Course outlines:

Formulation of the basic tasks solved in pattern recognition. Bayesian and non-Bayesian tasks. Two special useful statistical models. Conditional independence of features. Gaussian models. Strightening of the feature space. Estimation of probabilistic models. Parametric and nonparametric methods. Experimental evaluation of classifiers. Receiver operator curve (ROC). Learning in pattern recognition. VC dimension. Estimate of the needed length of the training sequence. Learning in pattern recognition. VC dimension. Estimate of the needed length of the training sequence. Linear classifier. SVM classifier. Kernel methods. Convolutional neural networks. Unsupervised learning. Cluster analysis. EM (Expectation Maximization) algorithm. Intro to structural methods embedded into the statistical framework. Recognition of Markovian sequences. Structural pattern recognition, a classical approach. Experiences learned from practial implementations of pattern recognition methods.

Exercises outline:

The subject does not have labs or exercises. Students may write a training paper with the help of the lecturer.
