Abstract : Accordingly, one object of the present invention is to provide a novel associative processing module which adapts in real-time as it is exposed to associated information patterns, so, at a later time presentation of one pattern results in recall of the other. Another object of the present invention is to provide a novel associative processing module which adaptively learns in real-time, even while simultaneously recalling associations. Another object of the present invention is to provide novel associative processing modules which may be interconnected and cascaded in order to obtain sophisticated processing capabilities.
