Algorithms are often sought whose speed increases as processing elements are added, yet attempts at such parallelization typically result in little speedup, due to serial dependencies intrinsic to many algorithms. A novel class of algorithms have been developed that exhibit intrinsic parallelism, so that when processing elements are added to increase their(More)
The development of connectivity among brain networks (e.g., thalamocortical, cortico-thalamic, cortico-cortical) proceeds via a combination of axon and dendrite growth followed by a later process of synaptic pruning [Purves, D., Lichtman, J.W., 1980. Elimination of synapses in the developing nervous system. Science, 210, 153-157; Oppenheim, R.W., 1991. Cell(More)
Even though computing systems have increased the number of transistors , the switching speed, and the number of processors, most programs exhibit limited speedup due to the serial dependencies of existing algorithms. Analysis of intrinsically parallel systems such as brain circuitry have led to the identification of novel architecture designs, and also new(More)
