A hardware-accelerated novel IR system

Abstract

AURA (Advanced Uncertain Reasoning Architecture) is a generic family of techniques and implementations intended for high-speed approximate search and match operations on large unstructured datasets. This paper continues the AURA II (Advanced Uncertain Reasoning Architecture) project's research into distributed binary Correlation Matrix Memory (CMM) based upon the PRESENCE (PaRallEl Structured Neural Computing Engine) hardware architecture [14]. Previous work has described how CMMs can be seamlessly implemented onto multiple hardware PRESENCE cards to accelerate core CMM operations. To demonstrate the system, this paper describes how a novel CMM-based information retrieval (IR) system, called MinerTaur, was implemented using multiple PRESENCE cards distributed across a cluster.
