[di′strib·yəd·əd in′tel·ə·jəns]
(computer science)
The existence of processing capability in terminals and other peripheral devices of a computer system. Also known as distributed logic.

distributed intelligence

Also known as "distributed logic," it refers to separating the processing in a large system into multiple subsystems or extracting certain processing functions from the main system and placing them into separate machines. In the days of centralized mainframes, it referred to moving screen handling, data entry validation and other pre-processing steps from the mainframe to "intelligent terminals" in order to relieve the central processor. See intelligent terminal and distributed processing.
