Course Objectives 1. Instill in the students an understanding of where Pattern Recognition sits in the hierarchy of artificial intelligence and soft computing techniques 2. Develop expertise in various unsupervised learning algorithms such as clustering techniques (agglomerative, fuzzy, graph theory based, etc.), multivariate analysis approaches (PCA, MDS, LDA, etc.), image analysis (edge detection, etc.), as well as feature selection and generation 3. Provide the student with the ability to apply these techniques in exploratory data analysis
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Ability to formulate and describe various applications in pattern recognition
  • Ability to understand the Bayesian approach to pattern recognition
  • Ability to mathematically derive, construct, and utilize Bayesian based classifiers and non-Bayesian based classifiers both theoretically and practically
  • Ability to identify the strengths and weakness of different types of classifiers
  • Ability to validate and assess different clustering techniques
  • Ability to apply various dimensionality reduction methods whether through feature selection or feature extraction
  • Ability to use computer tools (such as Matlab) in developing and testing pattern recognition algorithms
  • Ability to complete a term project
Course Content Introduction to the theory of pattern recognition, Bayesian decision theory, Maximum likelihood estimation, Nonparametric estimation, Linear discriminant functions, Support vector machines, Neural networks, Unsupervised learning and Clustering, Applications such as handwriting recognition, lipreading, geological analysis, medical data processing, d
