You can now register for the BioSB Pattern Recognition course (5th edition) which will be held from September 25 – 29 in Amsterdam (AMC). In this course, we will introduce basic techniques from the fields of pattern recognition and machine learning to solve such problems. We will introduce the pattern recognition pipeline: measuring, feature extraction and selection, classification and evaluation. The course is a mixture of theory sessions and lab courses. During the lab courses Matlab will be used and a brief introduction to Matlab will be provided. The course has to be completed afterwards with a 5-10 page report describing the analysis of a biological dataset using some of the methods taught in the course.
