Biologically inspired distributed machine cognition: a new formal approach to hyperparallel computation

By Rodrick Wallace


The irresistable march toward multiple-core chip technology presents currently intractable pdrogramming challenges. High level mental processes in many animals, and their analogs for social structures, appear similarly massively parallel, and recent mathematical models addressing them may be adaptable to the multi-core programming problem
