Data Science in Signal Processing

Mission and Vision

Data Science is a theme that is at the core of many activities within the Signal Processing Society. Recently we have seen many IEEE groups focusing or pivoting towards data-driven methods. The mission of the Data Science Initiative (DSI) is to provide a common point of reference for data-related activities in SPS. It will represent the interests of all Technical Committees and Special Interest Groups, focus on providing technical guidance on data matters, and facilitate the organization of data-related activities such as symposia, special sessions, curriculum development, etc.

Upcoming Conferences
