NON-VON: A Parallel Machine Architecture For Knowledge-Based Information Processing

Shaw, David Elliot

NON-VON is a highly parallel machine designed to support the efficient implementation of very large scale knowledge-based systems. The utility of such a machine has been demonstrated analytically (1, 2) and through implementation of a working knowledge-based information retrieval system in which the NON-VON machine instructions were emulated in software (3). In cooperation with the Stanford Computer Science Department, we have recently begun to implement the most important components of the machine as custom VLSI circuits.
