Optical Realizations of Adaptive Resonance Theory Networks

  • Cornelia Denz


Since its conception in 1987 by G. Carpenter and S. Grossberg [15, 9], the adaptive resonance theory (ART) has become more and more attractive in solving a growing number of problems, especially in group-technology problems and in motion control. This is mainly due to its stable unsupervised learning properties and its ability to process large input-pattern fields. Successful electronic applications of ART used input fields in excess of 107 nodes.It seems that ART’s scaling properties are limited only by hardware and software implementations — a significant motivation for many researchers in the past years to exploit the features of ART in many different applications using optical realizations with their inherent potential of parallel processing.
