New expensive high-tech factories have to be built in order to enable a constant production rate of optic cables. Management of these factories too will lead to a demand experienced personnel (Computers & Security Editorial Board, 2018).ConclusionThrough the various research conducted occasionally in optical computers, new possibilities in several fields related to high-performance computing, high-speed communications have been developed. Therefore, specific properties of optics must be considered in order to design algorithms that execute applications faster under minimum maintenance costs possible, such as the ability to exploit massive parallelism, and global interconnections. Software development will have a major impact in the future and the ground rules for computing may have to be rewritten as optoelectronic and smart pixel devices mature. Optics has been used in computing for a number of years but the main emphasis has been and continues to be to link portions of computers, for communications, or more intrinsically in devices that have some optical application or component. Optical digital computers are still some years away, however, a number of devices that can ultimately lead to real optical computers have already been manufactured, including optical logic gates, optical switches, optical interconnections, and optical memory. The most likely near-term optical computer will really be a hybrid composed of traditional architectural design along with some portions that can perform some functional operations in optical mode.ReferencesAcknowledgement to Reviewers of Computers in 2017.
