In: Summer School on Biometrics 2003, June 2003, Alghero, Italy.


We present a concise tutorial on statistical learning, the theoretical ground on which the learning from examples paradigm is based. We also discuss the problem of face detection as a case study illustrating the solutions proposed in this framework. Finally, we describe some new results we obtained by means of an object detection method based on statistical hypothesis tests which makes use of positive examples only.
