Pattern recognition

Pattern recognition uses either machine learning, rules/heuristics, or analytical methods to recognize patterns in data. Active research at S&T involves facial recognition, recognizing unusual behavior to prevent terrorist attacks, predicting earthquakes, assessing risk, preventative maintenance, forecasting financial risk and return, and security applications.
