Paper Abstract

A new formulation for the processing of 2-D array images is introduced. The formulation is based on neural networks; consequently it possesses inherent fault-tolerance capabilities and exhibits impressive processing powers. The formulation essentially processes the 2-D input array to: (i) undergo two matrix multiplications, and then (ii) be processed via the usual thresholding and feedback which are characteristic of neural nets. Then an electro-optical implementation of our formulation is described. The implementation includes adaptations of the available incoherent optical techniques for the real-time multiplication of multiple matrices.
