Abstract : This report presents a summary of the technical status for the period 2/1/98 - 4/31/96. Use of our SPERT neurocomputing board is becoming more widespread as the boards have now been distributed to six other sites. Along with the hardware and software, we provided a one week training course in Berkeley for programmers from the sites. The high level software effort also moved forward, with the beta version of Sather 1.1 nearing release. In our analog auditory preprocessor research, we have completed characterization of our low power Markov model decoder chip. One of our graduate students has turned in his Ph.D. dissertation on related algorithmic approaches.
