Paper Abstract

Image processing places enormous computational demands on current computer systems and in part motivates the design of fine-grained, massively parallel machines. While several architectures have been proposed for image applications, the approach taken with the Connection Machine has been to use a very large number of simple processors, each with a small amount of local memory, and each capable of communicating in an efficient manner with all other processors. In this report, we give our experience with the Connection Machine on a number of computer vision and vision related problems.
