At LightOn, we usually define ourselves as a hardware company that does Machine Learning or a Machine Learning company that does hardware. it depends on who we are talking to. Sometimes we may even mention that we are using light as a means of performing computations of interest to high dimensional Machine Learning. Irrespective to all these characterizations, and because we are building a technology from the ground-up, research is essential to our endeavor. This afternoon (Paris time), we are hosting our third Research Workshop at PC’UP/IPGG. You can register here if you want to attend.

(And yes, for our new logo, the “O” of LightOn features an L2 ball and the projection of a “spiky” high-dimensional sphere.)
