Convolutional neural networks have become established as the primary mechanisms for image processing over the past decade. While general purpose optical neural networks remain a long term project, in the near term optical prefilters act as the first layers of electronic deep convolutional networks and enable 10-100x reduction in system power per reconstructed voxel.
