Paper Abstract

A programmable and reconfigurable optical/digital hybrid neural processor with 1024 neurones is described. The relatively large scale and flexibility of the processor benefit by the mutual complement of the optics and an on-line microcomputer. As an example of application, a target classification of 4 kinds of aircraft based on their binary images rotated in a plane by arbitrary angles is performed. The model is a cascaded neural network consisting of three subnets. The principle of the classifier and computer simulation are outlined. In the preliminary experiments, more than 89% of the unlearned images and imperfect ones can be classified correctly.
