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

June 2017

In the mid-1940s, a few brilliant people drew up the basic blueprints of the computer age. They conceived a general-purpose machine based on a processing unit made up of specialized subunits and registers, which operated on stored instructions and data. Later inventions—transistors, integrated circuits, solid-state memory—would supercharge this concept into the greatest tool ever created by humankind. So here we are, with machines that can churn through tens of quadrillions of operations per second. We have voice-recognition enabled assistants in our phones and homes.

Recent years have seen a rapid increase in the number of machine learning and signal processing contests. Some of those currently open include: From Kaggle hosted contests, Google is inviting the Kaggle community to join efforts to accelerate research in large-scale video understanding, while giving participants access to the Google Cloud Machine Learning Engine.

The Amazon Lex service is now generally available, announced at the Amazon Web Services (AWS) 2017 San Francisco Summit. Amazon Lex is a fully managed AI service that enables developers to build conversational interfaces into any application using voice and text. It is powered by the same deep learning technologies used in Amazon Alexa.

For our June 2017 issue, we cover recent patents dealing with audio coding.

The IEEE Signal Processing Society Chapter of the Year Award will be presented for the seventh time in 2018. The award will be presented annually to a Chapter that has provided their membership with the highest quality of programs, activities and services. Nominations should be submitted to Theresa Argiropoulos (t.argiropoulos@ieee.org), who will collect the nominations on behalf of Nikos Sidiropoulos, Vice President-Membership. Nominations must be received no later than 15 October 2017.

Please refer to the following webpage for the latest updates on upcoming conferences in Signal Processing. Listing of all conferences.
 

Please visit the Conferences and Events page on the IEEE Signal Processing Society website for Upcoming Lectures by Distinguished Lecturers.

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. Visit the SPS Job Submission Form.

Overview
The Board of Governors of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) has allocated $20,000 for Member-Driven Initiatives for the 2017 calendar year. The funding is open to all Signal Processing Society members, Chapters and Committees. However, all proposals must include the involvement of the local Chapter to encourage geographic development. Allocation of funds will be competitive.
