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

November 2017

Google recently announced a new labeled dataset of human actions taking place in videos, named Atomic Visual Actions (AVA). It densely annotates 80 atomic visual actions in 57.6k movie clips with actions localized in space and time, resulting in 210k action labels with multiple labels per human occurring frequently. Compared with existing datasets, AVA possesses the following main characteristics:

For our November 2017 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of image and audio inpainting

Machine learning and new signal/image processing techniques are changing our lives at a rapid pace. However, would you think that your vending machine may actually have facial recognition algorithms to offer you a drink? That's new and interesting, but not so distant future.

Alterations in brain development during infancy may precede the behavioral manifestation of developmental disorders. Infants at increased risk for autism are also at increased risk for other developmental disorders, including, quite commonly, language disorders. In this paper, the authors assess the extent to which electroencephalographic (EEG) signal differences in infants at high versus low familial risk for autism are present by 3 months of age, and elucidate the functional significance of EEG power at 3 months in predicting later development.

We would like to highlight the second edition of "Time-Frequency Signal Analysis and Processing: A Comprehensive Reference" (https://www.elsevier.com/books/time-frequency-signal-analysis-and-processing/boashash/978-0-12-398499-9) by Professor Boualem Boashash. 

In this issue, we would like to pont to two online courses available via www.edx.org:

1) Sparse Representations in Signal and Image Processing: Fundamentals (https://www.edx.org/course/sparse-representations-signal-image-israelx-236862-1x)

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.

Access application here.

Webinar Details: November 28, 2017 from 11 pm to 12 am (EST) or November 29, 2017 from 11 am to 12 pm (JST)
Attendee Registration Link: Register for Webinar, by Dr. Akihiko (Ken) Sugiyama

The IEEE Signal Processing Society is very excited to offer the next webinar in our new series featuring “technical and technological innovations and their applications in signal processing” from top researchers and thought leaders in academia and industry.

Three new Members-at-Large will take their seats on the IEEE Signal Processing Society Board of Governors beginning 1 January 2018 and will serve until 31 December 2020. Nine candidates competed for the three Member-at-Large positions.
