We present our vision on the history of multiprocessor architectures for image processing seen under the light of Darwins Theory of Evolution, remembering our fruitful and entertaining scientific meetings with Professor Azriel Rosenfeld along the nearly 30 years of our acquaintance. We experienced the blooming of novel systems (70s and 80s), the harvesting of such systems (90s) and later, the extinction of the massively parallel systems in favor of the adoption of large clusters of fast commercial processors to accomplish the same image processing tasks.

One long argument: Azriel Rosenfeld and the genesis of modern image systems

Abstract

We present our vision on the history of multiprocessor architectures for image processing seen under the light of Darwins Theory of Evolution, remembering our fruitful and entertaining scientific meetings with Professor Azriel Rosenfeld along the nearly 30 years of our acquaintance. We experienced the blooming of novel systems (70s and 80s), the harvesting of such systems (90s) and later, the extinction of the massively parallel systems in favor of the adoption of large clusters of fast commercial processors to accomplish the same image processing tasks.
