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

September 2017

Your vote is important! On 15 August 2017, the election of Regional Directors-at-Large for Regions 7 & 9 and Region 10 (term 1 January 2018 through 31 December 2019) and Members-at-Large (term 1 January 2018 through 31 December 2020) of the IEEE Signal Processing Society Board of Governors will open. Ballots will be mailed to SPS members. 

The IEEE annual election begins on 15 August, and the IEEE Signal Processing Society is committed to ensuring that its members are prepared with sufficient information about the candidates in order to make their best informed decisions. 

The Signal Processing Society (SPS) has 12 Technical Committees and 3 Special Interest Groups (SIGs) that support a broad selection of signal processing-related activities defined by the scope of the Society.

The ICME 2018 organizing committee invites proposals for tutorials. ICME 2018 (http://www.icme2018.org/) will be held in San Diego, USA on July 23-27, 2018.

Microsoft revealed a new deep learning acceleration platform at the Hot Chips conference held in California.

The company has designed this new system for "real-time AI" meaning that it can process all data very fast and ultra-low latency. For more details, please read https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/blog/microsoft-unveils-project-brainwave/.

The world’s best Dota 2 player Dendi was defeated by an artificial intelligence (AI) in a 1v1 game during Valve’s yearly Dota 2 tournament on August 11, 2017. The bot was developed by OpenAI, a non-profit AI research company that aims to promote and develop friendly AI to benefit humanity as a whole. 

Recent years have seen a rapid increase in the number of machine learning and signal processing contests. Some of those currently running include:

In October 2016, inside a sold-out arena in Zurich, a man named Numa Poujouly steered his wheelchair up to the central podium. The 30-yearold, who became paralyzed after a bicycle accident in his teens, had triumphed in the tournament’s most futuristic event: a video-game-like race in which the competitors controlled their speeding avatars with just their minds.
