A demonstration of NetWork is available as video: Real or Windows media.
NetWork is a protocol for asynchronous distributed computing. It does not suppose a guarantied environment, nor does it suppose a homogeneous environment.
NetWork can be used on losely coupled systems, in particular on personal workstations. It is particular useful for distributed implementations of asynchronous iterations.
A model implementation is available for the Macintosh and can be downloaded as a binhexed file. The model implementation includes Spinning Brain, a distributed neural network for image reconstruction.
