Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP A NEURAL NETWORK IMPLEMENTATION OF AN IDENTIFICATION AND CONTROL COMPUTER FOR NONLINEAR DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS. THIS NEUROCOMPUTER, CALLED THE "PARAMETRIC AVALANCHE", WILL INTEGRATE SENSOR DATA FROM ARBITRARY ARRAYS OF SENSORS, DETECT SPACE-TIME PATTERNS, ANDSYNTHESIZE ACTUATOR RESPONSES TO THOSE PATTERNS CONSISTENT WITH MISSION OBJECTIVES AND SYSTEM SURVIVABILITY. THE PROPOSED DESIGN IMPLEMENTS A GENERALIZED KALMAN FILTER ON SIGNALS OF LARGE DIMENSIONALITY REPRESENTING NONLINEAR DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS IN NONGAUSSIAN NOISE -- A FEAT WHICH IS COMPUTATIONALLY INTRACTABLE ON THE MOST POWERFUL NONNEUROMORPHIC COMPUTERS-- AND IT IS CAPABLE OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL INTERACTIONS WHICH EXHIBIT THE PROPERTIES OF TRUE MACHINE COGNITION.
