Paper Abstract

Analog optics is very fast but not very accurate. Digital electronics is much slower but much more accurate. Compromise (hybrid) systems appear to be intermediate in both speed and accuracy. As there are cases in which analog optics is too inaccurate and digital electronics is too slow; hybrid processors may have an important role to play.
