Abstract
ATCURE is a real-time, open, high-performance computer architecture optimized for automatically analyzing imagery for such applications as medical diagnosis, character recognition, and target cueing. ATCURE's tightly coupled heterogeneous architecture includes specialized subsystems for input/output, image processing, numeric processing, and symbolic processing. Different specialization is provided for each subsystem to exploit distinctive demands for data storage, data representation, mixes of operations, and program control structures. This paper discusses ATCURE in the context of the evolution of computer architectures, and shows that heterogeneous high-performance architecture (HHPA) computers, an emerging category of parallel processors characterized by superior cost performance, and of which ATCURE is an example, are well suited for a wide range of image information processing applications.
