Abstract : Pattern recognition schemes have been concerned, mainly, with the problem of identifying alphabetic characters, or numerals. To this end adaptive pattern recognition devices have been trained to recognize such characters. The topic discussed here is the training of an adaptive pattern recognition device, Adaline, to mimic the performance of the controller of a plant. This study discusses Adaline and the minimum square error method of adaption. Adaline is trained by observing the behavior of the controller in numerous situations. The problem of coding the information to be presented to adaline is discussed, and finally, a suitably trained Adaline takes control of the plant. (Author)
