Abstract:

An introduction to the theory of adaptive pattern recognition is presented having a scope intended to serve as a bridge between the general type of survey and the specialized works. Little or no experience of the field is assumed. There are three sections. The first is devoted to the concepts of adaptive system, pattern and pattern recognition, with due attention to establishing a relevant framework and terminology. The next section discusses in some detail some of the analytical problems inherent to the generic pattern recognition devices known as adalines, perceptrons, matched filters, and stochastic classifiers. The final section gives a brief resume of the notion of separability and of the establishment of certain conditions for its attainment by means of linear and quadratic discriminant functions. Author
