Abstract

This paper examines the potential offered by adaptive hardware configurations of a class of weightless neural architecture called the Enhanced Probabilistic Convergent Network targeted on a Virtex-II pro FPGA which is re configurable. The reconfiguration and adaptive capability of the Enhanced Probabilistic Convergent Network is a highly adaptive architecture offering a very fast, automated uninterrupted responses in potentially electronically harsh and isolated conditions. The hardware architecture is tested on a benchmark of unconstrained handwritten numerals from the Centre of Excellence for Document Analysis and Recognition.
