Advances in computer technology and applications in Japan
This book contains chapters written by eminent scientists on the latest development in computer technology and applica- tions in Japan. The objective of the book is to provide an awareness of the considerable advances being made by Japane- se scientists on the general area of information technology and in the so-called Fifth Generation Computer Systems. In the first chapter, Watanabe of the NEC Corporation, descri- bes advanced architecture and technology of supercomputing systems. This theme is followed by Nakamura of Tohoku Uni- versity in the next chapter. Another type of supercomputer for vector processing, the FACOM VP 2000 Series is then des- cribed by Uchida ofFujitsu Ltd in Chapter 3. Expert systems are presented in the next two chapters by Ue- no and Oomari of Tokyo Denki University and by Koseki and Goto of the NEC Corporation. Important applications in com- puter graphics are described in Chapter Six by Ishii and Mu- rakami of Fujitsu Laboratories. Hayahi from the same Labora- tory then discusses neurocomputers in Japan. The final chap- ter by Noguchi of Tohoku Universityillustrates an important application in communications.
