I.P. Hierarchical Systems: Architectural Features
In this paper the nature of image understanding tasks is outlined and the network computer, multicomputer, and multiprocessor systems based on a hierarchical structure, which have been developed for these tasks, are reviewed.
Finally, the architectural features of the PAPIA machine are presented in details together with the applications that we are developing on this system.
