About us

The pattern recognition group (PRG) at the Institute of Computer Science of the University of Bern researches novel and groundbreaking algorithms in pattern recognition, machine learning, and data mining. The group is led by PD Dr. Kaspar Riesen.

Actually, science is facing rapidly increasing amounts of data (e.g., high-throughput profiles of biological systems, to name just one example). The ability of managing, searching, classifying, or interpreting these data sets has emerged to a crucial scientific challenge. It is one of our primary goals to spread the state-of-the-art in pattern recognition in various scientific disciplines. Moreover, we propose and research novel and pioneering algorithmic solutions for specific research problems potentially solvable by means of pattern recognition techniques.
