Among numerous pattern recognition methods the neural network approach has been the subject of much research due to its ability to learn from a given collection of representative examples. This paper concerns with the optimization of a weightless neural network, which decomposes a given pattern into several sets of n points, termed n-tuples. A population-based stochastic optimization technique, known as Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), has been used to select an optimal set of connectivity patterns to improve the recognition performance of such .n-tuple. classifiers. The original PSO was refined by combining it with a bio-inspired technique called the Self-Organized Criticality (SOC) to add diversity in the population for finding better solutions. The hybrid algorithms were adapted for the n-tuple system and the performance was measured in selecting better connectivity patterns. The aim was to improve the discriminating power of the classifier in recognizing handwritten characters by exploiting the criticality dispersion in the swarm population. This paper presents the implementation of the hybrid model in greater detail with the effect of criticality dispersion in finding better solutions.
