Human Perception

Humans have developed highly sophisticated skills for sensing their environment and taking actions according to what they observe, e.g

Understanding spoken words

reading handwriting

distinguishing fresh food from its smell

We would like to give similar capabilities to machines

- A pattern is an entity, vaguely defined, that could be given a
name, e.g.,

- fingerprint image,
- handwritten word,
- human face,
- speech signal,
- DNA sequence,

- Pattern recognition is the study of how machines can
- observe the environment,
- learn to distinguish patterns of interest,
- make sound and reasonable decisions about the categories of the patterns.

- We are often influenced by the knowledge of how patterns
are modeled and recognized in nature when we develop

pattern recognition algorithms.

- Research on machine perception also helps us gain deeper
understanding and appreciation for pattern recognition

systems in nature.

- Yet, we also apply many techniques that are purely
numerical and do not have any correspondence in natural

systems.
