What does it do
What does it do? Ability-Specific Nodes

  • A common programming interface to structure the definition of a “node” object

  • Nodes are cheap, interchangeable

  • Computer programs (written in common languages) are compiled and distributed among nodes to perform complicated tasks

  • Interface based (possibly) on XML or .NET


What i ll do with it
What Ability-Specific NodesI'll do with it...

  • Create individual nodes to perform computational primitives (multiplying, dividing, array manipulation)

  • Write & execute higher-level programs on the network

  • Demonstrate the network's flexibility

    • Swapping Nodes

    • Upgrading Nodes


Far reaching implications
Far-Reaching Implications Ability-Specific Nodes

  • Nodes can be easily upgraded, interchanged (PBJ sandwich)

  • Nodes could perform physical tasks

    • Manufacturing

    • Civil Construction/Repair

    • Disaster Management

    • Surgical Tasks

  • Nano-Technology


Research areas
Research Areas Ability-Specific Nodes

  • Computer Networks/Systems

  • Compilers

  • Artificial Intelligence?

  • Programming Languages?
