Initiatives & Trends

Databeans, one of the market research organizations that follow the semiconductor industry, recently published its updated worldwide semiconductor revenue forecast for 2011.

Broken down into categories, it projects market growth for discrete, analog, logic, memory, microcontroller units (MCUs), microprocessor units MPUs, opto, sensors, and the smallest sector in the list—digital signal processors (DSPs).

Beginning with our June 2011 edition, we are changing the format of the "Recent Patents" coverage. So far, we have simply listed patents issued in the previous 30 days from various signal processing areas. We believe that a much better way to cover recent patents is to highlight a particularly interesting area in signal processing, and provide a listing of the patents that have recently been issued in that area.

For most people, three dimensional (3-D) is just another example of “movie magic.” Yet for the researchers developing and refining the 3-D technologies behind today’s big-screen blockbusters, as well as for applications in a variety of other fields, the work is very real and decidedly non-magical.

Many intractable problems in multimedia analysis have been substantially aided by taking context into account, such as object recognition, image search, and photo management. Multimedia is not the only field that can benefit from recognizing the importance of context.

IEEE's Technology Time Machine (TTM), a forward looking symposia on technology trends and emerging areas of technology, is set for 1-3 June 2011 in Hong Kong.

Held in Las Vegas each January, the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is the world’s largest consumer technology trade show.

This year’s event featured 2,700 exhibitors spanning 30 product categories and covering just about every type of home, small business, and vehicle gadget.

Cloud computing is an emerging technology aimed at providing various computing and storage services over the Internet. However, Multimedia processing in a cloud imposes great challenges.

In the May issue of IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, the editorial article, by Dr. Ghassan AlRegib, raised a very interesting question. Which signal processing algorithms or theories have gone extinct (if any), and which ones have the highest impact on our current products and technologies?

IEEE Signal Processing Society Summer School on "3D and High Definition/High Contrast Video Processing Systems" will be held at National Tsing Hua University, Hsinchu, Taiwan, 4-8 July 2011.
