A few months after attending the Telluride Neuromorphic Cognition Engineering Workshop, where I was part of the auditory attention group, this video hit the web. I’m still amazed that we managed to develop this real-time system, probably the first of its kind.
The forthcoming ACM Multimedia paper “Name That Room: Room Identification Using Acoustic Features in a Recording” I wrote together with Howard Lei and Gerald Friedland received a nice ICSI news feature this week.

Bayes’ theorem (from wikipedia)
The new school year has started here at UCB a few weeks ago. After some mellow summer weeks, the campus is now crowded with students again.
Motivated by recent publications which apply machine learning tools to room acoustics research (such as Shabtai et al. on room volume classification based on room impulse responses), I decided to extend my machine learning knowledge and attend the courses Introduction to Machine Learning with Stuart Russell and Statistical Learning Theory with Michael Jordan and Martin Wainwright. I’m going to use this new knowledge in a spatial sound classification project at the end of this year.
