Patterns can be any number of items that occur repeatedly, whether in the behaviour of animals, humans, traffic, or even in the appearance of a design. As technologies continue to advance, recognizing, mimicking, and responding to all types of patterns becomes more precise. Pattern Recognition and Classification in Time Series Data focuses on intelligent methods and techniques for recognizing and storing dynamic patterns. Emphasizing topics related to artificial intelligence, pattern management, and algorithm development, in addition to practical examples and applications, this publication is an essential reference source for graduate students, researchers, and professionals in a variety of computer-related disciplines.
Watching the environment and recognising patterns with the end goal of basic leadership is central to human instinct. This book manages the logical train that empowers comparable observation in machines through pattern recognition, which has application in differing innovation regions-character recognition, picture handling, modern computerization, web looks, discourse recognition, therapeutic diagnostics, target recognition, space science, remote detecting, information mining, biometric recognizable proof-to give some examples. This book is a composition of central subjects in pattern recognition utilizing an algorithmic approach.

During the past two decades there has been a considerable growth in interest in problems of pattern recognition and image processing (PRIP). This inter est has created an increasing need for methods and techniques for the design of PRIP systems. PRIP involves analysis, classification and interpretation of data. Practical applications of PRIP include character recognition, re mote sensing, analysis of medical signals and images, fingerprint and face identification, target recognition and speech understanding. One difficulty in making PRIP systems practically feasible, and hence, more popularly used, is the requirement of computer time and storage. This situation is particularly serious when the patterns to be analyzed are quite complex. Thus it is of the utmost importance to investigate special comput er architectures and their implementations for PRIP. Since the advent of VLSI technology, it is possible to put thousands of components on one chip. This reduces the cost of processors and increases the processing speed. VLSI algorithms and their implementations have been recently developed for PRIP. This book is intended to document the recent major progress in VLSI system design for PRIP applications.
