Photonic neural network

I have found this paper on the internet. I know that QNN uses the kerr or the cubic phase gates as the nonlinear activation functions however the paper uses the measurement operation itself as a nonlinear function. My question here is that would Xanadu provide a real photonic quantum computer besides the fock simulator? and would it be like the one in the paper?

Yes, we are building photonic quantum computer hardware. It will have some aspects in common with that work, but will be built with quantum information in mind.
