Author Affiliations +
An optical neural network based upon the Neocognitron paradigm is introduced. A novel aspect of the architectural design is shift-invariant multichannel Fourier optical correlation within each processing layer. An innovative bipolar neural weights holographic synthesis technique is introduced to implement both the excitatory and inhibitory neural functions. Multilayer processing is achieved by iteratively feeding back the output of the feature correlator to the input spatial light modulator and updating the Fourier filters. By designing the neural net with characteristic features extracted from the target images, successful pattern recognition with intra-class fault tolerance and inter-class discrimination is achieved. A detailed system description is provided. Experimental demonstrations of a two-layer neural network for space objects discrimination is also presented.
