Abstract : Neuromines are functional elements that can take on any of a number of transfer functions. Usually, neuromines have several inputs and one (distinct) output, and they are so named because their functioning has some similarity to neuron functioning. The computing power or capability of any one neuromine is generally quite limited, but the computing power of a large network (where large means having more than a million interconnected neuromines) is great enough to handle problems of considerable complexity. The theory of neuromine nets is concerned with functional completeness, connectivity, goals, and possible methods of mechanizing networks. The report presents some topics in each of these areas, and a discussion of the requirements for a decision making network patterned after the reticular formation of the brain. (Author)
