Abstract
Pulsed-Coupled Neural Network (PCNN) is an oscillatory model neural network where grouping of cells and grouping among the groups that form the output time series (number of cells that fires in each input presentation also called `icon'). This is based on the synchronicity of oscillations. Recent work by Johnson and others demonstrated the functional capabilities of networks containing such elements for invariant feature extraction using intensity maps. PCNN thus presents itself as a more biologically plausible model with solid functional potential. This paper will present the summary of several projects and their results where we successfully applied PCNN. In project one, the PCNN was applied for object recognition and classification through a robotic vision system. The features (icons) generated by the PCNN were then fed into a feedforward neural network for classification. In project two, we developed techniques for sensory data fusion. The PCNN algorithm was implemented and tested on a B14 mobile robot. The PCNN-based features were extracted from the images taken from the robot vision system and used in conjunction with the map generated by data fusion of the sonar and wheel encoder data for the navigation of the mobile robot. In our third project, we applied the PCNN for speaker recognition. The spectrogram image of speech signals are fed into the PCNN to produce invariant feature icons which are then fed into a feedforward neural network for speaker identification.
