From what I know, you set the speed (kts or .mach) on the autopilot/autothrottle, and the computer adjusts the thrust to, accelerate, slow, or hold the set speed.

You can select the autothrottles to hold an airspeed, mach, or N1/EPr setting. The system figures out how much throttle change is necessary to hold either one of those things, and inputs that to the throttles.
