    I did Content Addressable Memory in grad courses. It has immediate applications in today's massive databases and search engines.

    Imagine a query calling for all blue balls between 5 and 6-cm diameter and rather than searching the entire database, all objects that fit those criteria stood up and identified themselves.

    The way to implement this is with massive quantity of distributed processors, especially since hardware is so inexpensive today. Each processor would be responsible for its own database and will respond when it finds a match to a query.
