This talk is concerned with fundamental aspects of Intelligent Pattern Recognition (IPR) and applications. It basically includes the following: Basic Concept of Automata, Grammars, Trees, Graphs and Languages. Ambiguity and its Importance, Brief Overview of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Brief Overview of Pattern Recognition (PR), What is Intelligent Pattern Recognition (IPR)? Interactive Pattern Recognition Concept, Importance of Measurement and Ambiguity, How it works, Modeling and Simulation, Basic Principles of Road Sign Design, Safer Traffic and Transportation systems, Ambiguous (Dangerous and Bad) design of Road Signs vs Unambiguous (Good) Road Signs, How to Disambiguate an Ambiguous Road Sign? and more Examples and Applications of Finally, some future research directions are discussed.
