A neural network architecture, the parallel self-organizing consensus neural net (PSCNN), is developed to improve performance and speed of such networks. The architecture has all the advantages of previous models such as self-organization and possesses new or superior characteristics such as input parallelism and decision making based on consensus. Due to the parallel properties of this network its parallel implementation on an N-cube machine was also studied. The architecture self organizes… CONTINUE READING
