"Daniel Hillis offers an easy-to-follow explanation of how data is processed that makes the operation of a computer seem as straightforward as those of a bicycle." "Hillis proceeds from an outline of basic logic to clear descriptions of programming languages, algorithms and memory. He then takes readers in simple steps up to the most exciting developments in computing today - quantum computing, parallel computing, neural networks, and self-organizing systems."--Jacket

History tells of cultures that grew and flourished, only to disappear. The question is whether we will experience the same fate.

Following some of the traces left behind by our ancestors-and consulting today's religious leaders, scientists and philosophers - this extraordinary documentary reveals a startling picture of mankind's very early existence and a glimpse Into the future

The connection machine : computer architecture for the new wave by W. Daniel Hillis( Book )

6 editions published between 1981 and 1987 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes the connection memory, a machine for concurrently manipulating knowledge stored in semantic networks. We need the connection memory because conventional serial computers cannot move through such networks fast enough. The connection memory sidesteps the problem by providing processing power proportional to the size of the network. Each node and link in the network has its own simple processor. These connect to form a uniform locally-connected network of perhaps a million processor/memory cells. (Author)
