Abstract:

Our approach is hybrid and multidisciplinary. We marry pattern recognition and neural net techniques. We also marry optical and digital technologies. A hybrid neural net thus results. We also concentrate on the use of one basic hybrid architecture that is useful for implementing various optimization and adaptive neural nets. Our work thus distinguishes between these two general classes of neural nets optimization and adaptive with both being realizable on the same basic hybrid architecture. KR
