Paper Abstract

In this paper, an OR-Parallel Execution model based multiprocessor system is proposed. Our OR-parallel execution model addresses the following features: (1) Run-time Intelligent Backtracking, (2) Distributed process control and execution, (3) Minimization of data communication between processors, and (4) Minimization of parallel processing management overhead. Special hardware modules such as Intelligent Backtracking Controller, and Forward Execution Controller are designed to further enhance these features in run-time. A bus connected multiprocessor system is designed to experience the proposed OR-parallel execution model. Recent simulation results indicate that the OR-parallel execution model can be successfully used to conduct the parallel processing of most non-deterministic Prolog applications such as database systems, rule-based expert systems, natural language processing and theorem proving, etc.
