ELEC3612: Pattern Recognition and Machine Intelligence

This unit provides a hands-on pattern recognition and machine learning course, towards solving the practical problems in computer vision and signal processing. The content of the unit is organized in a task-oriented way, including feature extraction and selection, classification, regression, outlier detection, sparse representation and dictionary learning, etc. The fundamentals of pattern recognition algorithms, such as PCA, LDA, support vector machine, ensemble, random forest, kernel methods, graphical models, etc., are delivered in the context of computer vision (such as image and video) and signal processing (such as audio, optical, and wireless signals) applications. In addition to mathematical foundations, this unit gives the students hands-on training about how to program these algorithms using python packages.
