History of Parallel Processing

PP can be traced to a tablet dated around 100 BC.
Tablet has 3 calculating positions.
Infer that multiple positions:
Reliability/ Speed

Motivating Factors

Just as we learned to fly, not by constructing a machine that flaps its wings like birds, but by applying aerodynamics principles demonstrated by nature...
We modeled PP after those of biological species.

Aggregated speed with
which complex calculations
carried out by individual neurons
response is slow (ms) - demonstrate
feasibility of PP

Computation requirements are ever increasing -- visualization, distributed databases, simulations, scientific prediction (earthquake), etc..
Sequential architectures reaching physical limitation (speed of light, thermodynamics)

Why Parallel Processing?

The Tech. of PP is mature and can be exploited commercially; significant R & D work on development of tools & environment.
Significant development in Networking technology is paving a way for heterogeneous computing.

Hardware improvements like Pipelining, Superscalar, etc., are non-scalable and requires sophisticated Compiler Technology.
Vector Processing works well for certain kind of problems.
