Over time, a myriad of applications have been generated for pattern classification algorithms. Several case studies include parametric classifiers such as the Multi-Layer Perceptron (MLP) classifier, which is one of the most widely used today. Others use non-parametric classifiers, Support Vector Machine (SVM), K-Nearest Neighbors (K-NN), Naïve Bay...
