Innovation Forum on
“Signal Processing and Artificial Intelligence: Challenges and Opportunities”

Thursday, April 19, 16:00-18:00, Macleod D lecture hall

Signal Processing and Artificial Intelligence have led to major advances in a wide range of areas such as speech recognition, image analysis, and self-driving cars. The future promises many exciting advances that will benefit society. How do we get there? This Forum will examine this broad topic by beginning with several short, point-of-view presentations on SP & AI challenges and opportunities given by leaders in the field, followed by a panel discussion. Join us as we examine this topic from various perspectives including academia and industry, research and applications, cloud-based and mobile devices, human and machines.

Co-organized by John Apostolopoulos, Rico Malvar, Pascale Fung.
