Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 1715)


Learning in the context of a pattern recognition system is defined as the process that allows it to cope with real and ambiguous data. The various ways by which artificial decision systems operate are discussed in conjunction with their learning aspects.
