Unformatted text preview: EE 649 Pattern Recognition – Spring 2010 Class Meetings: TR 2:20PM–3:35PM Room: Zachry 128D Credits : 3 Course Objective: This course aims to introduce the basic elements of Statistical Pat- tern Recognition, focusing on critical mathematical and statistical aspects underlying pattern recognition methods. After a brief review of probability theory, we will cover fundamental concepts of classification, such as Bayesian classification and classification consistency, followed by a study of several families of classification rules, error estima- tion, dimensionality reduction, and model selection, including an introduction to Vapnik- Chervonenkis theory. Performance will be assessed by means of one midterm exam and one final exam, four homework assignments, and one computer project. Instructor: Ulisses M.
