Hema A. Murthy: Signal Processing Guided Machine Learning

HemaHema A. Murthy is currently a Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. She has been with the department for the last 35 years. She currently leads an 18 Institute consortium that focuses on speech as part of the national language translation mission, an ambitious project where the objective is to produce speech to speech translation in Indian languages and Indian English.

Signal Processing Guided Machine Learning

In this talk we will focus on using signal processing algorithms in tandem with machine learning algorithms for various tasks in speech, music and brain signals. The primary objective is to understand events of interest from the perspective of the chosen domain. Appropriate signal processing is employed to detect events. Machine learning algorithms are then made to focus on learning the statistical characteristics of these events. The primary advantage of this approach is that it significantly reduces both computation and data costs. Examples from speech synthesis, Indian art music, and neuronal signals and EEG signals will be considered.

Her talk takes place on Tuesday, February 8, 2022 at 13:00 CET, virtually on zoom https://cesnet.zoom.us/j/91741432360.
