Nonlinear photonic sources including semiconductor lasers have recently been utilized as ideal computation elements for information processing. They supply energy-efficient way and rich dynamics for classification and recognition tasks. In this work, we propose and numerically study the dynamics of complex photonic systems including high-$\beta$ laser element with delayed feedback and functional current modulation, and employ nonlinear laser dynamics of near-threshold region for the application in reservoir computing. The results indicate a perfect (100$\%$) recognition accuracy for the pattern recognition task, and an accuracy of about 98$\%$ for the Mackey-Glass chaotic sequences prediction. Therefore, the system shows an improvement of performance with low-power consumption, in particular, the error rate is an order of magnitude smaller in comparison with previous works.
