2/13/12 Veton Këpuska 3 Pattern Classification u Goal:  To classify objects (or patterns) into categories (or  classes)  u Types of Problems:  1. Supervised Classes are known beforehand, and data samples of  each class are available  2. Unsupervised Classes (and/or number of classes) are not known  beforehand, and must be inferred from data  Feature Extraction Classifier Class i Feature Vectors x Observation s
