Initiatives & Trends

Aiming to make the most of the fast-growing volume of digital data, the Obama Administration today announced a “Big Data Research and Development Initiative.”

By improving our ability to extract knowledge and insights from large and complex collections of digital data, the initiative promises to help solve some the Nation’s most pressing challenges.

Social networking applications have emerged as the platform of choice for carrying out a number of different activities online.

A new mailing list dedicated to the hot topic of Machine Listening.

Something really innovative has happened in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, where the third IEEE Workshop on Information Forensics and Security (WIFS) took place in November 2011. The 2011 WIFS, in a partnership with the Brazilian Association of Forensic Experts of the Federal Police (APCF), included in its program a series of oral presentations, posters, and demos, which represent an effort of the forensics experts to call the attention of academics to problems they often face.

At the 2011 IEEE ICASSP inPrague, the program committee revived the idea of expert overview sessions called “Trends,” which are summary talks authored by the IEEE Signal Processing Society Technical Committees and presented by their keynote experts.

Starting from its September issue, IEEE Signal Processing Magazine publishes a serious of three columns summarizing the “Trends” expert sessions. As the third part, the column articles in the January issue allow readers to access the summaries of the following Trends sessions.
