      Two probabilistic interpretations of the n-tuple recognition method are put forward in order to allow this technique to be analysed with the same Bayesian methods used in connection with other neural network models.

      The continuous n-tuple classifier was proposed by the author as a new type of n-tuple classifier that is ideally suited to problems where the input is continuous or multi-level rather than binary.

      Therefore an image processing technique that utilises a trainable n-tuple pattern recognition algorithm is under investigation.
