Author Affiliations +
A novel system for associative memory is proposed and constructed in this paper. It is based on the theory of wavelet matched filtering and the associative characteristic of volume holographic storage in a photorefractive crystal. A primary image can be remembered and recovered from its deformed form or main features with the system. The photorefractive crystal in the system stands for both the cell of identification calculation and that of image storage. A high efficiency is obtained by a means of parallel processing in the system. The performance of the system is more accurate with the introduction of wavelet transform to the system, which is testified by the comparison between a conventional system and the novel system. Its application in fast query of human face from a face database is studied. The given experimental results are promising.
