Title: Parallel multi-computers and artificial intelligence

Abstract

This book examines the present state and future direction of multicomputer parallel architectures for artificial intelligence research and development of artificial intelligence applications. The book provides a survey of the large variety of parallel architectures, describing the current state of the art and suggesting promising architectures to produce artificial intelligence systems such as intelligence systems such as intelligent robots. This book integrates artificial intelligence and parallel processing research areas and discusses parallel processing from the viewpoint of artificial intelligence.

  • This book represents a conceptual integration of key ideas in AI and Computer Architecture that were previously scattered in various sources. The book consists of contributions relating to state-of-the-art research on topics such as parallel AI algorithms and parallel architectures. In addition, the appendix offers a bibliography of literature related to parallel processing and Artificial Intelligence.
  • This book discusses Parallel Processing in Artificial Intelligence; Parallel Computing using Multilisp; Execution of Common Lisp in a Parallel Environment; Qlisp; Restricted AND-Parallel Execution of Logic Programs; PARLOG: Parallel Programming in Logic; and Data-driven Processing of Semantic Nets. Attention is also given to: Application of the Butterfly Parallel Processor in Artificial Intelligence; On the Range of Applicability of an Artificial Intelligence Machine; Low-level Vision on Warp and the Apply Programming Mode; AHR: A Parallel Computer for Pure Lisp; FAIM-1: An Architecture for Symbolic Multi-processing; and Overview of Al Application Oriented Parallel Processing Research in Japan.
  • In this book, fundamentals in language-oriented and knowledge-oriented computer architecture for artificial intelligence applications are presented in papers organized under the following topics: AI applications; computer architectures for AI; AI languages and programming; microlevel architecture; macrolevel architectures; functional-programming-oriented architectures; logic and knowledge oriented architectures; fifth-generation computer system; and computer systems for specialized AI applications.
  • This study reviews the development and current state-of-the-art in computers for artificial intelligence, including LISP machines, AI workstations, professional and engineering workstations, minicomputers, mainframes, and supercomputers. Major computer systems for AI applications are reviewed. The use of personal computers for expert system development is discussed, and AI software for the IBM PC, Texas Instrument Professional Computer, and Apple MacIntosh is presented. Current research aimed at developing a new computer for artificial intelligence is described, and future technological developments are discussed.
  • This book features information on a wide range of key subjects, including vector processors and multi-processors, concurrency control, hypercube systems and key applications, parallel architectures for implementing AI systems, and a comparison of the Cray X-MP-4, the Fujitsu VP-200, and the Hitachi S-810/20. Also explained are such topics as the parallel programming environment and software support, applying AI techniques to program optimization for parallel computers, data flow computations for AI, VLSI array processors for signal/image processing, and optical computing and artificial neural technologies.
