This paper introduces on architecture of a modular neural network (MNN) for pattern recognition, more recently, the addition of modular neural network techniques theory have been receiving significant attention. The design of a recognition system requires careful. The paper also aims to use the architecture of this Modular Neural Network for pattern recognition in order to optimize the architecture, and used an integrator that will get a good percentage of image identification and in the shortest time possible.
