Title: Scaling up Echo-State Networks with multiple light scattering

Abstract: Echo-State Networks and Reservoir Computing have been studied for more than a decade. As they provide an elegant yet powerful alternative to traditional computing, researchers have tried to implement them using physical systems, in particular non-linear optical elements, achieving high bandwidth and low power consumption. Here we present a completely different optical implementation of Echo-State Networks using light-scattering materials. As a proof of concept, binary networks have been successfully trained to perform non-linear operations on time series and memory of such networks has been evaluated. This new method is fast, power efficient and easily scalable to very large networks.
