Paper Abstract

Parallel-processing architectures consisting of multiple optical adaptive associative modules, cascaded and interconnected in particular configurations, are being developed for applications requiring the manipulation of massive amounts of symbolic information. Specific optical implementations of the individual adaptive heteroassociative modules (elements) are presented and their operational theory and behavior are discussed. These modules adaptively learn and store a series of associations in the form of electronic charge distributions in an optical control device called a microchannel spatial light modulator.
