Paper Abstract

A hybrid neuroprocessor (NP) with bipolar optical interconnections and a personal computer (PC) for subtraction, nonlinear operation, and system control is described. The interconnection topology of the 1024 neurons in the processor can constitute either a single-layer feedback network or a multilayered feedforward one. By using different optical interconnection weight masks and corresponding PC programs, a variety of processing tasks can be performed in the NP.
