Researchers from the Technion and Tel Aviv University
present a new and original solution to this problem, based on computational
learning tools, in an article recently published in
Optica, the flagship magazine of the Optical Society. The idea for this
solution came up in a social gathering of researchers from different research
groups: the group of Professor Alex Bronstein from the Taub Faculty of Computer
Science at the Technion, an expert in computational learning and information
analysis, and the group of Professor Adi Aryeh (head of the Marco and Lucy Shaul
Chair), from Tel-Aviv University, specializing in theoretical and applied
research in the field of non-linear optics and in particular quantum optics.
Research partners, previously a master's student under the guidance of Prof.
Aryeh and currently a doctoral student in Prof. Bronstein's research group, and
the members of Prof. Aryeh's group - Aviv Karnieli, Ofir Yesharim, Dr. Sivan
Trajtenberg-Mills (currently a postdoctoral fellow at MIT) and Joshua
Foley-Comer. The project was joined by an external expert from the company
"Google" - Dr. Daniel Freedman, an experienced researcher in the field of
computational learning, who has already worked with Rozenberg and Prof.
Bronstein on other projects. Dr. Friedman is now the head of the research group
at Verily - Google Life Science.
