We propose a pattern classification model using a selective perception ability of human beings. Generally, human beings recognize an object by putting a selective concentration on it in the region of interest. Much better classification and recognition could be possible by adapting this phenomenon in pattern classification. First, the pattern classification model creates some reference cluster patterns in a usual way. Then it generates an SPM(Selective Perception Map) that reflects the mutual relation of the reference cluster patterns. In the recognition phase, the model applies the SPM as a weight for calculating the distance between an input pattern and the reference patterns. Our experiments show that the proposed classifier with the SPM acquired the better results than other approaches in pattern classification.
