Course Description

This course introduces the practical aspects of pattern recognition. Using WINS NDT’s Super ICEPak as a framework, the course covers the theory and applications of statistical pattern recognition and neural networks. This course is suitable for:

Scientists and Engineers involved in the design and application of signal and image interpretation systems and control systems

Basic Researchers in the engineering, physical, medical, education, environmental and military sciences who wish to apply advanced signal and image analysis and interpretation methods

Test Engineers and Technicians looking for faster and more effective ways to develop automated testing and control systems.

Course material covers sufficient theoretical background and necessary terminlogy for trainees with no background in pattern recognition as well.
