}
A distributed architecture and indexing algorithm for high-performance information retrieval has been developed. A prototype system has been built that achieves a throughput of 500 queries per second with a response time of less than one second on an 8-node network of workstations. The algorithm is robust in the presence of lost and duplicated messages as well as failures of nodes of the network. The architecture can be scaled up to larger networks and higher levels of service. The retrieval…

KEYNET : An architecture and protocol for high-performance semantically rich information retrieval
TLDR
This work proposes an architecture and protocol for semantically rich information retrieval from a subject-speci c corpus of information objects that is compatible with distributed processing architectures and scales up well, allowing very large collections to be searched very quickly using semantically complex queries.

A unified approach to high-performance , vector-based information retrieval
TLDR
An information retrieval model based on the vector space model is proposed that unifies and extends many commonly used retrieval mechanisms and allows for content labels that are semantically more complex than just attributes, keywords and subject classifications.
High-Performance , Distributed Information Retrieval
TLDR
An information retrieval (IR) system called KEYNET is proposed which is a high-performance, distributed search engine for locating information objects in a large subject-specific corpus and has developed a prototype keynet system for testing the validity of the basic ideas and also to get preliminary performance results.

How can a system that differs sharply from all currently fashionable approaches score any kind of success? Here's how.
KEYNET : Fast indexing for semantically rich information retrieval
TLDR
An architecture and index structure for semantically rich information retrieval from a subject-specific collection of documents or other information objects that is compatible with parallel machine architectures and scales up well, allowing very large collections to be searched very quickly using semantically complex queries.
High performance
TLDR
A new generation of high-performance display controller ICS with integrated analog-to-digital converters has been developed, including multi-sync circuitry, frame-rate conversion, image scaling, on-screen display, color shading technology and LCD module interface.
