Statistical Analysis, Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis - SAMBA
The SAMBA department has comprehensive theoretical and practical knowledge in the fields of statistics, pattern recognition and image analysis. We are one of Europe's largest and most competent groups within applied statistics and statistical-matematical modelling. We cover a broad spectrum of methods and are a world leader in some of these areas. The appropriate choice of method for the various problems is thus one of our strengths. Many calculations involve uncertainty and the accurate calculation of this quantity is an important speciality.
