Pattern Recognition

Pattern recognition includes a wide range of information processing problems, for example optical character recognition, face recognition speech recognition, medical diagnosis, etc. Almost all humans solve many of these problems very easily, however, computers have big difficulties to get good solutions. The field of pattern recognition has been developed over the last 40 years and is a still growing direction of research (e.g., data mining). The theoretical basis of pattern recognition is in statistics.
