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 are:

  • General principles of data analysis: overfitting, model selection, regularization, the curse of dimensionality.
  • Linear statistical models for regression and classification.
  • Neural networks.
  • Support vector machines.

The subjects treated in the part on geometrical pattern recognition are:

  • Model fitting.
  • Matching point patterns.
  • Matching curves and regions.
Knowledge of elementary probability theory, statistics and linear algebra is presupposed.
