Abstract:
We discuss some possible future applications of polychannel system technology. A polychannel system integrates simplex and duplex communication with personal computation in order to realize the scaling advantages of simplex communication while retaining the transaction processing capability of duplex communication. Our observations about the future of polychannel systems are based upon our experience with the Boston Community Information System, a polychannel system that we have operated in the Boston area for over five years.
