A method is described to extract an index from a binary character image for database storage and retrieval. The index is hierarchical in nature, and different parts can retrieve character image clusters of different sizes. A hierarchy of Kohonen neural networks is used to generate the clusters on which the indexing method is based. The application is the(More)
Intracellular molecular machines synthesize molecules, tear apart others, transport materials, transform energy into different forms, and carry out a host of other coordinated processes. Many molecular processes have been shown to work outside of cells, and the idea of harnessing these molecular machines to build nanostructures is attractive. Two examples(More)
