Pattern Recognition (6 points)


Leader: Dr Barry Richardson

Gippsland First semester 2004 (Day)
Gippsland First semester 2004 (OCL)

Synopsis: Pattern recognition is considered in terms of feature extraction, top-down versus bottom-up principles of perception, and conscious versus unconscious processes. The design of artificial sensors is examined in the context of normal receptors (both human and animal) and sensory substitution systems (devices for the blind and deaf). Theoretical issues for discussion will include extrasensory perception and multisensory convergence.

Assessment: One laboratory report (1000 words): 25% + Laboratory exercises (CD based) 25% + one examination (two hours): 50%

Contact Hours: 3 hours per week (two 1-hour lectures and 1-hour laboratory session)

Prerequisites: COG1111 or GSC1111
