Paper Abstract

Optical techniques have been investigated for information processing since 1950's. This paper provides a unified view of different approaches to optical information processing and computing. Such a view serves to bring out interrelations (similarities and differences) between seemingly different topics and will thereby identify a common technological infrastructure for this broad discipline. The emerging technology of "Smart Pixels" is also discussed and a framework for organizing different "Smart Pixel" approaches presented.
