Abstract:

During the period 1 July 1987 - 30 June 1988, the research under Grant AFOSR-84-0181 has been concerned with binary parallel optical computing architectures with particular attention to cellular logic and symbolic substitution for pattern recognition and numerical operations. Our approach has been to experimentally implement binary optical cellular logic processors and interconnection arrays define an instruction set and software suited to optical systems and to study generalizations of optical cellular logic processors such as the hypercube and pyramid. Recent accomplishments include the experimental implementations of a 54-gate binary optical cellular processor with instruction decoders, inputoutput, memory and testbranch functions symbolic operations and the development of binary image algebra algorithms for scale and shift invariant pattern recognition.
