Abstract : The Mitsubishi Electric Corporation Central Research Laboratory is involved in the development of optical neuro devices for pattern recognition. The basic idea of the optical neuro device is to perform a vector multiplication in parallel. It uses the neural network concept to acquire the knowledge (in this case the desired pattern) from the real world through learning. It uses an array of GaAs photodetectors. They are exploring a novel concept. It has a significant impact on image recognition and identification of enemy planes, tanks, etc., during reconnaissance missions.
