Signal Processing & Multimedia

Extracting or recovering useful information while reducing unwanted noise can be achieved using sophisticated mathematical methods and computation to process signals (audio, video, electromagnetic, biomedical, remote sensing, multimedia and others). Applications include multimedia compression, communications, networked media systems, augmented reality, radar and remote sensing, neuroscience, and biomedical systems. In addition to using theoretical analyses and systematic experiments to study the underlying principles, we often build realā€time test beds and prototypes to validate and demonstrate our ideas. Examples include:

  • Image and video coding,
  • Media streaming,
  • Augmented and virtual reality,
  • Compact descriptors for visual search,
  • Personalized and immersive media,
  • Computational imaging and display,
  • Remote sensing of the earth and other planets,
  • Sensors for driverless cars,
  • Signal processing for neuroscience and biomedicine.
