Pattern Recognition and Classifiers

Pattern recognition is a very active field of research intimately bound to machine learning and data mining; also known as classification or statistical classification, pattern recognition aims at building a classifier that can determine the class of an input pattern. The area is about training such classifiers to do tasks that could be tedious, dangerous, infeasible, impractical, expensive or simply difficult for humans. 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).
