Contests in Signal Processing and Machine Learning

During the last couple of months a few new Signal Processing and Machine Learning contests were finished and new ones were initiated. A selection of some contests includes a contest by Home Depot on predictive relevance of search results and two contests on image recognition.More »

Update from the AASP-TC

The AASP TC’s mission is to support, nourish and lead scientific and technological development in all areas of audio and acoustic signal processing. These areas are currently seeing increased levels of interest and significant growth providing a fertile ground for a broad range of specific and interdisciplinary research and development. More »

Recent Patents in Signal Processing (May 2016) – Markovian models

For our May 2016 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of Markovian probabilistic modeling in signal processing applications, including Markov chains, Hidden Markov Models, Markov Random fields and Monte Carlo simulations.More »

What Should We Learn From… Brain Signal Analytics?

The goal of the Special Issue of SPM on Brain Signal Analytics May 2016 is to bring together a diverse but complementary set of tutorial/review articles demonstrating the importance of incorporating signal processing strategies into the advances in neuroimaging techniques, data analytics, and modeling for brain function.More »

Easier Access to Patent Data through USPTO Open Data Portal

Michelle K. Lee, under secretary of commerce for intellectual property and director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), recently announced new open data initiatives that will make access to tons of patent data much easier.More »
