Initiatives & Trends

University of Washington researchers have created the first publicly available dataset of labeled classical music, named MusicNet. MusicNet is a collection of 330 freely-licensed classical music recordings, together with over 1 million annotated labels indicating the precise time of each note in every recording, the instrument that plays each note, and the note's position in the metrical structure of the composition

For our January 2017 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of emotion recognition. The below patents deal with hardware and software components of up-to-date emotion analysis systems, and various applications of the latest technological developments.

Several interesting machine learning and signal processing contests have are currently active, including among others the a nature conservancy challenge aimed at monitoring of fisheries and a challenge focusing on satellite imagery feature detection.

For our December 2016 issue, we cover recent patents dealing with point cloud processing, including point cloud segmentation, mesh generation, point cloud registration and object separation.

Tesla recently released a demo showing what its autopilot sensors see when the vehicle keeps itself on track, avoids pedestrians, and parks itself.

This month's featured IEEE News source is IEEE Smart Grid Newsletter.

The October edition of the IEEE Smart Grid Newsletter is a special issue on the role of standards in the smart grid. It covers the important role standards in interoperability, interconnection, ICT, security, and more of the future power grid.

IEEE Future Directions is your resource to emerging technologies within IEEE. The team has identified specific technologies as primary focus areas and has established them as formal initiatives to engage IEEE and the general public. For each initiative, you can find a wealth of knowledge, resources, and opportunities to participate. Visit each featured portal for access to upcoming conferences, news articles, technical papers, related standards, professional organizations, and academic programs.

For our November 2016 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of handwriting recognition, proposing novel hardware and software tools and signal processing algorithms for character separation and recognition, word extraction and content analysis.

Researchers from Disney Research have built a cordless one-legged hopping robot that can bounce up to 7 seconds/19 times without falling over. They employed a linear elastic actuator in parallel (LEAP), which placed a voice coil actuator (VCA) in parallel with compression springs, to act as the primary weight-bearing actuator for the one-legged hopping robot.

For our October 2016 issue, we cover recent patents dealing with radar imaging. The section below covers patents granted recently for radar signal visualization, synthetic radar imaging, compressive imaging techniques, object detection and fusion, and radar based navigation.
