Abstract

The authors outline OCR (optical character recognition) technology developed at AT&T Bell Laboratories, including a recognition network that learns feature extraction kernels and a custom VLSI chip that is designed for neural-net image processing. It is concluded that both high speed and high accuracy can be obtained using neural-net methods for character recognition. Networks can be designed that learn their own feature extraction kernels. Special-purpose neural-net chips combined with digital signal processors can quickly evaluate character-recognition neural nets. This high speed is particularly useful for recognition-based segmentation of character strings.
