      The goal Objective of the course is for the students to be informed about the statistical methods for pattern recognition in terms of medicine: hypothesis testing, parametric and nonparametric classification, clustering.
      The outcome Learning outcomes of the course are following: students´ ability to generate or to collect high quality and informative training sets of data, to apply appropriate statistical pattern recognition technique (hypothesis testing, parametric or nonparametric classifier), to design system for data clustering.
      Contents of lectures Probability decision-making methods. Evaluation of competing hypotheses Bayesian analysis. Inductive methods based on the minimization of risk. Decision-making methods based on explicit knowledge. Evaluation decision system.
