Paper Abstract

The Goddard Space Flight Center is presently developing hardware technology for building ultra high speed computers for processing two dimensional data. This technology employs massive parallelism, doing thousands of operations simultaneously, to obtain this speed. The operations are performed over a binary image or matrix which is the basic data entity. If the image operations are performed at the same speed that a standard computer operates on a single binary digit the image processing speed is potentially increased by a factor equal to the number of elements in the binary image. Computers that operate on binary images have come to be called tse computers. The word "tse" is Chinese for their writing characters which are actually stylized images.
