Initiatives & Trends

Jeff Dean, senior fellow at Google, presented how to understand data using deep learning, at Spark Summit 2016, in San Francisco, CA.

Researchers from the Future Interfaces Group, an interdisciplinary research lab at Carnegie Mellon University, have developed a wearable interface that turns the skin on your arm into a touchscreen for your smartwatch.

For our June 2016 issue, we cover recent patents dealing with hardware and signal processing issues of medical imaging.

During the last couple of months a few new Signal Processing and Machine Learning contests were finished and new ones were initiated. A selection of some contests includes a contest by Home Depot on predictive relevance of search results and two contests on image recognition.

For our May 2016 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of Markovian probabilistic modeling in signal processing applications, including Markov chains, Hidden Markov Models, Markov Random fields and Monte Carlo simulations.

The goal of the Special Issue of SPM on Brain Signal Analytics May 2016 is to bring together a diverse but complementary set of tutorial/review articles demonstrating the importance of incorporating signal processing strategies into the advances in neuroimaging techniques, data analytics, and modeling for brain function.

Michelle K. Lee, under secretary of commerce for intellectual property and director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), recently announced new open data initiatives that will make access to tons of patent data much easier.

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 technologists globally. For each initiative, you can find a wealth of knowledge, resources, and opportunities in which to participate. Visit each featured portal for access to upcoming conferences, news articles, technical papers, related standards, professional organizations, and academic programs.

For our February 2016 issue, we cover recent patents dealing with range image formation and processing.

For our March 2016 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of time of flight technology development and applications, used for mobile device communication, tomography, 3D localization, dynamic range control and range imaging systems.
