'Integrated' classification refers to the conjunctive or competitive use of two or more (neural) classifiers. A cooperative neural network system comprising two independently trained Kohonen networks and co-operating with the help of a Hebbian network, is described. The effectiveness of such a network is demonstrated by using it to retrieve images and related texts from a multi-media database. Preliminary results of such an approach appear to be encouraging.
