Title: HTML-5 & Neural networking?
Post by: Airthumbs on 25/01/2013 18:33:14
Is it possible using HTML-5 to allow the possibility of connecting thousands of computers together to create a neural network?

Is there blurring between HTML and Java?  I may be a bit behind the times with HTML, but I've thought it of a purely display language, and interacting with a server. 

The power comes in with the JAVA which is executed on the client.

There have been several virtual supercomputer projects, in theory downloading a small app to clients which then run calculations in their free processor time. 

Video cards tend to have high speed, massively parallel processing, and have been used for things like local simulation of neural nets.

At the end of the last century HTML was restructured after HTML4.01 into a type of w3c.org specified "XML" but retaining much of its purpose.
"Neuro networking" would be better comprehended as "Network Mapping" and as far as i am aware a type of XML is used for that purpose of both network mapping and associating CGI commands but are platform software specific.

I hope you mean JAVA , not javascript.
Javascript is a "script"(text) language fed to a "runtime interpreter" program read from a .js MIME type text file or embedded segment of html or xml or sgml.
Java is a C like typed language, compiled into "byte-code modules"(mixture of special instructions and machine language instructions like a C DLL or C unix .so module) for a Java runtime interpreter called a Java virtual machine.
