The purpose of this letter is to discuss our research into parallel systems software and hardware, and parallel problem solving. Under the current grant, a detailed design and partial implementation of a parallel problem solving system, PRISM parallel inference system, based on logic was achieved. The PRISM requires that the ZMOB parallel processor be available for use. In addition, systems software and hardware have been developed. It is estimated that ZMOB will become available for use during the Fall of 1983. Hence, a full test and debugging of PRISM cannot be achieved under the current grant. At the end of the current grant we expect to have accomplished, as a minimum, all of the objectives proposed. That is, in the area of parallel problem solving, the initial PRISM has been fully designed individual programs have been implemented and tested in a non-parallel environment and investigations have been made into extensions to the initial design.
