Description: I am pleased to submit the following technical report to Oak Ridge National Laboratories as an accomplishment of the 6 (six) week appointment in the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission`s Historically Black College and Universities Faculty Research Participation Program, Summer 1994 (August - September 11, 1994). In this project, an approach for pattern recognition using neural networks is proposed. Particularly, a Boltzmann machine, a Hopfield neural net model, is used in pattern recognition with desirable learning ability. The Boltzmann machine features stochastic learning, which acts as the connection dynamics for determining the weights on the connections between the neuron-like cells (processing elements) of different layers in the neural network. An algorithm for pattern recognition using Boltzmann machine is also presented, which could be coded with C programming language or others to implement the approach for efficient pattern recognition. Finally, a follow-on research work derived from this project is planned if the author could win another summer appointment in 1995 from the Science/Engineering Education Division, Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education, Oak Ridge National Laboratories.
