This paper introduces o mechanism called CID, the Connection Information Distributor. CID extends connectionism by providing o way to program networks of simple processing elements on line, in response to processing demands. Without CID, simultaneous processing of several patterns has only been possible by prewiring multiple copies of the network needed to process one pattern at o time. With CID, programmable processing structures con be loaded with connection informotion stored centrally. OS… CONTINUE READING
