Figure 1

The abstract architecture. Architecture of a self-assembled QMachine highlighting the distribution of processing (rectangles) and transfer bandwidth (arrows). QM distributes not only the compute cycles needed to execute the n different procedures (Σ1,2,…,n), but also the bandwidth needed the retrieve the corresponding input data (D1,2,…,n) being processed from their respective URLs (d1,2,…,n). The assembly is started by a submitter who issues a key that is endorsed by a number of volunteering web browser sessions (V1,…,n). The code is then transferred to a queue on QM where it is picked up by the volunteering browsers.
