Conclusions The perceptron concept which this project developed has been shown to be of both theoretical and practical value. Its original purpose, that of a brain model, has been a motivating force for most of the work described in Section 2 summary of results obtained between July 1957 and December 1960, but has had less influence on later work on this project. The practical, in an engineering sense, application of the perceptron concept has been far reaching. Early perceptron studies showed the value of a perceptron system as a pattern recognition and classification system. With this idea as a nucleus, numerous projects were established to study the contribution which a perceptron system might have in the solution of a variety of pattern recognition problems. At CAL, Project PICS was established to study the value of perceptron pattern classification systems in automatic photointerpretation. A large number of research projects in the areas of both theory and practice have been created by the interest aroused by early perceptron work. Author
