The PES Center for Pattern Recognition is involved in research projects in the ubiquitous areas of signal processing and pattern recognition. It focuses on designing mathematical and engineering tools to solve computational problems in biomedicine, biometric recognition, optical character recognition and text analytics, video processing and various applications of data mining. Thus, researchers at the Center for Pattern Recognition work at the interface of multiple disciplines including biomedicine, healthcare, mathematics and multidimensional signal processing. Assist-devices for various applications such as healthcare and education are prime-movers behind most of the work taken up at the Center. The Center is committed to the dissemination of knowledge in the core areas of pattern recognition and signal processing and related domains.
