Automatic pattern recognition is usually considered as an engineering area studying the development and evaluation of systems that imitate or assist the human ability of recognizing patterns. It may, however, also be considered as a science that studies the natural phenomenon that human beings (and possibly other biological systems) are able to discover, distinguish and characterize patterns in their environment, and identify new observations accordingly. The engineering approach to pattern… CONTINUE READING
