Inspired by the structure of the human brain, artificial neural networks have found many applications due to their ability to solve cumbersome or intractable problems by learning directly from data. Neural networks can adapt to new environments by learning, and deal with information that is noisy, inconsistent, vague, or probabilistic. This volume of Neural Network Systems Techniques and Applications is devoted to major applications in Image Processing and Pattern Recognition
