Paper Abstract

A new hybrid electrical/optical system for pattern classification is proposed. The optical circuit consists of c sets of analog electro-optic Bragg modulators, each capable of performing an n-dimensional inner product. This circuit is coupled with an optical threshold comparator to provide a binary representation of the class index. Pattern classification is effected through the use of a linear discriminant. The hybrid system is sufficiently rapid to make on-line classification feasible.
