We describe a distributed, modular architecture for platform independent natural language systems. It features automatic interface generation and self-organization. Adaptive (and nonadaptive) voting mechanisms are used for integrating discrete modules. The architecture is suitable for rapid prototyping and product delivery.

DNS architecture is a hierarchical distributed database and an associated set of protocols that define: •A mechanism for querying and updating the database. •A mechanism for replicating the information in the database among servers. •A schema of the database. DNS originated in the early days of the Internet when the Internet was a small network established by the United States Department of Defense for research purposes. The host names of the computers in this network were managed through the use of a single HOSTS file located on a centrally administered server....
Virtually every computing system today is part of a distributed system. Programmers, developers, and engineers need to understand the underlying principles and paradigms as well as the real-world application of those principles. Now, internationally renowned expert Andrew S. Tanenbaum – with colleague Martin van Steen – presents a complete introduction that identifies the seven key principles of distributed systems, with extensive examples of each. Adds a completely new chapter on architecture to address the principle of organizing distributed systems.
Distribution switchboards, including the main LV switchboard (MLVS), are critical to the dependability of an electrical installation. They must comply with well-deﬁned standards governing the design and construction of LV switchgear assemblies
In Ebook Principles of Distributed Database Systems deﬁnes the fundamental concepts and set the framework for discussing distributed databases. We start by examining distributed systems in general in order to clarify the role of database technology within distributed data processing, and then move on to topics that are more directly related to DDBS.

Making cost-sensitive decisions about deploying FTTX architectures requires service
providers to not only look at initial installation costs, but to also peer into the future
regarding operational and maintenance expenses following service turn-up. Cost
modeling allows the deployer to review the financial benefits of their design choices
before deployment begins. This paper specifically addresses the cost comparisons
between using hardened connectors vs. splices in two basic areas of the FTTX network
– the distribution plant and drop cable portions....

A scaffolding architecture for conformal cooling design in rapid plastic injection moulding
Received: 4 August 2005 / Accepted: 25 March 2006 / Published online: 8 June 2006 # Springer-Verlag London Limited 2006
Abstract Cooling design of plastic injection mould is important because it not only affects part quality but also the injection moulding cycle time. Traditional injection mould cooling layout is based on a conventional machining process.
The paper begins by defining a class of distributed memory machines which have useful properties as retrieval and filtering devices. These memory mechanisms store large numbers of associations on a single composite vector. They provide a natural format for encoding the syntactic and semantic constraints associated with linguistic elements. A computational architecture for parsing natural language is proposed which utillses the retrieval and associative features of these devices.
While speech recognition systems have come a long way in the last thirty years, there is still room for improvement. Although readily available, these systems are sometimes inaccurate and insufficient. The research presented here outlines a technique called Distributed Listening which demonstrates noticeable improvements to existing speech recognition methods. The Distributed Listening architecture introduces the idea of multiple, parallel, yet physically separate automatic speech recognizers called listeners. Distributed Listening also uses a piece of middleware called an interpreter.
A novel approach to the problem of text understanding is presented, which exploits a distributed processing concept, where knowledge from different sources comes into play in the course of comprehension. In the paper the rationale of advocating such an approach and the.advantages in following it are discussed. A prototype parser based on an original distributed problem-solving architecture is presented.

Chapter 17 - Database system architectures. Chapter 17 covers computer-system architecture, and describes the influence of the underlying computer system on the database system. We discuss centralized systems, client–server systems, and parallel and distributed architectures in this chapter.
