Paper Abstract

Recent progress in coherent optical pattern recognition is reviewed. Emphasis is given to techniques for multiclass distortion-invariant pattern recognition. Real-time and practical architectures and algorithms are described, and recent results on extensive data bases are noted. Feature-extraction and correlation architectures are chosen as the two major approaches. The feature-extraction techniques considered include Fourier coefficients, chord distributions, and moments. The correlator approaches emphasize the use of synthetic discriminant functions to achieve multiclass distortion-invariant pattern recognition.
