NetWork is an experiment in distributed computing. The idea isto make use of idle time on personal workstations while retaining theiradvantages of immediate and guarantied availability. NetWork wants tomake use of otherwise idle resources only. The performance criterion ofNetWork is the net work done per unit time - not computing time or othermeasures of resource utilization. The NetWork model provides correspondingprogramming primitives for distributed computing. An implementation of adistributed asynchronous neural net serves as test application.
