Pattern recognition involves the recognition of objects or patterns. Classification involves sorting out particular objects into separate distinguishable categories or classes. There are wide varieties of techniques that can be used, and the advent of powerful computers has increased the demand for practical applications. Pattern recognition and classification are at the heart of most machine intelligence systems built for decision making.
