The Latest News, Articles, and Events in Signal Processing

IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing

This paper investigates an intelligent reflecting surface (IRS) assisted simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) system. Multiple IRSs deployed on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and ground building are considered in the proposed system for enhancing transmission of information and energy simultaneously. The optimization problem is formulated to maximize the average achievable rate over N time slots by jointly optimizing power splitting (PS) ratio, transmit beamforming, phase shifts and trajectories of UAVs.

IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing

The papers in this special section focuses on signal processing advances in wireless transmission of power and information. Wireless power transfer (WPT) and wireless information and power transfer (WIPT) have received growing attention in the research community in the past few years. In this special issue, a total of fourteen papers present state-of-the-art results in the broad area of wireless transmission of information and power with a special emphasis on signal processing advances.

This year, all eligible IEEE Signal Processing Society Members were able to cast their vote for the next IEEE Signal Processing Society President-Elect. The President-Elect will sit on the IEEE Signal Processing Society Board of Governors beginning 1 January 2022 and will serve until 31 December 2023, when they will be elevated to Society President.

With the year coming to a close, I couldn’t help but reflect on our experiences in 2020 and 2021. I began my term as president of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) roughly 65 days before we were told to work from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As I write this column 18 months later, I find myself, like many of you, still largely working remotely.

Given the increasing prevalence of facial analysis technology, the problem of bias in the tools is now becoming an even greater source of concern. Several studies have highlighted the pervasiveness of such discrimination, and many have sought to address the problem by proposing solutions to mitigate it. Despite this effort, to date, understanding, investigating, and mitigating bias for facial affect analysis remain an understudied problem.
IEEE Signal Processing Magazine
Researchers in an almost endless number of fields are embracing artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to develop tools and systems that can predict and adapt to a wide range of changing situations, optimize system performance, and intelligently filter signals. In areas as diverse as firefighter protection, solar power optimization, and exoplanet discovery, researchers are turning to AI, ML, and signal processing to help them achieve breakthroughs that were unimaginable only a few years ago.
IEEE Signal Processing Magazine
Recent advances in the field of machine learning have shown great potential for the automatic recognition of apparent human emotions. In the era of Internet of Things and big-data processing, where voice-based systems are well established, opportunities to leverage cutting-edge technologies to develop personalized and human-centered services are genuinely real, with a growing demand in many areas such as education, health, well-being, and entertainment.

Affective computing is computing that relates to, arises from, or deliberately influences emotion or other affective phenomena. Human emotion and affect in general are fundamental to human experience, influencing cognition, perception, and everyday tasks such as learning and communication, but are also fundamental to human health and well-being. 

Nominations are due 15 January annually for the IEEE Technical Field Awards (TFAs). Download nomination forms and award-specific criteria.

Data Competitions are a great way to engage the global technical community to provide insight and analysis on your research data. IEEE DataPort is holding its inaugural Data Competition contest. As part of the contest, IEEE DataPort will select three Data Competitions to sponsor, providing $5000 in cash prizes for the winners of the three selected Data Competitions.

IEEE SPS has built a streamlined mechanism for employers to add a job announcement by simply filling in a simple job opportunity submission Web form related to a particular TC field. To submit job announcements for a particular Technical Committee, the submission form can be found by visiting the page below and selecting a particular TC.

The Signal Processing Society (SPS) has 12 Technical Committees that support a broad selection of signal processing-related activities defined by the scope of the Society.

The IEEE Signal Processing Society has developed guidelines related to SPS Chapter social media and Chapter Activities.

The 2022 Membership Renewal year has begun and 1st notice renewal bills were mailed to members on October 1st. Members are encouraged to renew early online. On the membership renewal site, members can explore an interactive catalog of 2022 offerings and customize their renewal. 

EEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership of the IEEE. It honors members with an outstanding record of technical achievements, contributing importantly to the advancement or application of engineering, science and technology, and bringing significant value to society.
