Paper Abstract

The comparative analysis of hologram and optoelectronic implementations of neural networks (NN) shows that at least for a small-format (N < 128) and middle-format (N equals 256...1024) optical NN the optoelectronic implementation is optimum. It is based on the original optical vector-matrix multiplier. This one contains quasi-rectangular LED-array for the N-length input vector load, projective monochrome PCs LCD for weight-matrix input, quasi-rectangular array of Si-photodiodes (or CCD), controlling PC (notebook type), and additional electronics for a linkage PC and optoelectronic neural processor. The peculiarities of such an optical system assembled from the standard optoelectronic components and providing neural processing of the middle-format images (up to 103 pixels) during one stroke of a coprocessor (10...100 ns) were examined.
