The evolution of new computing technologies and the availability of big data are boosting machine learning (ML) and deep learning in different fields. This special topic covers the applications of artificial intelligence in all aspects of display technologies and manufacturing. These sessions will bring together display experts and AI/ML experts to explore opportunities to solve challenging display problems with the most promising AI/ML techniques. Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Advanced display applications, particularly in mobile and wearable devices, require optimizing spaceconstrained architectures and functional co-existence of the display and various components required in these applications (such as for sensing, imaging, connectivity, transducers, etc.).This special topic aims to bring together contributions by authors from academia, display, and non-display companies that are developing technologies, display and component designs optimized for co-existence, new assembly or integration solutions, and software solutions for minimizing display impact on the respective components and functionalities. Examples include, but are not limited to:

Novel ultra-high bandwidth solutions are needed to enable the next generation of beyond-8K resolution and data-intensive applications such as holography, stereovision, light-field displays, and next-generation AR/VR/MR. Achieving retina resolution at large field of view and high frame rate necessitates a significant increase in data generation, processing, and transmission bandwidth. Foveal tracking and other functions can require intensive high-speed processing in small form factors. Additionally, the inclusion of numerous sensors and cameras compounds the need for ultrahigh- bandwidth data requirements and intuitive user controls. These challenges pose a significant hurdle for existing hardware architectures to meet the demands of low power consumption, low thermal budget, low latency, ease of use, and long battery life products.

This special topic seeks contributions from display and non-display companies and academia that are engaged in innovative work with new ideas to address this complex problem. We invite abstract submissions on the following topics, although contributions are not limited to these areas:
