New SPS Panel Series: The Impact of Recent ML & AI Advancements in Signal Processing Education

Date: 23 October 2023
Time: 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET (New York Time)
Panelists: Alan Bovik, Edward J. Delp, Sharon Gannot, Aggelos K. Katsaggelos
Anna Scaglione, Andreas Spanias

Join us for the inaugural SPS Panel Series sponsored by the Education Board to learn and discuss how recent advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence are impacting how we educate the next generation of signal processing practitioners and researchers.

Questions such as “How should signal processing education be adapted to incorporate recent advancements in ML and AI?”, “How do you envision SP laboratory assignments to change?”, “How do you think ML/AI tools will impact the way we advance SP technologies?” will be discussed by a panel of expert signal processing educators.

Don’t miss this opportunity to join the conversation on how AI and ML are reshaping signal processing! The roundtable discussion will conclude with a Q&A session from the audience.
