Abstract

A color exemplar-based Hamming net as applied to a color image classifier is presented. The color decomposition and composition techniques for constructing a polychromatic Hamming layer and winner-take-all (WTA) layer interconnection weight matrix (IWM) are discussed. We have simplified the WTA algorithm to reduce the number of iteration cycles in the WTA layer. To confirm the operation of the color Hamming net we provide simulation and experimental demonstrations.
