Reservoir Computing is a methodology coming from the field of machine learning and
neural networks that has been successfully used in pattern classification problems. We
have investigated with simulations a network of coupled semiconductor optical amplifiers
as an integrated photonic reservoir on a benchmark speech recognition task. In spite of
the differences with classical software reservoir models, the performance of our photonic
reservoir is comparable to that of conventional implementations with the same number of
nodes. It performs even better when the most important parameter, the amount of delay
in the interconnections, is tuned to its optimal value.
