US Patent 7409375 - Nanoparticle neural interconnections for independent component analysis

Independent component analysis is a methodology for extracting distinct signals from a mixed signals such as being able to ascertain a single voice in a crowded party. This patent from Knowmtech teaches a system for using nanoparticles in a neural network interconnection system to facilitate such analysis. Claim 1 reads:

1. A system for independent component analysis, comprising:

a feedback mechanism based on a plasticity rule; and

an electro-kinetic induced particle chain forming a neural network, wherein said feedback mechanism and said electro-kinetic induced particle chain is utilized to extract independent components from a data set.
