Pattern Recognition, Data-Mining and Machine Learning

Due to the increasing possibilities of information and computer technology, there is a strong tendency to collect and integrate more and more data from heterogeneous sources. To discern patterns in these complex data sources, special techniques have been developed, which are often referred to as machine learning, data-mining or pattern recognition.

Image analysis

Digital images can be regarded as a multivariate, highly structured sources of data, from which features and patterns need to be extracted (image analysis).
