This paper has three sections on computation revolutions in the information age. In the first section key examples of revolutions in the early history, i.e., how to overcome heat penalty arisen from high power consumption in silicon electronics will be presented to bring to light in the ever evolving nature of the computation. In the second section the optical interconnection in terms of silicon photonics will be discussed as the way in which computation have fundamentally altered the previous trend of power consumption. The final section will focus on a paradigm shift in computation, i.e., an architecture of logic implementation, binary decision diagram, to replace to current computation system without fighting transistor logic circuitry.
