The development of a pattern recognition architecture based on vector quantization techniques is presented which is applied to the recognition of handwritten bank forms. After an overview of nearest-neighbor classification and clustering, a fast completely binary version of the k-means algorithm is introduced and results for latge character databases are given. An integration of these methods in a multi-agent environment is discussed. Both the efficient implementation on general MIMD processors and a realization on a dedicated SIMD architecture are presented.
