10 years of news and resources for members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society

December 2015

In November 2015, IEEE Potentials published a theme issue focusing on the intersection of engineering and science with the arts. This engineering and art theme issue presents articles that dissect and present, in simple terms, the many interesting outcomes possible when we begin to wear the hats of both an engineer or scientist and an artist.

The IEEE Jack S. Kilby Signal Processing Medal, awarded for outstanding achievements in signal processing, was presented to Louis L. Scharf "for pioneering and sustained contributions to statistical signal processing and its practice."

The IEEE James H. Mulligan, Jr. Education Medal, awarded for a career of outstanding contributions to education in the fields of interest of IEEE, was presented to Simon S. Haykin "for contributions to engineering education in adaptive signal processing and communication.”

Welcome to the Winter 2015 edition of the IEEE Speech and Language Processing Technical Committee's Newsletter! This issue of the newsletter includes 5 articles and announcements from 23 contributors, including SLTC own staff reporters and editors. Thank you all for your contributions!

Researchers at Texas A&M University have developed a wearable device prototype that can translate American Sign Language into English in real-time. This technology provides a solution to communication problems between deaf and hearing people.

Now 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 at the related TC section pages.

To submit job announcements for a particular Technical Committee, the submission form can be found by visiting the page below and clicking on a particular TC. A link for the form can be found in the sidebar menu of the TC pages. Jobs can also be viewed from its individual TC pages or a combined listing that includes all TC jobs.

During the last couple of months a few new Signal Processing and Machine Learning contests were initiated. Some of the ongoing ones with a strong relation to Signal Processing include a contest for whale recognition and one for building an AI system.

For our December 2015 issue, we cover recent patents dealing with stereo vision hardware and algorithms. The section below covers patents granted recently for stereo vision viewing systems, wide field-of-view stereo vision platform, stereo vision applied in agriculture, or in dice recognition, and algorithms for head-mounted display.
