This paper proposes a novel design for a parallel nonadaptive binary pattern classifier. The structure employs random-pulse (stochastic) computing elements to economically realize multimodal nonlinear discriminant functions similar in form to those used in potential function classifiers. The technique achieves efficient hardware utilization by employing a READ-ONLY memory (ROM) without addressing circuits to store modes and simultaneously execute parallel stochastic multiplications required in discriminant function computations.
