The capability of optics to face the new demand in advanced computer technology is evaluated. The attention is not restricted to passive interconnections, fixed or programmable, but rather emphasizes the active control requirements for optical network nodes and parallel data handling. All-optical computing research is also considered, for its ability to implement logic blocks and data-driven processing inside the parallel architecture of modern electronic array processors or inference machines.
