Circuits of the mind by Leslie Valiant( Book )

In this groundbreaking work, computer scientist Leslie G. Valiant details a promising new computational approach to studying the intricate workings of the human brain. Focusing on the brain's enigmatic ability to quickly access a massive store of accumulated information during reasoning processes, the author asks how such feats are possible given the extreme constraints imposed by the brain's finite number of neurons, their limited speed of communication, and their restricted interconnectivity. Valiant proposes a "neuroidal model" that serves as a vehicle to explore these fascinating questions. While embracing the now classical theories of McCulloch and Pitts, the neuroidal model also accommodates state information in the neurons, more flexible timing mechanisms, a variety of assumptions about interconnectivity, and the possibility that different brain areas perform specialized functions. Programmable so that a wide range of algorithmic theories can be described and evaluated, the model provides a concrete computational language and a unified framework in which diverse cognitive phenomena - such as memory, learning, and reasoning - can be systematically and concurrently analyzed. Requiring no specialized knowledge, Circuits of the Mind masterfully offers an exciting new approach to brain science for students and researchers in computer science, neurobiology, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and cognitive science

General purpose parallel architectures by Leslie Valiant( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "The possiblities for efficient general purpose parallel computers are examined. First some network models are reviewed. It is then shown how these networks can efficiently implement some basic message routing functions. Finally, various high level models of parallel computation are described and it is shown that the above routing functions are sufficient to implement them efficiently."

Bulk-synchronous parallel computers by Leslie Valiant( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "We attribute the success of the von Neumann model of sequential computation to the fact that it is an efficient bridge between software and hardware. On the one hand high level languages can be efficiently compiled on to [sic] this model. On the other, it can be efficiently implemented in hardware in current technology. We argue that an analogous bridge between software and hardware is required for parallel computation if that is to become as widely used. We introduce the bulk-synchronous parallel (BSP) model as a candidate for this role. We justify this suggestion by giving a number of results that quantify its efficiency both in implementing some high level language features, as well as in being implemented in hardware."

Direct bulk-synchronous parallel algorithms by Alexandros V Gerbessiotis( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "We describe a methodology for constructing parallel algorithms that are transportable among parallel computers having different numbers of processors, different bandwidths of interprocessor communication and different periodicity of global synchronization. We do this for the bulk-synchronous parallel (BSP) model, which abstracts the characteristics of a parallel machine into three numerical parameters p, g, and L, corresponding to processors, bandwidth, and periodicity respectively. The model differentiates memory that is local to a processor from that which is not, but, for the sake of universality, does not differentiate network proximity
