News and Resources for Members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society

June 2022

Christ Richmond (Duke University) has been named Editor-in-Chief for the IEEE Signal Processing Letters for the term 1 January 2023 through 31 December 2025.

The Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is considered to be a quintessential data preprocessing tool in many machine learning applications. But the high dimensionality and massive scale of data in several of these applications means the traditional centralized PCA solutions are fast becoming irrelevant for them. 

Privacy issues and communication costs are both major concerns in distributed optimization in networks. There is often a tradeoff between them because encryption methods used for privacy-preservation often introduce significant communication overhead.

In past decades, conventional communication primarily focused on how to accurately and effectively transmit symbols, which is categorized as the first level of communications by Shannon and Weaver. With the developments of cellular communication systems, the achieved transmission rate is gradually approaching to the Shannon limit. 

With 5G being a reality, what will 6G be? Extensive discussions have been initiated around possible paradigm shifts and new technologies for 6G in recent years. With this summer school, we aim at providing a comprehensive roadmap about fundamental theory, emerging applications, and possible enabling technologies for 6G. 

As the standardization of 5G gradually solidifies, researchers are speculating what 6G will be. One common theme is that radio sensing functionality would be integrated into 6G networks in a low-cost and fast manner. 

Prof. Rabab Ward's career includes many firsts, particularly for women in engineering and signal processing, paving the way in three continents and spanning over four decades.  This did not come easy as we discovered.  After many years of perseverance, Ward became the first woman with a Ph.D. to be appointed as professor of electrical engineering in Canada in 1981. 

Practically anyone can now generate a realistic-looking deepfake video. Many methods to detect deepfakes were recently proposed by the research community. However, it is still unclear how realistic deepfake videos are for an average person and whether the algorithms are significantly better than humans at detecting them.

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.

For our 50th anniversary in 1998, the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) worked with the IEEE History Center to prepare a monograph outlining the history of the Society. In 2023, we will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the IEEE Signal Processing Society!
