Signal Processing for Communication

The Signal Processing for Communication group focuses on establishing digital algorithms tackling a wide range of challenges arising in human communication.

From the speaker perspective, challenges arise in the presence of speaking impairments. From the listener perspective, challenges arise in the presence of hearing impairments. From the acoustic environment perspective, challenges arise in the presence of undesired interferences such as noise and reverberation.

With these challenges in mind, the high-level objectives of the group are to establish novel digital signal processing and machine learning algorithms for speech, audio, and multimodal signals to automatically detect speaking and hearing impairments, to provide speaking and hearing assistance, and to improve the communication experience in the presence of undesired interferences.
