This paper describes an optical system architecture for implementation of a radial basis function (RBF) pattern classifier, and another optical disk based system for handwritten character recognition. A processing rate of 2,600,000 binary operations/s, equivalent to 13,000 Euclidean distances/s is achieved, limited by an upper processing boundary of nearly 1011 binary operations. Another system that demonstrates additional robustness and on-line learning capability is also discussed.
