We describe a new approach for constructing large-scale artificial neural networks. The novelty of our approach is based on the concept of electroholography (EH), which permits interconnecting of electronic neurons by minute-volume holograms, using the voltage-controlled photorefractive effect in paraelectric crystals. Crystals of potassium lithium tantalate niobate (KLTN) in the paraelectric phase are shown to be suitable for implementing this concept. A small network composed of two KLTN crystals on which holographic connections are recorded is presented to demonstrate the EH approach.
