  "description": "<p>Paper Abstract</p>\n\n<p>Future Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) will require the coordination of hundreds, even thousands, of devices and component services. This will demand the capability to rapidly discover the distributed devices/services and combine them into different work ow configurations, thereby creating the applications necessary to support changing mission needs. To meet these objectives, we envision a distributed Cognitive Computing System (CCS) that consists of humans and software that work together as a &lsquo;Distributed Federated Brain&#39;. Motivated by neuromorphic processing models, we present an approach that uses hyper-dimensional symbolic semantic vector representations of the services/devices and workflows. We show how these can be used to perform decentralized service/device discovery and work ow composition in the context of a dynamic communications re-planning scenario. In this paper, we describe how emerging analogue AI &lsquo;In Memory&#39; and &lsquo;Near Memory&#39; computing devices can be used to efficiently perform some of the required hyper-dimensional vector computation (HDC). We present an evaluation of the performance of an energy-efficient phase change memory device (PCM) that can perform the required vector operations and discuss how such devices could be used in energy-critical &lsquo;edge of network&#39; tactical MDO operations.</p>",
