Technological commodities of the 21st century come with exponential demands on information processing. While the electronic devices face physical limits of scalability, nanophotonics emerges as a leading solution for the Big Data manipulation. In the first part of the seminar, I will discuss the role of novel photonic architectures and robust device design algorithms in meeting the short-term classical hardware speedup goals. Moving toward the implementation of quantum information processing paradigms, I will evaluate applicability of color centers in silicon carbide and diamond to quantum computing, communication and cryptography. Finally, I will present advances in integration of color centers with nanoscale photonic devices serving as efficient quantum bits and quantum light sources.
