Abstract
We review the physical principles underlying logic decision making and communication for both optics and electronics. Research directions towards demonstration machines are indicated using the experimentally proven properties of bistable memories, logic gates and optical transphasors. The demonstration of restoring optical logic, a 'lock and clock' architecture and of a simple finite state machine is described.
