Summary

This introductory chapter of the book provides a brief review of pattern recognition, data mining, and application of pattern recognition algorithms in data mining problems. The objective of the book is to provide some results of investigations, both theoretical and experimental, addressing the relevance of rough-fuzzy approaches to pattern recognition with real-life applications. The chapter first briefly presents a description of the basic concept, features, and techniques of pattern recognition. It then elaborates the data mining aspect, discussing its components, tasks involved, approaches, and application areas. The chapter next introduces the pattern recognition perspective of data mining and mentions related research challenges. It describes the role of soft computing in pattern recognition and data mining. Finally, the chapter discusses the scope and organization of the book.
