                         Computing Networks (RCNs) on speech and image recognition tasks. 
                         Our work introduces different architectures of RCN-based systems 
                         along with a coherent task-independent strategy to optimize the 
                         reservoir parameters. We show that such systems are more robust 
                         that the state-of-the-arts in the presence of noise and RCNs can 
                         be used for both robust recognition tasks as well as denoising 
                         approaches. Moreover, the successful application of RCNs on 
                         different tasks using the proposed strategy supports our claim 
                         that it is task-independent.",
