Abstract:

The report covers progress in the third year on a Project THEMIS contract for research in Learning Control Systems and Pattern Recognition. Topics covered include academic progress, system stability studies, learning systems, digital predictive compensation, resolution improvement in pattern recognition systems, photoptic receptor systems, and thin film diode research. The report is divided into four sections. The first section covers academic progress. It reports on new courses developed as a result of the research program, on graduate degrees obtained and on publications in the technical literature of research results. Section II reports on progress in three areas under learning control systems. The first area involves studies of man as a learning controller. The second area concerns ideal prediction with a learning system. The third area is the stability of learning control systems. Section 3 reports on progress in the pattern recognition area. Topics covered are A mechanization of the McVey-McRee sequenctial enhancement scheme Use of adaptive threshold elements for image boundary enhancement Signal perturbation theory A priori error estimates for certain classes of pattern recognition machines. Section 4 reports on progress in the development of photosensitive receptor systems. Research has been done on the use of fiber optic methods for converting from video information to electronic information. The Evans Laboratories have been very cooperative in producing integrated photodiode arrays for our use. Author
