The processor industry has reached the point where sequential improvements have plateaued and we are being flooded with parallel hardware we don’t know how to utilise. An efficient, general-purpose and easy-to-use parallel model is urgently needed to replace the von Neumann model. We introduce and discuss the self-modifying dataflow graph, an unusual model of computation which combines the naturally parallel dataflow model with local graph transformations to eliminate the need for a global memory. We justify why it is a promising candidate.
