Most of the papers during this quantity have been awarded on the NATO complicated study Workshop excessive functionality Computing: know-how and alertness, held in Cetraro, Italy from 24 to 26 of June, 1996. the most function of the Workshop was once to debate a few key clinical and technological advancements in excessive functionality computing, determine major tendencies and defme fascinating examine targets. the amount constitution corresponds, generally, to the description of the workshop technical time table: normal techniques and rising platforms, software program know-how, algorithms and functions. one of many Workshop options was once an attempt to increase a little bit the scope of the assembly from scientific/engineering computing to enterprise-wide computing. The papers on functionality and scalability of database servers, and Oracle DBMS replicate this try out we are hoping that when examining this selection of papers the readers can have a good suggestion approximately a few very important study and technological matters in excessive functionality computing. we want to supply our due to the NATO medical and Environmental Affairs department for being the critical sponsor for the Workshop. additionally we're happy to recognize different associations and corporations that supported the Workshop: ecu Union: eu fee DGIII-Industry, CNR: nationwide study Council of Italy, college of Calabria, Alenia Spazio, Centro Italiano Ricerche Aerospaziali, ENEA: Italian nationwide corporation for brand spanking new know-how, power and the surroundings, Fujitsu, Hewlett Packard-Convex, Hitachi, NEC, Oracle, and Silicon Graphics-Cray study.

Parsing the Turing Test: Philosophical and Methodological Issues in the Quest for the Thinking Computer

Parsing the Turing try out is a landmark exploration of either the philosophical and methodological matters surrounding the hunt for precise synthetic intelligence. Will desktops and robots ever imagine and converse the best way people do? whilst a working laptop or computer crosses the brink into self-consciousness, will it instantly bounce into the net and create an international brain?

Channel • CRC checking on each packet with retransmission on error via a go-back-n sliding window protocol The Origin 2000 employs SPIDER routers to create a bristled fat hypercube interconnect topology. The network topology is bristled in that two nodes are connected to a single router instead of one. The fat hypercube comes into play for systems beyond 32 nodes (64 processors). For up to 32 nodes, the routers connect nodes in a bristled hypercube as shown in Figure 4.. The SPIDER routers are labeled using R, the nodes are the block boxes connecting to the routers.

Also, all available software for the workstations can immediately be used on the parallel systems, at least on a single processor. This seems to be a big advantage for selling systems to industrial users as can be seen in [4]. 8 Application Areas Looking at the different application areas in Fig. 9 and Fig. 5% of the installed performance, after the decreasing share of industrial installations during the last years. If you look at the Top500 in more detail you see that only IBM with 53%, SGl with 38% and HP /Convex with 32% have an over proportional share of industrial installations.
