The purpose of this work is to compare statistical and connectionist techniques for patterns recognition. Connectionist approach is based on feedforward artificial neural network, self-organizing maps or hybrid algorithms which are also compared. An alternative preprocessing method to pattern recognition problems is also suggested.
