Efficient Parallel Information Filtering
Rowe, Neil C.
MetadataShow full item record
Opportunities frequently arise in command and control for identical information filtering operations to be performed on data items geographicallyorchronologicallydispersed. For instance, in monitoring a frontier we may be looking for suspicious activity anywhere along it; or in analyzing a sonar log, we may be interested inanytransitsofaparticulartype. Whenmultiple processors are available, data parallelism (where each processor works on different data) is the obvious way to improve efficiency of such informationfiltering. Thegeographically dispersed or chronologically allocated processors can report to a central summarizing processor or set of processors.
