Paper Abstract

A JTC-based nearest neighbor classifier (JTC-NNC) is presented, by which shift-invariant pattern classification can be obtained. To efficiently utilize the spatial domain input plane, a non-zero-order JTC is introduced to remove the autocorrelation power spectra. In addition, a phase-transform technique is introduced into the JTC-NNC to improve the light efficiency and pattern discriminability. Finally, application of the JTC-NNC to optical character recognition is discussed, and computer simulation is provided to show the feasibility of the JTC-NNC.
