Overview

  • An input could be the ZIP code on an envelope, a satellite image, microarray gene expression data, a chemical signature of an oil-field probe, a financial record of a company and many more. 
  • The classifier may take a form of a function, an algorithm, a set of rules, etc. Pattern recognition is about training such classifiers to do tasks that could be tedious, dangerous, infeasible, impractical, expensive or simply difficult for humans.
  • The Pattern Recognition - Classifiers programme is offered by the Bangor University.
  • Pattern recognition faces many challenges in the modern era of massive data collection (e.g. in retail, communication and Internet) and high demand for precision and speed (e.g. in security monitoring and target tracking). New methodologies are needed to answer these application-born challenges.
