Digital Image Processing


Learning Outcomes

Pattern recognition is the scientific field that deals with the assignment of a label to a given input value. An example of pattern recognition is classification, which attempts to assign each input value to one of a given set of classes. The course aims to cover the most popular in the literature techniques for pattern recognition, as they are typically employed in a number of practical applications, such as speech and audio recognition, image and video analysis, biometrics and bioinformatics. The course covers the most commonly used classification algorithms, feature selection techniques, data transformation methods, and data clustering.
