Abstract

In a 1989 article in Scientific American, David Gelernter speculated about the need and design of "Information Refineries", machines capable of taking massive amounts of data and converting it into knowledge. In order to investigate the design of a database machine which would be capable of acting as the data storage engine of Gelernter's "Information Refineries" the authors initiated the MEDUSA Project as a joint undertaking between the University of Western Sydney, Nepean, and Charles Sturt University, Mitchell.
