We welcome attendees to the Machine learning theme at the OSA Frontiers in Optics (FiO) 2021 meeting in Washington DC. The Machine Learning Theme provides an interdisciplinary platform to learn about and discuss a wide range of optics/photonics topics that machine learning has recently impacted on. The Theme features 1 visionary speaker, 1 tutorial speaker, and 15 invited speakers spanning academia, industry, and government institutions. These exciting speakers will provide both historical retrospectives and state-of-the-art views on emerging machine learning techniques applied to optics/photonics applications. The topics include computational imaging, metaphotonics, optical computing, biophotonics, and many more. Through these talks, attendees will learn about the newest machine learning technologies applied to optics and photonics and some of the emerging concepts in embedding optical physics into machine learning designs.
