INTELLIGENT SIGNAL PROCESSING – THE CONFLUENCE OF SIGNAL PROCESSING AND PATTERN RECOGNITION
Microsoft Research –
Usually signal processing researchers are happy with their various ways of slicing and dicing the signals to explore various aspects of the signals, while the pattern recognition people are busy looking at various recognition/classification algorithms using whatever “features” from the signal are “given” to them. Usually these two groups of researchers each go their own way. But, for a lot of applications it is important to consider both the feature selection and classification method together which is typically NOT done. For example, MFCC is used in speech recognition as a feature which is supposed to be “speaker-independent” and represent what you are saying. But the same feature is used by people working in speaker identification as well!
In my talk, I will give a brief overview of popular and emerging signal processing applications and then pick one of my research areas, namely user-identification, and show how judicious feature selection helps to keep the classification part simple and allows one to develop systems which provide high performance at very low complexity.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
The program and more details are available here.
