Paper Abstract

Teledyne Brown Engineering has developed techniques for mapping sequential algorithms onto a neural model of a parallel distributed processor. Any sequential algorithm (including NP algorithms) can be mapped onto a neural network. This paper discusses some practical considerations for implementation of sequential to parallel mappings (SPM). It is feasible to generalize these techniques and implement a neural compiler for sequential algorithms. Neural networks (the interconnection matrix) generated by the neural compiler will be implemented in a fixed, holographic, optical computer.
