...create a state/output picture 

The output/state picture displays the data on the output/state grid. The output/state grid is located on the right side of the simulator. It has two types of cells: regular cells are shown as squares and boundary cells as rectangles half or quarter the size of a normal cell.
The initial state values are  -1.0 (white) and the default drawing value is 1.0 (black). The output/state grid can be manipulated similarly to the input grid described in How to...create an input picture.
  • The "set" button stores the current state to the initial state of the CNN. This facility is useful if you want to simulate a cascade of more than one two-dimensional CNN's, where the output of the first layer is the input of the second layer and so on...
  • The "reset" button restores the initial state to the present state. It is described in How to...enter a template set.
  • Tip: If you draw onto the output grid using a drawing value greater than +1.0 or less than -1.0, the output value of the specific cell will be represented by black, white or gray. The reason for this effect is that the state of the specific cell is set to the drawing value, not the output value. The output function is bounded to the area [-1 ..1]. If the output of the CNN is displayed, you will always see a gray-scaled image. For more information about the output nonlinearity see How to...set model characteristics.
  • Press the labeled by "Output Y=" to display the state grid. To change back to the output grid press the same button (labeled by "State X=").
