Abstract

In this chapter, we discuss the various theoretical and implementation issues and approaches to parallel knowledge base systems. The main problems concerning parallel execution of rules are: how to speed-up the matching of rule conditions by distrubuting them in a multiprocessor machine, and how to execute rules in parallel in such a way that the sequential semantics of rule programs are preserved. The discussion includes parallel production systems, parallel deductive, and parallel active databases.
