Abstract
NEUTRAL NETWORKS ARE A PROMISING SOLUTION TO SEVERAL PROBLEMS IN THE APPLICATION OF PARALLEL PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY FOR ADAPTIVE RECOGNITION AND RESPONSE TO COMPLEX PATTERNS. UNFORTUNATELY, IT IS NOT KNOWN HOW TO GET A NEURAL NETWORK TO RECOGNIZE PATTERNS INDEPENDENTLY OF THE VALUES OF THEIR FEATURE PARAMETERS WITHOUT INCORPORATING SPECIAL INVARIANT TRANSFORMS INTO THE SENSOR ARRAY FOR EACH SUCH FEATURE. THIS PROPOSAL INTRODUCES THE CONCEPT OF THE "PARAMETRIC AVALANCHE", WHICH DESCRIBES HOW A NEURAL NETWORK CAN ASSOCIATE PATTERNS THROUGH THE ACTIVATION OF FEATURE PATHWAYS OTHER THAN SIMPLE TIME PROXIMITY. THROUGH THIS MECHANISM, WE DESCRIBE NOT ONLY HOW TO MEASURE THE SPECTRAL PARAMETERS OF A SIGNAL, BUT ALSO HOW TO TRACK THE THREAT AND GUIDE A COUNTERMEASURE TO DEAL WITH IT.
