|MSc level course on pattern recognition and machine learning methods and approaches used in signal interpretation. The aim of the course is to provide ability to apply PR and ML methods in students' own system development work. The practical exercises (Matlab) are essential part of the course giving the possibility to utilize the methods in practical problems.|
