybrid engine for demanding applications.
