Holographic Neural Network for Word-Break Recognition
In recent years, there has been interest in optical implementations of neural networks in the hope of developing optical supercomputers to solve computationally massive problems such as pattern recognition by emulating the human brain. Many experimental demonstrations have shown that optics can provide parallel processing, globally distributed information storage, and analogue computing, and hence is a good match with neural networks. For example, work on optical associative memories has beautifully demonstrated auto-associative recall: recalling full information from a partial or partially incorrect cue.
