Speech, Image and Video Processing Group
Research and teaching in our group is on fundamental theory and applications to real-world signal processing problems. We adhere to the departmental mission statement of "educational excellence through cutting edge research," and offer a large number of courses from the introductory undergraduate level to advanced graduate courses and directed study.
Signal processing touches a large variety of engineering problems, from communications to human-computer interaction to medical signal information processing. The specific application areas associated with research in our group include:
- Speech Processing: speech recognition for human-computer dialogs and audio browsing, speech synthesis, language identification
- Image Processing: morphological image processing, computer vision, image compression and transmission, medical image analysis
- Video Processing: video compression, networking, understanding, segmentation and tracking, content-based retrieval, multimedia applications
Fundamental theoretical work that spans multiple problem applications is in the area of modulation signal processing, signal enhancement, models of symbolic time series, pattern recognition and data compression.
