This is one of the speciality foundation courses for master degree candidates majoring in Computer Application Technology and Electronic Science & Technology. The research of Patter Recognition focuses on recognizing or classifying physical objects automatically with machines instead of people. It is developing fast in recent decades and has systematically constructed theories and methods which are broadly applied. This class deals with the fundamentals of concepts, methods and algorithms in pattern recognition, and emphasizes the combination of theory and practice. We introduce lots of examples to tell how these techniques can be used, avoiding bringing in many complex mathematical derivations. Students who take this course are required to grasp the basic theories and methods, and be capable to solve practical problems with them. Furthermore, it is expected to lay the foundations of innovating new approaches for the students.
