We show the possibility to exploit the non-linear behaviour of artificial neural network (ANN) for the identification of the early-type component of the population of the core of clusters of galaxies. We result in a measurement of the luminosity function of the E/S0 galaxies which disfavours the hypothesis of a universal LF and calls for dynamical influences.
