  Pattern recognition - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A complete pattern recognition system consists of a sensor that gathers the observations to be classified or described; a feature extraction mechanism that computes numeric or symbolic information from the observations; and a classification or description scheme that does the actual job of classifying or describing observations, relying on the extracted features.
Statistical pattern recognition is based on statistical characterisations of patterns, assuming that the patterns are generated by a probabilistic system.
Pattern recognition is studied in many fields, including psychology, ethology, and computer science.
