have architectures appropriate to the natural-language processing tasks. Some natural candidates for improvements in this area include true associative memories, memories with highly distributed processing, separate processors for syntactic, semantic, pragmatic, and processing phases of language, hardware for analyzing speech, and so on. Already work is underway in these areas.
