Contents:In this course we study statistical pattern recognition as well as geometric pattern recognition.

The subjects treated in the part on statistical pattern recognition (first 5 weeks) are:

  • General principles of data analysis: overfitting, bias-variance trade-off, model selection, regularization, the curse of dimensionality.
  • Linear statistical models for regression and classification.
  • Support vector machines.
  • Neural networks
  • Unsupervised learning/Clustering.

The subjects treated in the part on geometrical pattern recognition (last four weeks) are:

  • Point patterns: matching, similarity, fitting to models.
  • Patterns in polygonal curves, polygons, trajectories, and other geometric data.
  • Similarity measures, metrics, outliers.
The small project concerns applications of geometric pattern recognition and involves literature search, surveying, brainstorming, and a short document (at most four pages).

Knowledge of elementary probability theory, algorithms, statistics, and linear algebra is presupposed.
