We describe an optical disk based system for handwritten character recognition. The recognition scheme is basedon a radial basis function approach to pattern classification. The optical system computes the Euclidean distancebetween an unknown input and 650 stored patterns at a demonstrated rate of26,000 pattern comparisons per second.
