This paper presents a comparison between the field of artificial neural network and the field of image processing and pattern recognition. It shows that some of the adaptive processing algorithms for pattern recognition and image processing, in terms of neural networks, can be seen as adaptive heteroassociative and autoassociative memories, respectively. The similarities and differences between these two fields are addressed.
