Every January, Las Vegas becomes the center of attention of the consumer electronics industry because of the largest trade shows in the world: the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). This year’s show presented hundreds of products, featured exhibitions of 226 companies, and discussed and demonstrated the latest trends in consumer electronics.

The May 2010 “IN THE SPOTLIGHT” column of the IEEE signal processing Magazine talks about the most popular trends in CES that were enabled by signal processing or will have an impact on a venue.

In November 2009, a Symposium on "Paths Ahead in the Science of Information and Decision Systems" was held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The meeting was organized by the MIT's Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS)

, which has played and continues to play a major role in the development of this field.

# US 7,684,643 “Mutual information regularized Bayesian framework for multiple image restoration”;
# US 7,672,464 “Locating and correcting undesirable effects in signals that represent time-based media”.

US 7,646,328 “Versatile Constant Altitude Plan Position Indicator for Radars”;
US 7,645,929 “Computational Music-tempo Estimation”.

# US 7,640,069 "Editing audio directly in frequency space";
# US 7,555,432 "Audio steganography method and apparatus using cepstrum modification";
# US 7,522,773 "Using time in recognizing persons in images".

In September 2009, USA Today and other media outlets have reported a successful servicing mission to the Hubble Space telescope. The In-the-Spotlight column in the January 2010 issue of the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine provided a closer look at the imaging sensors and the associated processing and control mechanisms in the Hubble and its successor.

Synthetic attendance--immersive communications with people in a meeting happening afar--has been one of mankind's elusive dreams. The Exploratory DSP column of the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine (November 2009) discusses critical questions in immersive communications that are still awaiting resolution.

The Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is hosting the Paths Ahead in the Science of Information and Decision Systems symposium on 12-14 Novemeber 2009 in Cambridge, MA.  The symposium brings together leading researchers from all around the world who have been influential in shaping the vision of and leading the field of information and decision systems.

JPEG XR is the newest image coding standard from the JPEG committee. It primarily targets the representation of continuous-tone still images such as photographic images, and achieves high image quality, on par with JPEG 2000, while requiring low computational resources and storage capacity.
