This proposal presents a novel use of Weightless Neural Networks (WNN) and Steinbuch Lernmatrix for pattern recognition and classification. High speed of learning, easy of implementation and flexibility given by WNN, combined with the learning capacity, recovery efficiency, noise immunity and fast processing shown by Steinbuch Lernmatrix are key factors considered on the pattern recognition exposed by the suggested model. For experimental purposes, the fundamental pattern sets are built and provided to the model under the learning phase. The additive, subtractive and mixed noises are applied to fundamental patterns to check out the response of the model during the recovery phase.
Field Programmable Gate arrays are used in the implementation of such model, since it allows custom user-defined models to be embedded in a reconfigurable hardware platform, and provides block memories and dedicated multipliers suitable for the model.
