Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0104826A1] A method for recognising, identifying or classifying a spectrum, image or other input data sequence, using a pulse-coupled neural network (PCNN). The PCNN ouputs a time signature of binary barcode data, which has a one-to-one correspondence with the input. This may then be taken to a recognition engine, such as a further neural network, which identifies it on the basis of predetermined, known, reference time signatures of barcode data. The recognition process is therefore easier and faster than if the recognition engine acted directly on the basis of reference spectra or images.
