Parallel Knowledge Base Systems
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.
