A hardware implementation of a lightly connected artificial neural network known as the Hogg-Huberman model (1) (2) is described. The hardware is built around NCR's Geometric Arithmetic Parallel Processor (GAPP) chip. A large perfor-mance gain is shown between this implementation and a simulation done in FORTRAN on a VAX 11/780. Even though the direct processor to processor communications are limited to nearest neighbors, models which require other connections can be implemented with this hardware.
