Book Description

Signals and Images: Advances and Results in Speech, Estimation, Compression, Recognition, Filtering, and Processing cohesively combines contributions from field experts to deliver a comprehensive account of the latest developments in signal processing. These experts detail the results of their research related to audio and speech enhancement, acoustic image estimation, video compression, biometric recognition, hyperspectral image analysis, tensor decomposition with applications in communications, adaptive sparse-interpolated filtering, signal processing for power line communications, bio-inspired signal processing, seismic data processing, arithmetic transforms for spectrum computation, particle filtering in cooperative networks, three-dimensional television, and more.

This book not only shows how signal processing theory is applied in current and emerging technologies, but also demonstrates how to tackle key problems such as how to enhance speech in the time domain, improve audio quality, and meet the desired electrical consumption target for controlling carbon emissions.

Signals and Images: Advances and Results in Speech, Estimation, Compression, Recognition, Filtering, and Processing serves as a guide to the next generation of signal processing solutions for speech and video coding, hearing aid devices, big data processing, smartphones, smart digital communications, acoustic sensors, and beyond.
