Paper Abstract

Neural networks are usually described mathematically using sets of coupled non-linear differential equations. Thus, we can determine the response of the network to any input stimulus by numerically integrating the corresponding differential equations (which can be computationally intensive). In this paper, a new algorithm is presented for determining the input-output behavior of laterally inhibited neural networks. This algorithm is based on an analytical understanding and thus does not involve any numerical integrations. Initial results indicate that this new algorithm provides a speed up of up to three orders of magnitude. We also propose a VLSI Systolic Array implementation of this algorithm.
