Primary applications for SPACE are AI algorithms that require fast searching and processing within large, rapidly changing data structures. The PADMAVATI prototype has a peak performance of 32b comparisons per second. Primitive parallel search and write instructions can be composed into arbitrarily complex arithmetic and logical operations, allowing SPACE to be used as a powerful SIMD processor.
In this paper we describe in detail the architecture and implementation of SPACE.
