The hyperbolic tangent function is commonly used as the activation function in artificial neural networks. In this work two different hardware implementations for the hyperbolic tangent function are proposed. Both methods are based on the approximation of the function rather than calculating it, since it has exponential nature. The first method uses a(More)
The advantage of RTR systems usually comes with some costs. The required time to map some areas of a program to an FPGA is considerable and affects the performance of RTR systems. Several methods have been developed to speed up the configuration process in these systems. Configuration compression can reduce the total number of write operations to load a(More)
A holistic system for the recognition of handwritten Farsi/Arabic words using right}left discrete hidden Markov models (HMM) and Kohonen self-organizing vector quantization is presented. The histogram of chain-code directions of the image strips, scanned from right to left by a sliding window, is used as feature vectors. The neighborhood information(More)
This paper presents a fuzzy hybrid learning algorithm (FHLA) for the radial basis function neural network (RBFNN). The method determines the number of hidden neurons in the RBFNN structure by using cluster validity indices with majority rule while the characteristics of the hidden neurons are initialized based on advanced fuzzy clustering. The FHLA combines(More)
This paper introduces a novel method for human face recognition that employs a set of different kind of features from the face images with Radial Basis Function (RBF) neural network called the Hybrid N-Feature Neural Network (HNFNN) human face recognition system. The face image is projected in each appropriately selected transform methods in parallel. The(More)
