This paper describes a hardware to support distributed associative memories, in particular the ADAM neural network architecture. The system is designed to support a large number of moderately sized ADAM memories on a distributed memory MIMD architecture. The system addresses the issues of weight paging to allow neural networks of very large size to be(More)
One of the key aspects of most living organisms is their ability to detect and exploit natural sources of energy within their environment. We are currently developing a robotic predator system that will attempt to sustain itself by hunting and catching slugs on agricultural land. A microbial fuel cell will be used to convert the slug bio-mass to electricity(More)
With a few exceptions, today's mobile robots, however complex, are not truly autonomous. At some time, they all require humans to supply them with energy and/or information; most also require other forms of assistance. In complete contrast, even the simplest animals are totally self-sufficient. We describe a current project 1 which aims to construct(More)

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS I would first like to thank my advisor, Professor Wen-mei Hwu, for his guidance and support. I also would like to thank the IMPACT group, in general, and Dave Gallagher and Ben Sander, in particular, for their participation in helpful discussions. Several people in AMD's KRYPTON group have provided valuable guidance and support, especially(More)
